Subject Re: [S2] Newbie Passing S2 variables to javascript functions

Again, though, bear in mind that the <s:proprty/> tag will be evaluated 
on the server during page generation whereas the Javascript will be 
executed later, on the client, after the page is delivered.

There's no way to 'interact with the action stack in Javascript', since 
the action stack only exists during page generation and the Javascript 
runs later.

That said, techniques like the one Musachy shows below, or the previous 
examples, *will* allow you to push data from the action stack into your 
scripts at page generation time. You just can't dynamically reference 
the action stack 'live' from Javascript.

I'm not sure what you mean here; the only thing you can 'pass' is a 
Javascript literal, but that could be a string, integer, even an object 
literal. Just remember that you're generating code, so whatever you 
generate has to be syntactically valid when the browser comes to run it.

If this is all still unclear, maybe you can describe what you are trying 
to achieve in a little more detail.
