// Tag snippet

JSP call:


Error message that is created:
Unable to convert string '<%=categoryData%>' to class
com.harland.datatypes.hCategories for attribute categories:
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Property Editor not registered with the
PropertyEditorManager
Using Tomcat 4.1.18
First can I do this? Then if I can how do I pass the hCategories object?
Thanks,
Jeff Born

Have you set the <rtexprvalue> of the category attribute (in the TLD file) to true? This should do the trick.
