Subject RE: Indexed Tags (TextArea)
Date Wed, 05 Sep 2001 15:35:31 GMT
Hi Nathan,

THanks alot for the Info!! However, I have searched through a couple of the nightly builds
( from 22nd August to 04 September ) in the binaries and src' but none of these have the Textarea
Tag implementation you have in the TextareaTag file you sent as attachment. Do you know which
build contains the Textarea tag impl'. 
I noticed that someone has added the prepareIndex method in the BaseHandlertag so I tried
using that setup, but I get alot of problems with the builr jar file (from Aug-22-2001) since
some classes have changed locations (i.e Digester, etc. even though I place the latest struts.jar,
commons*.jar files in my classpath and the WEB-INF/lib directories)

Anyway, I tried simply adding your Textareatag file attachment to my old src files (I used
to build the latest stable release which works for indexed Text Tags) and rebuilding with
jakarta-ant but get the following error message (below).I have checked and found out that
the TextareaTag extends BaseInputTag abstract class which extends BaseHandlerTag class that
contains the indexed protected variable. Now since TextareaTag is a descendant of BaseHandlerTag,
I would expect the compiler to figure this out. Do you know the probable cause of this? Please

Your help is highly appreciated.
