Search the mail archive...I had replied some similar mail... regards, Shirish -----Original Message----- From: Ritesh Singhal [mailto:ritesh_singhal@infosys.com] Sent: Wednesday, March 26, 2003 1:04 PM To: Struts Users Mailing List Subject: Setting and Getting indexed property Hi All, I am having problem setting and getting indexed property of a form bean. I have a form bean: public class ExampleForm extends ActionForm { private String id[]; private String name[]; private String address[]; public String getIdIndexed( int index ) { return ( id[index] ); } public void setIdIndexed(int index, String value) { id[index] = value; } ..... And so on } With appropriate getter and setter methods. Now in my jsp page I am trying to access these fields and display them in a table format. Something like this: I want to have the same form bean for create and edit page of the entity. So in create page I will have a table with blank fields and in edit page I will have prepopulated fields. Also in edit page I shud be able add more rows for the table. Now I don't know what property name to give in create page of the entity. Above code works fine when form bean is already populated, but problem comes when you want to create the entity. Do I need to initialize the array? And of what size? As I want it to be dynamic. Also in create page I want some default number of rows with blank pages. What shud be the property name for those text fields? Please help me. I am stuck coz of this problem.
