How to send multiple actions to Action class after disabling JavaScript

Hi,

I have 3 actions (Buttons) in my screen. I have a requirement that we still need to send the request to Action class even after Javascript is disabled

Currently i am doing the following

<html:form method="post" action="a.do">



<%-- Now i have 2 more Buttons --%>
<html:reset value="Reset" ..... onclick = "javascript:clear(form) "/>
<html:submit value="Submit" ..... onclick = "javascript:submitAction()"/>
</html:form>

if the JavaScript is disabled, both the buttons will not work. I want to send them in "action" attribute it self. How do i do that? Can someone help me?

Thanks,
Raj

What do you mean by "them" and "action"?
I think you could do submit without JavaScript?

If you want to check if JavaScript is enabled/disabled in JSP there is one idea:
Put hidden field with value="false". You can name it javaScriptEnabled. Now, write some JavaScript function and try to change the value of this hidden field to "true".
If JavaScript is enabled it will work and change value to true, if not - value remains as false. I think you could put it on your initial jsp or somewhere before this jsp - then you could for example put this value in session.

Mind, this should be tested first if it works like I think it is

 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
