Hello ,
I am using struts and in a form I have a dropdown / select box
I want a selective part of the text in the dropdown to appear in Red color
Here is how the code looks like :
[CODE]
<logic:iterate id="someName" name="<%=USER_DETAILS%>" type="UserAccountDetails">
<html ption value="customerId">
<bean:write name="someName" property="Name" />--
<bean:write name="someName" property="SurName" />--
<bean:write name="someName" property="balance" />
</html ption>
</logic:iterate>
[/CODE
The one in bold is what i want in red .
Thanks in advance ,

How about setting the propertly "balance" in the bean itself along with the html tags like
String balance = "<font color='red'>"+ $(balance value here)+"</font>";

THis is how you would code it on the html side, you do not use font tags in a dropdown!
