Passing values dynamically to a custom tag:

I am not able to pass values dynamically to a custom tag. In the loop below, the value of itemName (and quantity) changes with the loop.

This is the code I tried and the parameter name has the value as <%=itemName%> instead of the actual value of itemName.
What should I do to pass just the value of itemName (and quantity) ?

Did you indicate in the tag library descriptor (TLD) that the attribute takes run-time expressions? Eg
- Peter
