Subject RE: <html:link> instead of <html:submit>
Date Fri, 13 Feb 2004 14:56:32 GMT
Paul, I have also been trying to use a submit within a html-el:link (using
Struts). I've been trying in different ways, none of which worked, and I am
exhausted after several days of continously surfing the net and trying.
I am not a Struts specialist, we are on our first project here.

  Could you  please include an example of your code?
   Does it work with Struts html:link tag ?
   (Even if it is not using Struts tag, I may try to go that way....)
  Do we have to have a dispatch Action, can't we have  anormal action there:

  Here is my code (which does not work...):  (Struts 1.1, Weblogic 8.1)

===========Extas from my jsp code: ============================
 <html-el:form action="prep_address_book">

    <logic-el:iterate id="crtParticipant" indexId="idx" name="genForm"

  	<html-el:link  styleClass="ListDetails"
page="/action/edit_address_book_participant" indexed="true" 
				indexId="current_index" name="genForm" 
                  	onClick="document.genForm.submit();" >   
                  <bean:write name="crtParticipant"

======= Struts config: =================================

//the current form whic contains the link
   <action path="/prep_address_book" scope="request" name="genForm"
    <forward name="success" path="/AddressBook.jsp" />
    <forward name="edit_address_book_participant" path="/AddParticipant.jsp"
    <forward name="error" path="/LeftNav.jsp" redirect="false" />

  <action path="/edit_address_book_participant" scope="request"
name="genForm" redirect="false"
    <forward name="success" path="/AddParticipant.jsp" />
    <forward name="back_to_address_book" path="/action/prep_address_book" />
    <forward name="error" path="/LeftNav.jsp" redirect="false" />

  in submit(), the "genForm" is the name of the form associated with the
current page (that contains the html-el:link).
  The current behavior (of the above code)is :
    - I have a page which displays participants (in a logic:iterate);
    -For every participant it displays a a row with some info (FirstName,
LastNAme etc)
    -The LAST NAME is displayed as a link, and when clicking on the link:
		-it goes to the action specified in the "page" property
(which works OK), 
		- it forwards the map with the values of the participant
associated with the current row (whose link was clicked). which works OK.
		- However, with the previous code, when I get to my new
ACtion (associated with page="/action/edit_address_book_participant", the
form I receive is empty (previous page is not submited) . I only get the map
of vales from the link).   

         Is it possible to have a "submit" type of behaviour such that:
		- when I get to my new page, I not only have the map
forwarded by the "property" of the <html:link>, 
		- but I also get the entire previous form 

        (I would need to have all the participant rows, not just the one
clicked - because I do not want to loose the info (the other rows) and
either go to the back end to fetch them again, or store them in the
session). A "submit" type behavior would give me the entire form, plus the
map provided by the link functionality.(current row data) 
  Is this possible in Struts ? How does  <html-el:link>  tag interact with
onclick property?
  MAybe the syntax for the onclick is wrong ? Any examples please...

  Thank you very much for reading this long message!

I don't beleve this will submit the values in the form's input fields. I've
achieved this functionality by having links which use javascript to set the
dispatch form value & call submit.
