Hi All,

In my jsp i have some text which is being displayed with the help of <hutputtext> tag. i need to have a hyper link inside this value.

I am not finding any way how can i write tag inside .

My command link is as follows:

If anyone has any idea please share.

It doesn't work that way.

You have to put the outputText inside the commandLink element.

If you're looking for text where only part of the text is a hyperlink, use the following structure:

outputText (non-link text)
commandLink
- outputText (link text)
outputText (non-link text)

If the text is in a panelGrid, you can use the panelGroup element as their parent so that the 3 components don't end up in different cells.

Hello Tim,

thanks for your reply.

I am trying like :

outputText (non-link text)
commandLink
- outputText (link text)

but they are coming in different cells.
Could you please tell me more about "panelGroup element as parent" so that they come in same line/cell.

Thanks.

just wrap an "h:panelGroup" element around the outputText/commandLink elements:

panelGrid
- panelGroup
- - outputText
- - commmmandLink
- - - outputText
- - outputText
- (next grid cell element)
