Assign value to html table element attribute with value from scriptlet

Hello

I would like to set the class and id attributes of the <td> element that is being populated in the scriptlet below

columns is a list of column names

This could contain strings such as accountno, name

history is a data bean

<td>
	<%
	methodName = columns.getId();
	out.println(history.getColumnValue(methodName));
	%>
</td>

Open in new window


Best regards and thanks

Hi sorry i should have said that the scriptlet is inside a jsp page and the scriptlet language is java

I could not see the wood for the trees and then realised that i can use this

<td class="<%=columns.getId()%>" id="<%=columns.getId()%>">
