View Full Version : Check box problems...

07-09-2007, 09:55 PM
Apologizes if this question has been asked and answered somewhere else but I have not come across it anywhere.

The problem that I am having is that I have a JSP page that has check boxes on the page but I can not click on the check boxes in order to check them.

The following is a snippet of the code

<td width="5%" style="padding:0 8px 0 8px;">
<dmsTag:CbxTag htmlControlRefName="<%=AdvancedSearchControls.KEY_PRACTICE_CBX%>" otherHTML="tabIndex='11' style='z-index=40' title='Show only Key Practice documents'" />

I have attempted to adjust the z-index since someone had suggested that an invisible layer we have has prevented these same check boxes from being clicked in the past. I tried that changing the values to values in the billions but that didn't work nor did I think it would work.

If anyone has encountered a similar problem or has any suggestions it would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Could you maybe explain what kind of tags you are using? I havent seen dmsTag:CbxTag before. Is this something you have created your self? Normally I use javascript when I create checkboxes.

Turns out that we were checking if a click occurred outside of an AJAX box and that was preventing the clicking of the check boxes. Made the adjustment and it worked.
