Javascript to Submit the Value of a Text Field

I am getting into deep trouble.

My link is defined inside a form. Everything is tested without problem except that the link does not pick up the value of a text field that is also defined inside the form. Although the link does pick up fixed values and they are submitted.

Therefore, I have to use Javascript to submit the value of a textfield when the link is clicked.

Moreover to my problem. I have several text fields in the form. A client may or may not enter a value in any one of those text fields. But, all the entered values must be submitted when the link is clicked.
Please help me.

Check whether the value is assigned to text field properly.

You mean to say that text field value is not being sent to server on form submit ?

I mean that the value of the text field is not sent by clicking on the "link". The "link" invokes an action.

Both the text field and the link are inside a pair of "form" tag.

Please, I need a Javascript.

Please post the HTML of the form, field and link in question.

Note: post the rendered HTML, not the JSP source full of struts tags.

You're probably not forming the URL correctly to pass the value.
