Hi all,
I am new to jsp and need help.
I want to make a jsp file in which there are 8 combo box elements.
Now I am Includeing :" <%@include file="comboBox.jsp"%>" file in other various .jsp files of my projects.
But each time the requirement varies, i do not want to use all those combo box elements in other .jsp files.
Some time i need to use only 2 combo boxes and some time 3 and .......etc.I don't want to use all combo boxes every time.
Is there any way?
Please reply soon and explain in brief if possible.
Thank You.

Firstly, please read HtmlHasNoComboBox. Correct terminology is important.

Secondly, you can conditionalize using JSTL tags such as <c:if> and <c:choose>.

If I understand right you want to dynamically determine the creation of the combo box on the html page.

For example select the first and then if you select a specific value then you get to the second.

Is that what you want?

I agree. Here's the link:
