How to use webwork property in velocity file


I want to move statements from a jsp-file to a velocity-file.

In this case, I try to move a webwork property into a velocity statement:

var returnUrl = "<ww:property value="returnUrl" />";

Hi Andi,

thanks a lot.

In this case, it was part of a java script inside the velocity file and so it also works like this:

var returnUrl = "$returnUrl";

Best Regards


Well, assuming you have control over the velocity context, defining a value in velocity is like:

#set ( $returnUrl = "http://bla/theurl" )

Then, to use, just $returnUrl is needed.

Usually, you can access the driving action with $action.getXxxx() for accessing more complex data /logic.
