error passing parameter in BIRT

Hello I am having an error on this ScalarParameter portion of my code.

Can you have a look and make a recommendation?

The error I am geetting is attributeBean cannot be resolved

or



<%-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
      Checkbox parameter control
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------%>
<%
      ScalarParameterBean parameterBean = ( ScalarParameterBean ) attributeBean.getParameterBean( );
      String encodedParameterName = ParameterAccessor.htmlEncode( parameterBean.getName( ) );
%>

<%-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
      Combo box parameter control
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------%>
<%
      ScalarParameterBean parameterBean = ( ScalarParameterBean ) attributeBean.getParameterBean( );
      String encodedParameterName = ParameterAccessor.htmlEncode( parameterBean.getName( ) );
      String paramValue = parameterBean.getValue( );
      String displayText = parameterBean.getDisplayText( );
      String defaultValue = parameterBean.getDefaultValue( );
      String defaultDisplayText = parameterBean.getDefaultDisplayText( );
      boolean isDisplayTextInList = parameterBean.isDisplayTextInList( );
      boolean allowMultiValue = !parameterBean.allowNewValues( ) && parameterBean.getParameter( ).isMultiValue( );
      List values = parameterBean.getValueList( );      
%>


error on these (3) are:

I don't see anywhere in that code where you declared attributeBean...so you're using an object you never created - of course it's not going to be resolvable.  

My guess is you're missing this:

<jsp:useBean id="attributeBean" type="org.eclipse.birt.report.context.BaseAttributeBean" scope="request" />
