Hi...

I have another problem. I have a form in which im using onChange function for a select box.
In the function im submitting the form by document.formname.submit();
The problem here is that the entire form is getting refreshed .
Is there a way that i can submit a form and still ensure that the previous values are not lost.

Please help me on this one.
Thanks in advance..
Payal

John,

JavaRanch is a community of people from all over the world, many of who are not native English speakers. While using abbreviations like "u" instead of spelling out "you" is convenient when text messaging your friends on a cell phone or in a chat room, it presents an extra challenge to those that are already struggling with English. Additionally, such shortcuts may confound automated translation tools that patrons of the Ranch may be making use of.

I would like to ask for your help in making the content of JavaRanch a little easier to read for everybody that visits here by not using such abbreviations.

thanks,
bear

Session variables may not be necessary.

I am assuming that the form is re-displayed after the processing servlet has completed whatever it is it's doing? If so, the request parameters submitted by the form are still on the request as parameters and can be put "back into" the form using the form element's value attribute.
