HI Ranchers,

I have an javascript function in a jsp file

function encodeTxt(s){
............
.........

}

I want to assign the return value of this function to a java variable.
How is it possible.

I have one method but dont know how efficient it would be,
I try assigning return value of a js function to a form object say textbox and then use request.getParameter to retrieve the value in java.

Thanks & Regards,
Hashmukh

That is the correct way to do it.

Remember, Javascript and HTML are both interpreted on the client's machine after all of the JSP code has already been run on the server.
The two do not ever directly interact.
