Hello,

New to jsp, so please bear with me. I have a .jsp which shows 100 rows of text. Each row of text has a checkbox (for the user to select) on the left. After the user has selected a particular row, he/she has to scroll all the way to the bottom (after the 100th row) to hit the 'Submit' button. I would like to encapsulate the 'submit' button inside a top frame (as well as having the Submit button at the bottom of the page), so no matter which row the user has selected, the submit button is always there at the top. Any ideas how the jsp page & it's frame should be constructed?

Many thanks
-A

In your top frame, let say your, you can try this:

<input type="button" name="Button" value="Button" onclick="javascript:parent.mainFrame.form1.submit();">

where your frames structure will be like:

<frameset rows="169,*" frameborder="NO" border="2" framespacing="2" cols="*">
  <frame name="topFrame" scrolling="NO" noresize src="top.jsp" >
  <frame name="mainFrame" src="down.jsp" frameborder="NO">
</frameset>

Hope this helps

if you are prepard to have a button for each row then you can write a small script to submit the form, this allows the user to make sure he has selected the right row to submit.


<form name = someform method = post action = ../servlet/go>
<input type = hidden name = "thValue" value = "">
</form>

<table>
<tr>
<td> <input type  = checkbox  name = "somename"  value = "100"> 100th row </td>
</td> <input type = button onclick:javascript:submitValue(100)> </td> </tr>
<tr>
<td> <input type  = checkbox  name = "somename"  value = "101"> 101th row </td>
</td> <input type = button onclick:javascript:submitValue(101)> </td> </tr>
</table>

<script>
function submitValue(value)
{
document.someform.thValue = value;
document.form.submit;
}
</script>

Hi alefebvre.

I believe both of the above answer are perfect, but I will make you consider that you use a <DIV> with scrollbars wich will prevent the page being too large and the you can place your submit button rigt below the </DIV> so it will be alway visible and ready to be pushed, is just a matter of style.

If you need help with it just ask.

Have Fun
