help w/ struts html:options tag

Hello All,

I'm having some trouble with the <html ptions> tag and the responses that I've found on the subject don't seem to apply to my situation or work at all.

I'm using Struts 1.2.4, if that makes any difference.

I have an ArrayList that was put into request scope by the Action. I've verified that I can access it in the JSP, but the html ptions keeps complaining about lack of a getter method.

this is what the JSP looks like:
<%-- verify that ArrayList is accessible and populated --%>

<html:select property="imagetype" size="1">
<html ptions collection="imageTypeList" property="value" />

Can anyone point out what I'm doing wrong?

Hi There

What is the ArrayList of? And are you sure that whatever is in the arraylist has a getValue method? Also, make sure that there is a getImagetype() method in your form. Be sure to watch the caps to make sure it corresponds except that the first letter in the jsp must be small.

Hope this helps.

I agree. Here's the link:
