Hi Usha , The code snippet <html:text property="sdate"/> , do u have sdate as a form variable ? coz as per u the working snippet has ( <input type="text" name="seldate"> ) seldate as variable. check the variable name. that is the only thing doubtfull else the code is fine n should work.
In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.
Additionally, JavaRanch is a community of people from all over the world, many of who are not native English speakers. While using abbreviations like "u" instead of spelling out "you" is convenient when text messaging your friends on a cell phone or in a chat room, it presents an extra challenge to those that are already struggling with English. Additionally, such shortcuts may confound automated translation tools that patrons of the Ranch may be making use of.
I would like to ask for your help in making the content of JavaRanch a little easier to read for everybody that visits here by not using such abbreviations.
