Subject Using Nested tag and JavaScript
Date Thu, 02 Aug 2007 15:42:41 GMT

Hey guys,

I need some help using nested tag library and javascript.  I have an
actionForm named RegistrationForm that has two AddressForm; mailing and
billing addresses. I need to implement a requirement if a user clicks a
checkbox say 'same as mailing', I need to copy the textfield values from
mailing address to billing address.

I can easily use the javascript something like this:

function copyMailingAddress {
 if (document.forms[0].copyMailCB.checked)
   document.forms[0].billingLine1.value =

The only problem I'm having is to use it with nested tag library.
In my jsp, I have following code

<nested:nest property="mailingAddress">
 <nested:text property="line1" />
 <nested:text property="line2" />


<nested:nest property="billingAddress">
 <nested:text property="line1" />
 <nested:text property="line2" />

When this jsp is rendered as html, the code will something like this:
<input type="text" name="mailingAddress.line1" value="">
<input type="text" name="mailingAddress.line2" value="">

<input type="text" name="billingAddress.line1" value="">
<input type="text" name="billingAddress.line2" value="">

Now how can I copy the values from mailingAddress to billingAddress using
above JavaScript? The dot in between name prevents to execute the above

Could anybody point me how I can resolve this problem?

Thank you,
