Struts2 checkboxlist prepopulate problem

Hi,
I am unable to figure out how to prepopulate a checkboxlist. The checkboxlist displays fine and works when I insert a record (i see the data in the db), but when I edit that record the checkboxlist is always blank/not populated. Using struts2/hibernate.

Student entity (many-to-many relationship with AwardCriteria)


AwardCriteria entity (many-to-many relationship with Student)


StudentAction - I get all possible criteria items and place them in awardCriteria


JSP checkboxlist - the list is set to awardCriteria (contains all possible criteria options). This allows me to save to the db fine (data in db is correct), but the checkboxlist never prepopulates when I edit a record


How can I get my checkboxlist to prepopulate? Any guidance greatly appreciated. Thanks.

hi,

please change in you code at jsp for display chaeck box list.

<s:checkboxlist list="awardCriteria" label="Criteria Items" listKey="id" listValue="name" name="criteria.id" value="%{id}" />


Just change this value="%{id}"

this will solve your problem.
