Hi,

I want to fill a hidden field with a value from the resource file. But it doesn't work.
I get always a runtime error for the JSP File.

<html:hidden property="filenamesave" value="<bean:message key="path.pictures"/>" />

It this possible ? Or is there another way to set the value at runtime ?

Thanks

The problem is with placing one struts tag inside another. You can't do that.

Here's the good news: since you are setting the value of the hidden field yourself, you do not need the html:hidden tag because its only added value is in prepopulation... which you're doing yourself.

You can instead use:
<input type="hidden" name="filenamesave" value='<bean:message key="path.pictures"/>'/>

This will accomplish the equivalent of what you were attempting.

Hi,

I didn't knew that I can not use a struts tag inside another.

Thanks a lot for the information and help
