Subject Some JSP Taglib help needed
Date Tue, 01 Aug 2006 16:21:38 GMT
I want to do some thing that I think should be simple but I can't figure 
out how to do it with the Struts taglibs. So far I've never used a 
single scriptlet and I don't want to start now.

I have a number stored in a bean which I can get at just fine (tested 
with bean:write).

What I need to do is loop from 1 to that number and print a text area 
for each element in that range. Were the number three I should get the 
following output:

<input type="text" name="student_name_1"  />
<input type="text" name="student_name_2"  />
<input type="text" name="student_name_3"  />

Can I do that easily with a taglib?

To put this into context, I have a two-step form, on the first form the 
user enters the number of students in their class (as well as other 
info) and then on the second page the user is presented with the 
appropriate number of text areas to allow them to enter the names of 
each of their students. Because I'm can't think of a better way to do it 
I'm submitting the list of names in a single hidden form field separated 
by :. I was going to use Java Script to suck all the names from the text 
areas, encode them and then stick the details in the hidden form field 
in an onsubmit action. Perhaps there is a better "struts" way to do 
this. If anyone has any advice I'm entirely open to changing the way I'm 
doing this.

Thanks for your time and help,
