MVC data binding dynamically

Hi Friends,

I have a requirement in one of my MVC views. I have an <htmlb:inputField> and i want to associate it to my Model class attribute dynamically i.e. i have the fully typed model attribute in a string and i wish to assign it to the inputField's value. But, my efforts are in vain.

Here's my code:

<% concatenate '//model/structure.' tmp into substr. %>

<htmlb:inputField id = "<%= tmp %>"

value = "<%= substr %>" />

The 'tmp' has the name of the structure component in it. The code gets compiled but when i run it the inputField has the whole model string (substr) as text inside the input box and is not actually getting binded with the model. How can we dynamically do this ?

Please help.

    System will consider '//model/structure.' as the value. no way it can recogize this as the model binding. If you want to display the dynamically then you achieve as follows:

    <% substr = model->structure-field1. %>
    <htmlb:inputField id = "<%= tmp %>"
    value = "<%= substr %>" />

    This way, the substr will display the value of model attribute.

      Thanks Thilo. Though not exactly the solution i needed, it surely guided me to find the right one.

      Raja/Patrick and Everyone,

      Luckily i found a relatively easy way to dynamically bind an htmlb element to a model attribute. Below code snippet says it all:

      <% data: input type ref to cl_htmlb_inputField,

      input_string type string.

      create object input.

      input->id = tmp.

      input->_value = '//model/structure.field'.

      input_string = input->if_bsp_bee~render_to_string( page_context ).


      <%= input_string %>

      By putting this code on the page layout, the htmlb:inputField is dynamically created and during this process the 'value' is binded to the string provided. Please go through the PDF file for more details:

      Thanks everyone,
