Transferring data from bean:write to javascript var for textarea

Hi,

This is what I am trying to do

I have a jsp page with a textarea
<input type="textarea" name="comments" id="comments" />

Now this data goes into the database and when I do a get on this from the jsp page like

<script type="text/javascript">
var comments = "<bean:write name="myForm" property="comments" scope="request/>";
</script>

Whats happening here is if the user entered data in the textarea with line breaks, in javascript var comments looks like

var comments = This is
a sample
comment;

I get a javascript error here.

Does anyone know how do I get the textarea data from the struts tag into javascript var?

Thanks

This sounds like a JavaScript "Data-Binding" question. However, something like the following should address your question:

var comments = document.getElementsByName("comments")[0];
