This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide 1Z0-808 and have Jeanne Boyarsky & Scott Selikoff on-line! See this thread for details.
I have a form that has several submit buttons, each with a different name. My JSP code uses the name to figure out how to process the forms. The forms basically allow the user to page through a list of data.
On each form, I have a textbox associated with a submit button that allows the user to jump to a specific page in the data, the page is specified by the value entered in the text box.
My users want to enter the page number in the text field and then hit the Enter key to submit it. I've found out how to capture the key press and see that it is the enter key that was pressed (keyPress == 13...).
If its the enter key, I can call submit, but is there then a way to fool the application into thinking that the corresponding submit button was pressed? Is there a way to set a request paramater associated with the submit action?
