Subject RE: Struts 2.5 S:Select tag with Multiple True
Date Sun, 15 Jul 2018 10:18:53 GMT
I wonder why HTML needs CTRL key when we enable multiple! Anyway, I think it's out of Struts
business as an HTML issue. Unfortunately Struts Select tag doesn't provide an optional fix
for this HTML issue and you've to fix it manually via some javascript coding e.g. save current
selected items on each click and reselect all of them on each click too.

>Hi Guys,
>We are using Struts 2.5.13 in our Enterprise Java Application and one of the jsp

>I know that for selecting/deselecting multiple items in the list, we have to hold

>all the other 5 items are deselected and only the 6th item is selected.
>Without even realizing that they deselected the other items in the list they save

>So they asked is there a way to work with the multi select by selecting/desecting

>jQuery('option').mousedown(function(e) { e.preventDefault(); var selector =

>jQuery('#' + selector).trigger('change'); return false; });
>But this script only works in Chrome and may be FF but it doesn't work in IE.
>Because most of our Users uses the IE as the default browser and most of the
