I have an array of checkboxes in my JSP. I am doing a validation that only two of these boxes can be selected but after the validation when the page shows all the checkboxes show as unchecked. How can I retain the value of the checkboxes in the form?

My code is posted below
<logic:iterate id="cList" name="cActionForm" property="cList" indexId="cListIndex">
<td><html:checkbox styleClass="checkRowsCheckbox" styleId="chkRow${cListIndex}" name="cList" property="checked" indexed="true" value="${cListIndex}"/></td>

First, there's an administrative matter you need to attend to:

The name you are currently displaying with your posts does not meet the requirements of the JavaRanch naming policy. Specifically, it requires that you use a first and last name that is not obviously fictitions. You can use the my profile link to change it.

Please change it before your next post.

Regarding your question:

Have you provided an indexed getter in the ActionForm with the following signature?
<pre name="code" class="core">public SomeObject getCList(int index)</pre>
Where SomeObject is the object the list contains.

Furthermore, have you provided lazy initialization behavior for this getter? The following link explains more about this.
