Hi,
I wanted to use <html:link>
where user clicks on the link and an actiod would be called and would recieve a parameter
Here is what my <html:link> looks like (ViewTeamUpdates.jsp):


The attribute TEAMUPATESLIST is a request Attribute which holds an ArrayList of 'teamUpdate' which has msg_id property.

if i use only:

i do get the value of the msg id
but when used in conjunction with <html:link> it gives me following error:


which the row and column are near the paramName attribute.

Could somebody tell me what am i doing wrong.?

-Thanks

The problem here is that you can't use one custom tag as an attribute for another as you're attempting to do by using a bean:write tag for an attribute of an html:link tag.

In this case you can do what you need to do quite easily without embedding tags. Just use a combination of the paramName and paramProperty attributes instead of the paramValue attribute. Example:

I am struggling with a similar problem.

I am able to call my action file like this
<html:link action="/downloadMyFile" >Click Here</html:link>

I tried your way that you have discussed but i am struggling how to pass parameters values to my action class.

It will be great if you can send your sample jsp.
