Hi,

I have single portlet which has five pages, which on a page in the portal.
This portlet which has 5 pages has "back" and "next" button.

How this can be done?

This is how i am thinking it would work


I will have 2 submit buttons, and when particular button click is clicked i would set one hidden value with onclick and collect them in processAction and control the navigation.

Just want to know if anyone has tried this

Thanks

This will work. You better create a renderURL, because other than forwarding requests to JSP, this portlet would do no processing. In the doView() method you can create a if-else or switch hierarchy and depending on the flag forward the request to the respective JSP

Also, ensure that you set the flag value in the session and depending on the button click, keep manipulating it. I suggest make this flag a counter and the count may map to the page number (1-5).
