Hi All,

Values of 3 check boxes are 1,2 and 3 are saved into one Texed Field.

 

Like...Text Field is  Blocks : 1,2,3

 

 

public Blocks__c Block= new Blocks__c(); 

Public Void blockSave()

{

       Insert Block;

}

 

public String Boxes{get;set;}
public List<SelectOption> getCheckBoxes()
{
List<SelectOption> CheckboxLists = new List<SelectOption>();
for(Integer i=1;i<=30;i++)
{
CheckboxLists.add(new SelectOption(String.valueOf(i),String.valueOf(i)));
}
return CheckboxLists;
}

 

 

// VF Page Code----------------
<apex:selectCheckboxes value="{!Boxes}">
<apex:selectOptions value="{!BlocknoLists}"/>
</apex:selectCheckboxes>

Hi Premanath,


Thanks for replying. FYI

When i am trying to insert multiselect check boxes values into TextField through Below mentioned code.

It gives Error Like "Illegal assignment from LIST<String> to String"



public Blocks__c Block= new Blocks__c();

public String[] Boxes= new String[]{};

  public String[] getBoxes()
  {
    return Boxes;
  }
    public void setBoxes(String[] r)
    {
    this.Boxes= Boxes;
    }
public List<SelectOption> getCheckBoxes()
{
List<SelectOption> CheckboxLists = new List<SelectOption>();
for(Integer i=1;i<=30;i++)
{
CheckboxLists.add(new SelectOption(String.valueOf(i),String.valueOf(i)));
}
return CheckboxLists;
}

 Public Void blockSave()
{
    Block.Blocks__c=Boxes;//Blocks__c is Text Field.
       Insert Block;
}

// VF Page Code----------------
<apex:selectCheckboxes value="{!Boxes}">

Hi

 

The Error is :

public Blocks__c Block= new Blocks__c();

Here you are takjing multiple things.

 

 Block.Blocks__c=Boxes;

 

Take one for loop for Boxes insert one by one

 

like this but not exactly

 

for(integer i=0;i<Boxes.size();i++)

Block.Blocks__c=Boxes[i];
