Subject RE: Validator using <A href> instead of <html:submit>
Date Mon, 07 Jul 2003 16:37:10 GMT
Sandeep,

The validateEnterAppInfo1(form) method gets called with the submit button
hardcode w/i the <html:form>.  

If I remove the validateEnterAppInfo1(this) call, no javascript validation
will take place, while the server-side validation still works.

There is always going to be only one form per page, so using
document.forms[0].submit() should be ok.

When this form pass validation the data is submitted.


This is part of the generated javascripts:

<script type="text/javascript" language="Javascript1.1"> 

<!-- Begin 

     var bCancel = false; 

    function validateEnterAppInfo1(form) {

        if (bCancel) 
      return true; 
        else 
       return validateRequired(form); 
   } 

    function required () { 
     this.aa = new Array("primAddrState", "Please select your state of
residence to continue.", new Function ("varName", " return
this[varName];"));
    } 

    function validateRequired(form) {
                var isValid = true;
                var focusField = null;
                var i = 0;
                var fields = new Array();
                oRequired = new required();
                for (x in oRequired) {
                	var field = form[oRequired[x][0]];
                	
                    if (field.type == 'text' ||
                        field.type == 'textarea' ||
                        field.type == 'file' ||
                        field.type == 'select-one' ||
                        field.type == 'radio' ||
                        field.type == 'password') {
                        
                        var value = '';
						// get field's value
						if (field.type ==
"select-one") {
							var si =
field.selectedIndex;
							if (si >= 0) {
								value =
field.options[si].value;
							}
						} else {
							value = field.value;
						}
                        
                        if (value == '') {
                        
	                        if (i == 0) {
	                            focusField = field;
	                        }
	                        fields[i++] = oRequired[x][1];
	                        isValid = false;
                        }
                    }
                }
                if (fields.length > 0) {
                   focusField.focus();
                   alert(fields.join('\n'));
                }
                return isValid;
            }

    function required () { 
       this.aa = new Array("primAddrState", "Please select your state of
residence to continue.", new Function ("varName", " return
this[varName];"));
    }

What is the javascript created by the custom tag when
looking at the source?

I think you shouldn't need to call:
validateEnterAppInfo1(this)

but what happens if you do?

maybe there is more than one form?  Is the form being
submitted and the data is in the form?

sorry I can't help any more than that.
