submit visualforce page when click on apex:selectCheckboxes

Hi All,

I have created multiple checkbox from selectoption. Now I want to submit the form and filter record based on selected checkbox.

Visualforce code:
<apex:selectCheckboxes value="{!checkboxSelections}" >
  <apex:selectOptions value="{!MyCheckboxes}"  >
     <apex:actionSupport event="onclick" action="{!getSelectedOrder}" /> 
APex code:
public PageReference getSelectedOrder() {
     return null;

public list<string> checkboxSelections {get;set;}  //holds the values of the selected checkboxes

public list<selectOption> getMyCheckboxes(){
    //create list of checkboxes
    list<selectOption> myOptions = new list<selectOption>();
    for(integer i=0;i<5;i++){
    myOptions.add(new selectOption(string.valueof(i),string.valueof(i)));
    return myOptions;

When I click on any chekbox then getSelectedOrder is not getting called. Can anyone help me.

<apex:actionFunction name="getSelectedOrder" action="{!getSelectedOrder}" rerender="msg"/>        
        <apex:selectCheckboxes value="{!checkboxSelections}" onchange="getSelectedOrder();">
            <apex:selectOptions value="{!MyCheckboxes}"/>
Use actionFunction instead of actionSupport and it'll work like charm. Mark as best answer if it solves your problem. Thank you.

Hi rohitash,

Action support should be added to selectcheckboxes component instead of selectoptions.
<apex:selectCheckboxes value="{!checkboxSelections}" >
	 <apex:actionSupport event="onclick" action="{!getSelectedOrder}" /> 
  <apex:selectOptions value="{!MyCheckboxes}"  />
Please  give it a try to this code. I will work fine.Please mark it as solved if it helps you.
