Hi All,
I want to apply styles to my struts-html tags
for eg:
in jsp:
---------------------------------------------
<html:link action="home">HOME</html:link>
----------------------------------------------

and in my css i want to use something like this:
-------------------------------------------------
#navigation html:link.active{
background-color: #ABC;
}
---------------------------------------------------

can we do it? it does not seem to be working , anything wrong with the code?
-Thanks

CSS is a client-side technology, Struts is a server-side technology. Your CSS knows nothing about your Struts tags. These tags get translated into HTML which is sent to the browser. It is that HTML that your CSS must match.

Check the documentation for usage of the attributes "style", "styleClass" and "styleId".

Hi,

Have a CSS defined for Anchor tag and you should get that css applied to HTML:link
Struts tag.

I have not tried the above but it should work since when the page gets rendered the Html:link tag get converted to Anchor tag.

Regards
