I am using display tag to display my report, there is a description field in my report. i want to display only part of that description initially but when user clicks on it a popup should open with full description. I have written a js function for popup but i am unable to send the data from display tag to js function

the description column looks like this




Thanks & Regards
Bilal

Shouldn't the "href" attribute be an "onClick" attribute so that the JavaScript is actually executed?

I don't understand what "i am unable to send the data from display tag to js function" means. If the JS popup should display some data, then that data must either be a parameter to the JS function, or it must be part of some other JS block elsewhere on the page that the method knows how to access.

If the JSP can generate "javascript:activatePopupDivs()", then it can generate ā€¯javascript:activatePopupDivs('This is a really long report description.')", no? Taking the string to be displayed from a request attribute instead should not be hard either.
