Hi Everyone,

Is there a way to pass a parameter from the struts action or use the struts ActionForm variable to a javascript fn on the jsp which should open a new pop -up browser window with that parameter ?

Thanks,
Gayatri

if you just do a bean:write inside your script tags you'll get the value of the variable as those tags are parsed before the page is loaded thus before the javascript can ever possibly be executed

Hey, I have a similar question, but instead of passing a parameter, can you pass an actual object?

For example, I have an object, and I want to pass it to a javascript function which will then call a popup.

Can only strings be passed, or can an object be passed to a javascript function?
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
