Subject Re: image tag question
Date Wed, 15 Jan 2003 22:39:14 GMT
Have you looked at the <html:img> tag in Struts? It contains an attribute
called pageKey which you can use to specify a key that maps to an
application relative image path in the message resource file. You can
combine this with the <logic:equal> tag or something similar to determine
which image type to display (standard or none).

Subject: RE: image tag question

I think you're doing the right thing here. I recently had to implement a
custom tag which did something very similar to what you are doing: it needed
to be "I18N-able", but also differed on another attribute. I wound up
rewriting the ImageTag out of the Sturts source, and coming up with a
slightly different TLD definition.

But basically you're on the right track. You're just going to have to write
your own ImageTag.
