Subject RE: How to set a Forms action value?
Date Mon, 02 Oct 2006 08:52:58 GMT
SOLVED

The URL is the same as the action value of the form.

My problem was due to me not setting a NameValuePair.

The NameValuePair concered does not have a value, it is...

NameValuePair thepart  = new NameValuePair("part" , "");

I presumed that because it was empty, that is was not used.

I was wrong.

Hi Roland, 

I've read this but and none the wiser.

I have the following in the web page...


<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="Javascript"
	function validateAndSubmit(frm)
	{
		frm.action="PartsForSupplier";
		frm.submit();
	}
</SCRIPT>
....
<form name="PartsForSupplierForm" method="post">
....
</form>


So as you can see the action parameter of the form is set in the
javascript.

The link you passed over states that the URL that is requested is the
target of the form. 

Using HTTP Analyzer, I can see the following, i.e the URL requested is
the same as the action set in the javascript.

----------------------------------------
POST /code/PartsForSupplier HTTP/1.1
Referer: https://web.bakert.com/code/PartsForSupplier
----------------------------------------

So....

My question is, is the action set on the form the same as the URL
requested?

In my HTTPClient code I post request the URL with the NameValuePairs
that are set in the form, but all I get back in the original search
page. i.e. 
the page with no results.

Can anyone help me out a bit here?

Thanks
Jeff porter

The action value of the form is the target URL for your POST request.
Have you taken a look at the primer?
