display text in jsp

HI,

I want to know if there is a html tag way to display text on the jsp page using a form (read only, no input).

Example, we use <html:text for an input field. Likewise, do we have any <html:label property="name" /> tag to display the text?

Thanks for your time.

If you have a property called "foo" on a form bean called "MyForm", you can display this property as text on a jsp by writing the following:

<bean:write name="MyForm" property="foo" />

provided you have a <html:form name="MyForm"> tag prior to this statement.

You can also set up any javaBean for use by <bean:write> by including a <bean efine> tag prior to the statement.

If you wish it to look like a text box but not allow input, you can use the "readonly" attribute of the <html:text> tag.
