Subject Re: Javascript & bean message tag
Date Sat, 25 Aug 2001 20:42:14 GMT
Remember that JSP is executed on the server, when the page is being
generated, but JavaScript is executed within the browser. The <bean:message>
tag will be evaluated before the page is sent to the browser, so you can't
pass a browser-side variable to it.

What is it that you are trying to do? Perhaps we can help you find an
alternative approach.

Subject: Javascript & bean message tag

Hi all,

To summarize my problem, I try to retrieve an internationalized message with
the bean:message tag, from a Javascript function.
The attribute key of the message tag must be a function parameter (e.g. the
simple example below).

But I always got an exception telling me that the key attribute of the
message tag must be quoted.
Of course, if i use quote in the JavaScript function (return <bean:message
key='id' />) I got another exception telling me that the message for key id
is missing.

Is there finally a way to use the message tag the way I want ?

Thanks a lot.

Simple example :

<%@ taglib uri="/WEB-INF/tlds/struts-bean.tld" prefix="bean" %>

        <title><bean:message key="title.index" /></title>
        <script language="JavaScript">
            function getMessage(id) {
                return <bean:message key=id />
        <script language="JavaScript">getMessage('a.message.key')</script>
