Newbie no validation on Cancel button click.

Ok I have a simple form with a Cancel button on it. The name text field
is a required field. However I don't want to check for validation when I click
the Cancel button.

What do I need to do?

add attribute immediate="true" to your cancel button

Excellent. Thanks John. immediate="true" worked for my back button where I did not want any validations/messages.
