Subject AW: html:options and html:select
Date Mon, 02 Feb 2004 12:27:32 GMT
Thanks for your answer, but

I have found out, that I can use html:optionsCollection.

<html:select property="ref">
	<html:optionsCollections name="myForm" property="myListOfBean" value="id" label="name"/>

Betreff: Re: html:options and html:select

you can do the following:

<html:select name="FormName" property="xxx">
    <logic:iterate id="product" name="FormName" property="ListName">
        <option value="<bean:write name="product"
property="id"/>"><bean:write name="product" property="name"/>

'property' of the select box should be the name of the property in your
FormBean that you wish to store the selected value in.
You then iterate through the list in your form by using the <logic:iterate>
tag. For every object in your list an <option> tag is written, where the
value is the property 'id' of the current CProduct and the name displayed in
the select box is the name of this CProduc object. This may not work as it
stands due to using an Integer object - i'm not certain that you can set the
value of a select box option to an Integer object. You'd have to try it and
see, and perhaps somebody can clarify this further, but I've never tried
this myself.
