I have a message, in a variable selectedMessage, and in the object, I have a message type coming from the DB, which is a String value, for example, OPERATIONAL . So, now, I want to translate this value to another language, so I have the labels in the file, as:


Is there any way to load that value?

I've tried several things, but non worked... like:

<label value="${ c:cat('labels.app.user.messages.type.', vmApp.selectedMessage.msgType) }"/>

<label value="${ c:l(c:cat('labels.app.user.messages.type.', vmApp.selectedMessage.msgType)) }"/>

<label value="@load(c:l(c:cat('labels.app.user.messages.type.', vmApp.selectedMessage.msgType)) )"/>

Thanks in advance

how about using the labels variable. Since it represents the labels as nested maps you can access properties dynamically using the square brackets labels.app[propertyExpression] and an expression resulting in a string (indirect reference):

<label value="@load(labels.app.user.messages.type[vmApp.selectedMessage.msgType])"/>

or if reused more often on a page you can use @ref to make it more readable and improve performance (PE/EE only):

<div msgLabels="@ref(labels.app.user.messages)" selMsg="@ref(vmApp.selectedMessage)">
    <label value="@load(msgLabels.type[selMsg.msgType])"/>
    <label value="@load(msgLabels.status[selMsg.msgStatus])"/>
    <label value="@load(msgLabels.somethingElse[selMsg.msgSomethingElse])"/>

Well, I finally found a way, so I'm gonna reply my own question.

Here it is, as the last example not working that I provided, when you use the l taglib, you don't need the labels. part

<label value="@load(c:l(c:cat('app.user.messages.type.', vmApp.selectedMessage.msgType)) )"/>
