Subject Re: How to repopulate Form which has html elements with same name
Date Thu, 05 Jun 2003 15:15:39 GMT
doesn't the form do this automatically?  if validation fails, i think  
the standard behavior is to return the user to the page just as they  
left it -- preferably with the appropriate error message....i know  
there are multiple ways to do the validation (and i'm not using the  
best way), but one way is to have a method like the one below in you  
form bean.  If any of the following conditions are met, the user is  
returned to the page with the form populated.

Hope this helps.

    public ActionErrors validate(ActionMapping mapping,  
HttpServletRequest request) {
         ActionErrors errors = new ActionErrors();
         if (this.isBlankString(oldpassword)) {
             errors.add("oldpassword",new  
ActionError("error.required.oldpassword"));
         }

         if (this.isBlankString(newpassword1)) {
             errors.add("newpassword1", new  
ActionError("error.required.newpassword1"));
         }

         if (this.isBlankString(newpassword2)) {
             errors.add("newpassword2", new  
ActionError("error.required.newpassword2"));
         }

         // Test to see if the new passwords are the same.
         if (!newpassword1.equals(newpassword2)) {
             errors.add("newpassword1", new  
ActionError("error.passwordmatch"));
         }


         return errors;
     }
