using JSTL how to put data in different <td> tags

Hi Guys

I have a JSTL code which separates a String  using the delimeter (,) and put the data in one <td>
But what I need is that the separated data be placed in different <td>

Any help will be greatly appreciated
Thanks


<tr>
   <c:forTokens items="${elements}" delims="," var="current">
   <td align="center" class="alt-color" >
       <c:out value="${current}" />
   </td>
   </c:forTokens>
</tr>

Guys you are right it actually does what I was trying to do.

But there is another small problem, what I need is to manage the width of different table columns
For example the <td> should be like this
<td width="100">  </td>
<td width="400">  </td>
<td width="150">  </td>

Would you guys know how can I do this, beacuse right now I am not able to set the width of different columns. Thanks

KuldeepchaturvediCommented:
from where these width numbers are suppose to come? is it hard coded? or they are coming from the collection itself?

you need to give us a little more detail so that we can provide the right logic for the same..:-)

>> <td width="100">  </td>

BTW put it as a percentage, not absolute value.

Actually to the following code this line is passed

56, this a kitchen ware, 62C

<c:forTokens items="${elements}" delims="," var="current">
   <td align="center" class="alt-color" >
       <c:out value="${current}" />
   </td>
   </c:forTokens>

now this code puts the three different values in three different td's but I need to hard code the width. For the first column 200 px, For the second 400 px and for the third 150 px.

Thanks guys for all your help

<td width = "400px" align="center" class="alt-color" >
</c:if>
<c:if test ="${sts.count==3}">  
<td width = "150px" align="center" class="alt-color" >
</c:if>
       <c:out value="${current}" />
   </td>
   </c:forTokens>

I know its ugly code, but with given information, this the best that can be done...:-)
