Hi there!!Guys, i dont know if im going to sound dumb with this question but im trying to convert a high value like 1.000 which im getting from a bean to 1,000 on my jsp page so it can be used by another app but i cant find a way to make this work.Do i have to do something on my bean or is there a way to do this on a higher layer ?



Thanks !

Have you checked out the <fmt> JSTL tags?

I don't know what you mean by "format a title". And, it's best to start new questions in new topics rather than piling multiple questions into one topic.

By formatting i mean format a something inside an element's title x_x

Sorry for asking another question in the same topic but i thought it would be wrong to create another topic to ask something related to the question in this one .

thanks !

Doesn't help. What formatting is required? A title attribute is just a text string. Without further information, we're just swinging in the wind.

Hmm, it has something to do with my first question, sorry about not being very clear, im getting a value from a bean, a high number lets say 1000000000.00, this number is being placed in a link's title on my JSP, i need to format this to a currency format like 1.000.000.000,00, is it possible to do this from within my jsp, without having to do something inside my bean ?

Again, check out the <fmt> class of tags of the JSTL. Hint: fmt stands for format.

i dont know for sure, i've been given several custom made components to work, there are other basic libraries which i can work with but they are limiting JSTL use a ton... that being the main library of jsp i dont think i can ask for help on this here -.- ( didnt know i couldnt use JSTL until now, ugh )



but thanks a ton anyway !

Tell whoever made that decision that I said they're an idiot.

Then, you can write a custom tag or EL function to format the values for yourself using the services of java.text.NumberFormat.

Then tell the idiot how much time you had to waste re-inventing the wheel.
