Sebastian commented on WW-2362:

I also agree with Al, I had good success using the "method" solution to determine wich button
was pressed.

>                 URL:
>             Project: Struts 2
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Documentation
>    Affects Versions: 2.0.11
>            Reporter: Sebastian
>             Fix For: Future
> In the "HTML form buttons HOWTO" tutorial, it is said that "When a button is pressed,
a parameter is set in the framework with the name and value that are specified as the name
and value attributes of your HTML button. The framework converts this automatically to boolean
value if an appropriate property of the Action is found."
> In Struts 2.0.11, this is not the case.
> The framework only converts to "true"  if the parameter is set to the String "true".
> So the only way to get the example of the tutorial work is to define the input tags like
> <input type="submit" name="buttonOnePressed" value="true"> 
> <input type="submit" name="buttonTwoPressed" value="true">
> This renders the example useless, as the value attribute defined the button text.
