  1. Hi all,

    i need to add one checkbox in displayTag column headers.
    i am able to add checkbox in all rows for the above column. but i need at the column header level. i need to do a selectall functionality, only after putting a checkbox in the column header. selectall can be done by using javascript, but unable to add one checkbox at table level.

  7. Hey Biswa,

    Can u plzz let me know how u implemented the checkBox functionality for display Tag..forget ab't header...I just need checkboxes for my line items...sample code welcome.

  8. I came upon the same problem and found (thanks to a colleague in the office) the following solution, thought not very elegant:

    <display:column title="<input type='checkbox' name='selectall' />">
      <input type="checkbox" name="select" />

  9. Hi,
    i am not able to retain checkbox values over multiple pages, when i come back the checkbox value is reset again. is there any way, i can retain the checkbox values.

  10. Thank you[ Go to top ]

    I was almost about to give up to use displaytag due to this problem. Thank you.
  11. adding checkbox title[ Go to top ]

    A bit after the fact I know, but I have this:

        <display:column title="<input type='checkbox' name='selectall' onClick='selectAll(this, \"selectableCheckbox\")' />" media="html">
              <input type="checkbox" name="${}" class="selectableCheckbox" />

    which not only displays the checkboxes but also displays a tick box in the title bar which selects all.  In addition it takes the name of the checkbox from the id element in each map of myMapSet, the object being displayed.

    Also need this java script function to make it work:

    function selectAll(box, classStyle) {
        var checked = box.checked;
        document.getElementsByClassName(classStyle).each( function(checkbox){
                checkbox.checked = checked;

    which needs you to include prototype.js.
