Hi ,

Currently I am working on Struts.
I am working on a pagination code.
I have two hidden fields in my form namely 'next' and 'prev'.
I also have a <input type="image"> (for 'Next' and 'Prev'), on the click of which i set either of the two hidden fields to a value.
ON the server side, i check these values from request and take appropriate action.

The problem -
I click on the 'Next' image, and get appropriate action done. I get the expected output
page. Now if i press 'F5' or Refresh on the browser, on the server side the code written for
'Next' gets executed and instead of reloading the same page, it gives me the next expected page which is wrong. How do i stop this from happening ?

Thanks in advance...

Regards,
Janarthan S

Have you tried setting the redirect property on the ActionMapping for prev and next to "true"?

i'd include another "index" hidden field just to ensure that everytime it executes a "next" command, it
starts off from this current index(of a list i suppose). (it is supposed to resubmit when you hit f5 anyway) so at least
it will keep on showing the same page. just like in google or other sites where you can see a start=x form element when you hit next

But you can get around this, by having the FormAction redirecting to the ViewAction...

then, refresh will just refresh the view, not resubmit data

I am having a try with http://jsptags.com/tags/navigation/pager/index.jsp link that you gave. It looked like worth a shot.

Thanks again !!!
