Heelo, is it possible to add a control dynamically in a jsp page.
i uses a text box and if i enter a string another text box has to be added near to the first one else a combo box has to be added. is it possible.

The fact that you are in a JSP is moot as all this occurs on the client.

You can either create and remove the elements under Javascript control as appropriate by using DOM manipulation, or if you know what you need in advance, create all of the elements up front and hide and show them as approrpiate.
