Subject RE: NEWBIE: how to submit a named html:form via javascript
Date Fri, 25 Jun 2004 21:30:58 GMT
Thanks Jim,


If I understand you correctly, if I have this config in struts-config:

<action path="/help" name="helpActionForm" scope="request"
type="com.expensys.expensyswt.struts.action.DisplayHelp" />

Then I can use "javascript:document.helpActionForm.submit()" in the jsp file
to submit a form like this:

<html:form action="/help.do" method="POST">
....
</html:form>


Is my understanding correct?


TIA - Adam

The name is optional.  I never use it in the form.  For JavaScript porpoises
I use the name of the 
ActionForm your using in the struts config.
