javascript and Struts

Hi everybody,
i'm using struts and writing a javascript function that shows a confirmation message before deleting an element from a collection select:

function deleteElem() {
action = confirm("Delete selected element?");
if (action == true) {
else return;

I don't know how to indicate the action to do in the "if" statement with Struts.
How does Struts handle the formName.submit() = 'doSomething' inside a javascript?

Thanks in advance,

If all you need to accomplish is to confirm the user wants to delete an element, the following should suffice:

Alternately, if you have multiple submit buttons on your form and only want this action for a particular button, you can do this:

(on submit and on click should be onsubmit and onclick, the board doesn't like them)
At the end of the day, Struts is handling the server-side, javascript is handling the client-side, and the two never really meet.
