Problem Using <c:out> to dynamically assign value to <html:text>
I use struts and JSTL in my application.
I wanted to assign value to the text field during runtime from a scoped variable in JSTL.

<html:text style="width: 150px; height: 24px" property="screenwidth" size="10" maxlength="15" value="<c:out value='${strWidth}' />" />

Instead of getting the value stored in scoped variable, the whole string is loaded into the text field.

Where i am going wrong. What i have worked out is the right way or not.

Thanks in Advance for the JSTL gurus
