Hi,

I am using JQuery with Struts 1.1. I am using following code when user
clicks on Save button:


$('#save').click(function() {
$.blockUI({ message: "Please wait..." });


$.ajax({
url: '/saveData.do?dispatch=save',
type:'post',
cache: false,
dataType:'xml',
complete: function() {
$.unblockUI();
}
});

In my struts code,

<html:form action="/saveTemplate.htm?dispatch=save" method="POST">
<div id="firstchildcontainer">
Name: <html:text property="templateName"/>
Description: <html:textarea property="description" rows="8"
cols="10"/>
<html:submit styleId="save"><bean:message key="button.save"/></
html:submit>
<html:cancel styleId="cancel"><bean:message key="button.cancel"/></
html:cancel>
</div>
</html:form>


The problem here is it is submitting request twice because it is
defined with struts form and with url (in ajax). How can I avoid
duplicate request?


Thanks,
Bhavin

This is a JavaScript question, not Struts.

You need to return false from your JavaScript handler to prevent the default click handler from running after the Ajax request.

Thanks. I tried "return false;" at end of ajax call and it submits one request but it does not populate form fields in actionForm.

can anyone give example of Jquery + Struts 1?

Thanks,
Bhavin
