Subject Using options tag with name and property attributes
Date Tue, 02 Oct 2001 10:15:31 GMT
Following the documentation, there are two ways to use the options taglib
taht renders a Collection of select option.
- First one : you use the 'collection' attribute in options tag(as
mentionned in struts-example) :
  java.util.ArrayList list = new java.util.ArrayList();
  list.add(new org.apache.struts.webapp.example.LabelValueBean("IMAP Protocol", "imap"));
  list.add(new org.apache.struts.webapp.example.LabelValueBean("POP3 Protocol", "pop3"));
  pageContext.setAttribute("serverTypes", list);
      <html:select property="type">
        <html:options collection="serverTypes" property="value" labelProperty="label"/>

Ok, this works fine.

- Second way of using options : you don't use 'collection' attribute but 'name' and 'property'
attributes instead,  that refer to a bean and its
This property is supposed to return a collection that will populate the select tag.

Actually, I don't know in this case what this collection should look like. Is it the same
as the one that we use in collection attribute (ie a
collection of LabelValueBean for example) ?
Can anyone show me an example of using options tag with name and property attributes ?

The point is that I've several select boxes in my page, and I would like to encapsulate all
the collections in one unique bean.
