Subject Re: XSP Validation XSP-formval
Date Thu, 19 Feb 2004 20:35:53 GMT
Hi Anna,

The spaces may be appearing because you have put spaces and newlines in 
the following:

 <input name="enddate" type="text" >
 <xsp:attribute name="value">
  <xsp-request:get-parameter name="enddate" default=""/>

To eliminate them, try reformatting and condensing what you have to:

 <input name="enddate" type="text" >
   <xsp:attribute name="value"><xsp-request:get-parameter name="enddate" 

Not 100% sure it'll fix your problem, but I've often has spaces crop up 
when trying to adhere to a "nice" format, and they usually disappear when 
I condense the XML.

Subject:        Re: XSP Validation XSP-formval

Never mind that worked. I am now able to validate my form. The problem is 
sitemap . The descriptor file could not be located. When I changed the 
it worked.

One other question. To refill the values in the form when there is some 
problem in the input. I am using the tags
 <input name="enddate" type="text" >
 <xsp:attribute name="value">
  <xsp-request:get-parameter name="enddate" default=""/>

Everytime I click submit and the same page is reloaded due to some errors 
see a couple of spaces added to the input text value at the beginning. The 

length of the text value is increasing. Did anyone see similar problem. 
help will be appreciated. How can I get rid of the spaces in front of my 
input text which are being created when I click on submit.

Thanks in advance,
