Hi,

I am generating calendar using two for loops.(Dynamic calendar)


I need to display values from the DB into the cells of calendar dynamically, so I am planning to attach a AJAX call.

Am I able to call javascript function without any handler, because I am planning to call the javascript for every iteration of loop so that I can display the values from DB while populating the cells of the table.

If anybody wants to look at my code I can post it.
Thanks in advance.

You can't. JSP runs on the server in order to format the HTML page to be sent to the client. Any JavaScript needs to execute within the browser, long after the JSP has executed and the page has been sent as the request response. Perhaps this article can help clear up how JSP processing works.

Perhaps it'd be best to back up a bit and tell us what the real problem you are trying to solve is. That way a solution that can work can be devised.

Hi Bear,

I am giving a little background of my task. framework I am using is struts.
I have couple of jsps index.jsp and calendar.jsp.
I have data in DB which consists of three columns, say (date,ticketnumber,title).
Now I have a link in "index.jsp", when I click that link, it should farward the page to calendar.jsp , which will show calendar with current month and current date highlighted and I need to display the ticketnumber column from DB to calendar.jsp and it should place ticketnumber based on the date. for example I have a row (06/21/2008 4567890 sampleticket) for this row 4567890 should be displayed in calendar.jsp in june 21st cell. likewise it should display all the ticketnumbers in specified cells of calendar.

I am able to develop the code for calendar display, and its navigating perfectly fine with change of month and year too. I also developed a script for AJAX call for displaying the ticketnumber in cell of calendar.

As I said earlier I used two for loops to generate the calendar table (So it is dynamically generated one) .

My question is How do I call AJAX script everytime loop runs(approx 30 times).

Sorry for my bad language.
thanks.
