Description

NOTE: JSP-TAG

Generate an iterator based on the val attribute supplied.

NOTE: The generated iterator will ALWAYS be pushed into the top of the stack, and poped at the end of the tag.

Parameters

Error formatting macro: snippet: java.lang.IndexOutOfBoundsException: Index: 20, Size: 20

Examples

Error rendering macro 'code': Invalid value specified for parameter 'java.lang.NullPointerException'
Example One:
<pre>
Generate a simple iterator
<s:generator val="%{'aaa,bbb,ccc,ddd,eee'}">
 <s:iterator>
     <s:property /><br/>
 </s:iterator>
</s:generator>
</pre>
This generates an iterator and print it out using the iterator tag.

Example Two:
<pre>
Generate an iterator with count attribute
<s:generator val="%{'aaa,bbb,ccc,ddd,eee'}" count="3">
 <s:iterator>
     <s:property /><br/>
 </s:iterator>
</s:generator>
</pre>
This generates an iterator, but only 3 entries will be available in the iterator
generated, namely aaa, bbb and ccc respectively because count attribute is set to 3

Example Three:
<pre>
Generate an iterator with var attribute
<s:generator val="%{'aaa,bbb,ccc,ddd,eee'}" count="4" separator="," var="myAtt" />
<%
 Iterator i = (Iterator) pageContext.getAttribute("myAtt");
 while(i.hasNext()) {
     String s = (String) i.next(); %>
     <%=s%> <br/>
<%    }
%>
</pre>
This generates an iterator and put it in the PageContext under the key as specified
by the var attribute.


Example Four:
<pre>
Generate an iterator with comparator attribute
<s:generator val="%{'aaa,bbb,ccc,ddd,eee'}" converter="%{myConverter}">
 <s:iterator>
     <s:property /><br/>
 </s:iterator>
</s:generator>


public class GeneratorTagAction extends ActionSupport {

  ....

  public Converter getMyConverter() {
     return new Converter() {
         public Object convert(String value) throws Exception {
             return "converter-"+value;
         }
     };
  }

  ...

}
</pre>
This will generate an iterator with each entries decided by the converter supplied. With
this converter, it simply add "converter-" to each entries.
