I have a page with two forms, The problem is when I press the bottom forms submit button, the top form is submitted but to the action in the bottom form. I have a formbean associated with the page and I think this is the cause, no matter what form I submit, it expects to submit an object of the type associated with the page, i.e. the form bean defined in struts.config. Anyone any ideas? thanks in advance
Form beans are associated with an Action via the name attribute in the action mapping in struts config. My guess is that you have a problem in the html:form tag or in the struts-config. In the html:form tag make sure that you have the correct action specified. Cross-check that against the struts-config action mapping and make sure the name attribute is correct. Then go to the form definition and make sure that the correct form class is specified.
Thanks you two, I had quadruple checked the struts config info against the form info but no luck. My mgr came to me this morning with a new design for the page layout again anyway and now the two forms are on diff pages so no prob! B.
