Subject RE: Using query string in struts-menu entry
Date Wed, 26 Mar 2003 12:15:00 GMT
Thanks to both for the tip.  I'll check the list, did not realize it
existed. The struts-menu documentaton is sparse, but its such a neat tool.

After more tracing and trying out the same URL from the browser address bar,
I think what is happening is that my security URL-PATTERN is "*.do". I'm
trying to use container based authentication to handle all *.do URL's. When
I add the query parm, it does not math that pattern anymore - I'm getting
thrown back to the logon form.

Thanks - Richard

The value for the page attribute is prepended with the context path and
is used literally in defining the link location when rendering the
menu.  What the behavior is may depend on which type of display you are
using (e.g. CoolMenus, DropDown, etc.).  As far as I know, it should
work as you expect it.  Can you verify that the URL works (like by
typing it into the browser's address box)?  Which kind of displayer are
you using?  Try looking at the generated javscript or html source to
help troubleshoot.

BTW, there is a user list specifically for this extension:
