Subject Re: [OT] Re: Passing value from Struts tag in JSP to Action class
Date Mon, 13 Aug 2007 14:18:51 GMT
No, I am not using any AJAX.

On Submit it supposed to process that row, go to DB and refresh the whole
so to come back on the same page.

Also, my form is declared as <html:form>, so onClick I use
"form.action=''", I can't get rid of it,
but it doesn't want to coexist with any Javascript.

I would not like to have multiple forms on one JSP page.

So which of your suggestions would you recommend in my case ?
And how do I get a value of rowId in Action class (notify action),
via request.getSession().getAttribute("rowId") ?

Thank you,
