Don't try to fake tags.  The beauty of XSP is that it guarantees wellformed output (if there are no exceptions thrown).
Instead store the query result upfront in a List and then use a double nested loop:
  for( int outer = 0; outer &lt; idList.length(); outer += 4 ) {
          for( int inner = 0; inner &lt; 4; inner++ ) {
             int index = outer+inner;
             String id = index &lt; idList.length() ? (String)idList.get(index) : "&160;";

Subject: Table with multiple rows in xsp:logic


What I want to do is pretty basic.
I have a loop in my results to show them inside a table
Every four columns, I want to start a new row.

How can I do this ?

The code below shows what I try to do, but does not work. (And it's not the == instead of the modulo)
I'm just trying stuff in there.

<xsp:logic>ct++ ;</xsp:logic>
<a href="#">>
<esql:get-string column="id"/>

if (ct == 4)
<xsp:text disable-output-escaping="true">&lt;tr&gt;</xsp:text>
} ;

Met vriendelijke groeten,
Bien à vous,
Kind regards,

Yves Vindevogel
