Hi,

 I have a user login form. When no user or password enters it validates and prints the error "enter username or password" perfectly. But the problem is this error message remains on the screen all the time when I navigate to other pages and comeback to login page again.
I want it to dissappear when I navigate to other page and comeback to the login page again.

please help

thanks

The application server used is ATG Dynamo. The technology used for front end is jhtml and backend java and oracle.

When submit button is clicked with out entering any values for username and password then error message is displayed on top of the page as required.

When I navigate from this login page to some other page and come back to login again, the error message still exists on the top of the page. This remains even if I refresh the browser!!! I dont know why this error mesage doesnot disappear when I refresh or navigate from other page!!


thanks

I am afraid I can not post the complete code here, cos it is very lengthy.
This is code for checking login properties

public void handleLoginRequiredProperties(DynamoHttpServletRequest pRequest, DynamoHttpServletResponse pResponse) throws ServletException, IOException {

        boolean userExists = true;
                             
        if(!validInputField(getBenutzer()) && isPropertyRequired(PROPERTY_NAME_USER)) {
            addFormException(new DropletException(getFormatter().formatMessage(MSG_MISSING_USER)));
        }
        else {
            try {
                if(!userAlreadyExists(getUser(), null, pRequest, null)) {
                    userExists = false;                              
                    addFormException(new DropletException(getFormatter().formatMessage(MSG_USER_NOT_EXISTS)));
                }
            }
            catch(RepositoryException rExc) {
                logError(rExc);
                addFormException(new DropletException(getFormatter().formatMessage(MSG_ERR_PROFILE_REPOSITORY)));
            }
        }
        if(userExists && !validInputField(getPassword()) && isPropertyRequired(PROPERTY_NAME_PASSWORD)) {
            addFormException(new DropletException(getFormatter().formatMessage(MSG_MISSING_PASSWORD)));
        }
    }

I thought you wrote it in J2EE.
I am not familiar with these classes.
Sorry.

johnson100,
I am afraid that you have a bug, that without thourough investigation of your code will be impossible to find.
Somehow, somewhere, your code writes the error message to the screen, and does not reset it.

try to reset the error to blanks BEFORE checking for error.
possibly something along the lines of
addFormException(new DropletException(getFormatter().formatMessage(BLANK_MESSAGE)));
