submit values incorrect in internet explorer

Hi

I have create a jsp page with 2 submit buttons: here is the code.

<s:submit type = "button" label="Add Club" name =
"submit" value= "addClub">
</s:submit>
<s:submit type = "button" label="Search" name =
"submit" value = "searchClub">
</s:submit>

Now in firefox, if the Add Club button is pressed, the property submit in my action is correctly set to addClub.
However, in IE if the Add Club button is pressed, the value of submit is "addClub, searchClub".

Is there any way around this problem. I know that I could use 2 separate properties for the buttons.

I'd suggest using a property name other than "submit" such as "submitAction" or something like that. The reason for this is that "submit" has meaning in javaScript, and Struts tags sometimes use JavaScript behind the scenes. This may be what's causing problems in IE.

Hi Merril

Thanks for the suggestion but unfortunately this still did not work. For some reason IE passes the label names of both buttons to the action. So with my label names Add club and search, I receive the string "Add club, search" in my action. I think this has something to do with the struts tag s:submit.
I guess I will have to use the html submit then.
