>                 Key: WW-4968
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/WW-4968
>             Project: Struts 2
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Core Tags
>    Affects Versions: 2.5.14.1
>            Reporter: Nate
>            Priority: Major
>
> I have the following s:set definition:
> <s:set var="name"
>  value="buildEnvironmentSearchView.name" scope="request"></s:set>
> which I further on use as such in a Dojo input:
> <input data-dojo-type="dijit/form/ComboBox"
>  data-dojo-props="store:nameIdentificationStore, searchAttr:'name', value:'${name}'"
>  name="buildEnvironmentSearchView.name"
>  id="buildEnvironmentSearchView.name" />
> I needed to escape the value this generated for Javascript so single quotes didn't corrupt
the dojo-props, so I replaced it with 
> <s:set var="name" scope="request">
> <s:property value="buildEnvironmentSearchView.name" escapeJavaScript="true"/>
>  </s:set>
> This worked if buildEnvironmentSearchView.name is not null, but when it is evaluated
to be null, instead of name being set to null, it was evaluated to the toString value of the
top element on my valueStack: be.companyname.productname.client.struts2.layout.FieldFormatter@19b82032
> I'm not sure why this happens. In the end, I managed to resolve it by putting the s:property
directly into the data-dojo-props object, but I don't really get why this happened. Is it
intended that if you do an s:set with a null value, it returns the top value of the stack?
This doesn't seem to be documented anywhere.
