Hi,
I have a form "ModfyUserForm" with "Submit" button and a "Reset" button. The form is prepopulated depending on what user is selected from a dropdown list. When you edit a certain field in the form and before clikcing Submit you click Reset my previous data is loaded back in the form. But while modifying if any field(like emailaddress field) is empty I throw a Validation Error.
But after the Validation Error if I click the Reset button the old values are not retrieved and the form is not populated with the old data. Is there a way to make this...if could you please let me know.
Thanks in advance.
-Satish

Reset restores fields with the values they had when the page was originally loaded. When you come back with validation errors, the data that you validated now become the original values. The values that you had before validation are lost. The only way you can restore the values you really wanted would be to change your reset button to a submit button and pull the original values back into the form fields on the server side. That is, instead of
<html:reset />
you would have
<html:submit>Reset</html:submit>
