I'd like to use a jquery-ui icon on a struts2 button to add a bit of visual flair to an app. The code in the jsp looks something like:
And my application.properties text is:
This almost does what I'd like, except somewhere along the line the html in the message has been escaped. The html generated looks like:
Any ideas what is doing the escaping and how to stop it? Or if anyone has done what I'm attempting and has a better way of doing it (preferably that will allow adding icons to buttons to be made via application.properties changes only)
You might have to change the template or use normal CSS. The current "xhtml" theme templates (css_xhtml might be a little better, I know someone made some enhancements to it) aren't super-good at exposing ids/classes to CSS.
All that said I'd really recommend against putting markup stuff in resource files unless there's a *really* good reason to do so. Since the label field would be accessible using straight CSS I don't think this is one of the places where it'd be necessary.
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
