i am trying to create a number of checkboxes at the and of rows of data to allow you to select a number of rows and then hit a submit button that will call an action. When the <html:multibox> tag is used the page doesnot load and give the error:

"Cannot find bean under name org.apache.struts.taglib.html.BEAN "
here is my code:

   <c:when test="${pageObject.surveyId == '104'}">
      <html:multibox property="resultId">
          <c:out value="${}"/>

which is enclosed in a form calling with a submit button.

public class AllocateResultsForm extends ActionForm {
      private String[] resultId ={};
       public String[] getResultId() {
      return resultId;

       public void setResultId(String[] strings) {
              resultId = strings;


Thanks for you help in advance.

    The standard cause of this error message is that you have not got an <html:form> on your page.
    When you use a struts html component and specify only a property, it looks for the property on the backing form bean.  So this multibox tag needs to be nested within an <html:form>
