I'm trying to create a table dynamically using javascript(onClick). The table needs to have a drop down values. I need to populate the dropdown list with struts tag library, Is this possible ?.
Here is the code snippet of javascript.

function addRow(id)
var tbody = document.getElementById(id).getElementsByTagName("TBODY")[0];
var row = document.createElement("TR");
var td1 = document.createElement("TD");
S1 = document.createElement("select");
var oOption = document.createElement("option");
var t = document.createTextNode("");

Sorry, nope. As with all JSP custom actions, Struts tags are executed on the server in order to produce HTML markup to send to the browser. Once at the browser, no JSP activity can take place in JavaScript.

It's be easiest just to deal with straight-forward HTML, but if you need to get clever you could probably piece together an Ajax solution.
