Hi all,

I want to set attribute of custom tag with the value of form bean

I am trying to do like this

<app:tag1 attr1="bean:write name="formName" property="property1" />" />

the value going in custom tag is "property1" instead of value in property1.

Please help me.

Thanks Rajesh

Struts custom tags do not support embedding one custom tag within another. To get around this, you can either:

1-use a scriptlet instead of a <bean:write> tag.

2-Use the EL version of the tag (for example, html-el). These tags are exactly the same as the regular version except that they accept EL expressions as attrubute values.
