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.
