    Neater way of template for CheckboxSetField form item Link to this post

    I'm now using the following code to display the selected checkboxes from a CheckboxSetField in a form:


    new CheckboxSetField(
       $name = "MyCheckboxes",
       $title = "Title",
       $source = array(
          "Option1" => "Option 1",
          "Option2" => "Option 2",


    <% control MyCheckboxes %>
       <% if Option1 %><li>One</li><% end_if %>
       <% if Option2 %><li>Two</li><% end_if %>
    <% end_control %>

    Is there an easier/better way of only including the selected checkboxes in my form? As the above works well with a small number of options, but quickly adds a lot of code for longer option lists.
