Subject RE: Pre-popluating the select dropdown.
Date Wed, 09 Oct 2002 01:11:56 GMT
Am I missing something?Let me try to explain what I am trying to
accomplish.I have a jsp page with a dropdown .I have a list of option  and
only one of the option from that list has to be displayed as selected .The
selected option is not the same all the time.It depends on what gets pulled
from the database.So how do i set the specific option as "selected"
dynamically each time? I did not see any "selected" attribute with either
the <html:select> or the <html:option>.

I tried something like this in my jsp.
<html:select name="device" property="deviceID" value='<bean:write
name="device" property="deviceType">'>
<html:option value="1">one</html:option>
<html:option value="2">two</html:option>
</html:select>

But the value attribute does not work.

Any help is highly appreciated.
Kavitha

That's because they usually end in "RTFM"

http://jakarta.apache.org/struts/doc-1.0.2/struts-html.html#options

| Yes.  At least 3 people in the last two days have asked this question.
|  It's a popular one.  Did you try searching the archive?  Google?  Oh
| ... here's a fair one, I think:
|
|
http://www.mail-archive.com/struts-user@jakarta.apache.org/msg44110.html
|
| There are others:
|
| http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-
| 8&q=Struts+Default+Option
|
| Google does wonderous magic with the mail archive.  I have no clue how
| it finds such relevant posts, but it does a beautiful job of doing so.
|
| Hope that helps.
