Problem with multiple select object

Hi,
I have a select box that I'm populating with choices from a database. It's working well with one exception. The .jsp code looks like this
<html:select property="userRole" multiple="true">
<html ptions collection="labelValues" property="value" labelProperty="label" />
</html:select>

So I'm using two beans here, one with user information and one with the choices for the select list. This displays the select correctly and the option associated with that user is already selected. The problem is if the user has multiple options, they don't fill in.

I'm setting the userRole value of the bean like this:
user
or, for multiples:
user, manager

It works with only one value but breaks for two or more. I've tried saving this in the bean as a String[] and an ArrayList but those don't work either. I've also tried things like user:manager, user;manager.

Any idea what I can do to get my <select> to recognize multiple values?
Thanks in advance,
Mike

Looks like you are using the Struts tags for your form elements. I'll move this along to the Web App Frameworks forum where Struts is discussed.
