I am using a product called displaytag to create tables in my jsp. It is working fine but now I have to create a link in one of the columns that display a requisition number.
My problem is that I am having syntax problems trying to use escape characters to properly create my URL for this link.
Here is what I have in my
link = "<a href=\"\\reqs\"\\NonStock.action?view=&reqNum=" + reqNum + "&entityCode=" + entity + ">" + reqNum + "</a>";
What I get when I hover over the link in my
This is half right but I do can't seem to get the rest of it.
If anyone has any experience with escape characters and can tell me what I'm doing wrong it would be greatly appreciated.

What's that \" doing after regs? That closes the href attribute!
It should probably be something like this:
link = "<a href=\"\\reqs\\NonStock.action?view=&reqNum=" + reqNum + "&entityCode=" + entity + "\">" + reqNum + "</a>";
The entire URL must be part of the href, so you can't put the closing quote until after entity.

Thanks so much for the help.
Here is how I made my fix in the event it helps someone else:
link = "<a href = \"/reqs/NonStock.action?view=&reqNum=" + reqNum + "&entityCode=" + entity + "\">" + reqNum + "</a>";
Thanks again for all the help.
