Hi,

This problem is quite hard to explain since it is the first time that I have encountered it. Basically I am trying to have tile reference from pages that are loaded using tiles as well.

I have a default.jsp page that is used as a template by all other pages. This default.jsp page has the following XTML:



In the tiles-def.xml file I have the following settings for the default definition.



Now I have the home.jsp page. In the tiles-defs.xml file I set the definition for home as follows:



This works fine, and the home page is loaded using with the header at top and footer at bottom. However I tried adding the a tile definition in the home page as follows:



I would expect that on the home page I get the title printed as well. However instead I get the following exception on screen:



Why is this happening? I do have the �title� attribute defined! Then why doesn�t it want to work?

Thanks for any comments,
Regards,
Sim085

hi,

tiles does have an individual scope (tiles-scope). that means that you are unable to access attributes from inside a nested scope unless you save them explicitly.

take a look at the answer i gave in this thread, that's pretty much the constellation you need as well.

there is an "advanced tiles" pdf available which explains those details, should you be more interested...

:-)

hope it helps,
jan
