Hi, all I have the following string: String testString = "aaa bbb"; if I do an out.println(testString); It works fine. I get "aaa bbb". But if I put it into a JSP expression like: <input name="test" type="text" value=<%= testString %>> then only the part before the <SPACE> ("aaa") will be shown in my text field. How do I insert a <SPACE> into a JSP expression? Thanks.
Change this statement : <input name="test" type="text" value=<%= testString %>> to: <input name="test" type="text" value="<%= testString %>"> in your code. You are missing " " in the value attribute as it contains a space. [ July 29, 2003: Message edited by: Vijay Singh Rathore ]

Bear in mind that this has nothing to do with the JSP expression, but with your lack of putting quotes around the attribute value. If you hard-coded the string with spaces into the HTML without the quotes you would observe the same behavior. Lesson: always quote your HTML attributes as if you were writing xhtml. hth, bear
