I have a bean in the request that contians several properties. I want to display all of the values in the labelProperties attribute. ie instead of just showing the First Name in the labelProperty attribute, I'd like to conatenate the values of the row in the bean ie Last Name,FirstName,SSN etc. Is this possible?

Not easily, as far as I know. There are two things you could do, however:

1. Write a scriptlet that defines a string as the concatenation of all the things you want (first name, last name, ssn, etc) and use that string as the labelProperty.

2 (Better, in my opinion). Modify your bean so that there is a getLabel() method that returns firstName + lastName + ssn etc. and use labelProperty="label" in the tag.

Hope that helps.
