Dispalying selected values in a jsp

I have a jsp that has 5 values for checkbox, 3 values in a drop down box. The user is allowed to check any of the 5 check boxes and select one from the drop down. Upon hitting submit we need to diplay the same page with what the user has selected.That is if he has checked 2 check boxes those two should be shown checked and the one selected from the drop down should be diplayed as it is. We would like not to do a reirect or forward. We can use session beans and servlets as part of the MVC pattern.


Any solution is appreciated.No javascripts. Only server side solution.

Is your checkboxes have the same name or they're named differently?

To get what you had posted, try use either:

request.getParameter(String name)

or

request.getParameterValues(String name) 'Use this when there is more than 1 form object with the same name

Hello,
Could you put a small piece of code to show what you are explaining and on hitting save how do i return to the same page displaying those selected options.

If you are submitting the form, then the script you are submitting to just needs to return the same page as its response.  The script has the values so all it has to do is generate the response with the the values set by putting a checked property on the checkboxes and a selected property on the correct select option.

This should get you started:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
<HTML>
<HEAD>
<%@ page
language="java"
contentType="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1"
%>
<TITLE>test.jsp</TITLE>
<%

            String chk1 = request.getParameter("chk1");
            String chk2 = request.getParameter("chk2");
            String chk3 = request.getParameter("chk3");
            String chk4 = request.getParameter("chk4");

%>
</HEAD>
<BODY>
<form method="post">
      <input type="checkbox" name="chk1" value="yes" <%if (chk1 != null){%>checked<%}%>> CheckBox 1<BR>
      <input type="checkbox" name="chk2" value="yes" <%if (chk2 != null){%>checked<%}%>> CheckBox 2<BR>
      <input type="checkbox" name="chk3" value="yes" <%if (chk3 != null){%>checked<%}%>> CheckBox 3<BR>
      <input type="checkbox" name="chk4" value="yes" <%if (chk4 != null){%>checked<%}%>> CheckBox 4<BR>
      <input type="Submit" name="submit" value="Save">
</form>
</BODY>
</HTML>

If your checkboxes have same names, here is a bit different story, where you need to assign the values from request.getParameterValues(String name) to an array, then compare with your list..

Sorry, nowsaday don't use JSP anymore, will find the exact code for you when i back home, or apparition can help instantly here? ;-) cheers

For checkboxes with same name, try something like:

<%@ page contentType="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" language="java" import="java.sql.*" errorPage="" %>
<%!
      public static String chkopt(String v, String[] values, String selected){
            for (int i=0; i<values.length; i++){
                  if (values[i].equals(v)) {
                        return selected;      
                  }                  
            }
            return "";
      }
%>
<%
      String[] chks = request.getParameterValues("checkboxname");
      if (chks == null) chks = new String[0];
%>
<html>
<head>
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
</head>

<body>
<form name="form1" method="post" action="">
  <p>You select <%=chks.length%> items</p>
  <p>
    <input name="checkboxname" type="checkbox" id="checkbox" value="1" <%=chkopt("1",chks," checked")%>>
    <input type="checkbox" name="checkboxname" id="checkbox" value="2" <%=chkopt("2",chks," checked")%>>
    <input type="checkbox" name="checkboxname" id="checkbox" value="3" <%=chkopt("3",chks," checked")%>>
    <input type="checkbox" name="checkboxname" id="checkbox" value="4" <%=chkopt("4",chks," checked")%>>
    <input type="checkbox" name="checkboxname" id="checkbox" value="5" <%=chkopt("5",chks," checked")%>>
  </p>
  <p>
    <input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Submit">
    <input name="Reset" type="reset" id="Reset" value="Reset">
  </p>
</form>
</body>
</html>

Ya.. you need to put a page on form action there.. if you want to post the request back to submit page, you can set the form action as your submit page.

Hope this is clear, cheers
