Hi,

I have 2 jsp pages using same Form and same Action Class.
Page contains a list of values and on clicking any one of the list, goes to second page which is a tabbed page.

I am having a hidden variable pageDispatch in all the pages and on submit of any pages's form, I set the dispatch with that particular page's value.

I have my action form bean in session scope. The javascript I use to set the dispatch shows that the value is set(I used alerts). But when in the action, if I try to get that dispatch value, its showing the default value I set for it in the page. What am I missing?

Thanks

I guess your not submitting your form.

How r u setting the hidden property.
I set it using something like this:

document.forms['formName'].action.value = "edit";
formName.submit()
return true;

where action is the hidden form property.

I have two jsp pages in a tab structure. One of the pages in the tab works fine for the dispatch function. Only the other page is not working. I found out that not even any javascript is working in that page. Working on it.

Thank you all for your help.

Thilothama.
