Question Re: html:OptionsCollection Tag

I have a JSP defined with using the <html ptionsCollection> tag from the Struts tag library. The code looks something like this:

Unfortunately, the label only puts out the single value, "projectId" (think a select box that just says "166").

Is there any way to adjust the properties of the label, so that maybe the value of the label might have some type of text appended to it? I doubt it is possible, but was wondering...

I'd suggest you add a getter method to the JavaBean you're using in your collection named something like getLabelForProject(). then have this method return whatever it is you want to be displayed. Then simply spcify label="labelForProject" in your optionsCollection tag.
