Hi everyone,

Hope that all is well.

I'm having trouble trying to show a pulldown with data in Struts 1.x.

I have the following code using iterate that shows the data in separate rows and works fine:

Now, I want to show one of those items, let's say the author values as a pulldown.

So I tried the following code:

Since I'm using the same collection as the iterate above, I thought that it should work
fine. Instead is giving me an error: "No getter method available for property bookListForm for bean under name books."

Anyway, I think it has to do with me not setting up the html:select right. I'm a

I'm not a struts 1.x guru, but by looking at the tag reference and your code, there seems to be something wrong with this part

bookListForm is your ActionForm, while the property attribute is used to specify the name of the request parameter is submitted to the next action (I think). Since you provide name attribute as books, so struts is looking for a form bean named books and a property named bookListForm in the books form bean...
For my next feat, I will require a volunteer from the audience! Perhaps this tiny ad?
