    Unhappy Multiple Form Inputs

    Hello,
    I am working on a video database webapp, one of the functions is to add a new video to the system, when doing this I want the user to enter all the actors in that film. Has anybody got any suggestions on how to read in the multiple actors from the users.

    At the moment I just have a number of list boxes, I am using JSP's.

    Thanks.

    define "read in". Do you mean store them somewhre or do you mean know which ones the user selected?

    No,
    There will be a different number of actors for each film, I was wondering if there was maybe a way of dynamically adding a new listbox when the user had completed entering an actor. I am just trying to get a better way of inputing the data rather than a long predefined number of listboxes.

    I already store the data in an oracle database via a servlet.

    Thanks.

    Hi there.

    how about asking them how many actors, and then using a 'for' loop to print out the required number?
