Subject How to use bean property as value for html hidden field
Date Fri, 27 May 2005 16:18:53 GMT
In my JSP html:form, I want to have the value of a hidden field set to the 
(String) value of a property of a request-scoped attribute.  I tried using 
a "bean:write" as the argument to the "value=" property of the 
"html:hidden" tag, like this ...

<html:hidden property="resource" value="<bean:write name=\"resource\" 
property=\"code\" scope=\"request\"/>" />

but, on the resulting page, the value of the hidden field was set to the 
string ...

&lt;bean:write name=&quot;resource&quot; property=&quot;code&quot; 

not the value of the "code" property of the request-scoped "resource" 

I presume I could set the value of the html:hidden field using JSP <%= %> 
syntax but I was trying to see if I could do it using the Struts taglibs.

Any ideas?
