For more details & some code search the archive at for:- chainToPage - something I wrote & mean to refine one day. No tags - controlled from inside the action class. It works fine for me. It's designed for swapping between lists of data & maintenance programs but will work for anything including what you want. > bad, routing outside of struts-config.xml) For this not so - you must define an Action for your dialog box which has a forward for every action that it returns to - which I think is very good. returnstamp - By a guy called tuomo - a more experienced programmer than me - this uses a tag & is controlled from the jsp. There is also lots of stuff about workflow (search for that) but I've not looked into it. My requirements aren't that sophisticated. The linking to pages like this is so commom - other people must have solutions, can some of the real experts who have written lots of systems tell us what the best solution is? Some people think it should be controlled from the jsp - I prefer from the action class using forwards defined for it - I think my one fits neatly with the existing struts design - it's 'lean' solution - works & contains very little code. Does take a bit of code to use it. Sorry I can't give you a more definitive answer - Keith. PS do share your sloution if you sort something out. --- Andreas Mack wrote: > On Fri, 2002-02-15 at 02:19, Ted Husted wrote: > > I have a question along these lines: > Quite often I have thing like an acknowledge page, very much > like an Ok Dialog: "The password has been changed successfully. > OK".
