Subject Re: <html:options> tag problem
Date Mon, 17 Nov 2003 10:44:53 GMT
So your end user has to select 1 of 1800 options 8 times on one page?

I've never had trouble with options but then again i've never smoked 
enough crack to think select menus with 1800 options would be a good 

As a test you could use model 1 jsp or/and jstl to compare.,

<c:forEach var="item" items="myList">
	<html-el:option value="${item.value}">
	<c:out value="${}" />

I wouldn't be surprised if you container bails like this also, cant you 
add another step to reduce the list like an alphabet menu of something? 
Have another drop down with a-z and regenerate the menu when the user 
selects a letter.

Cheers Mark
