Problem on Loading Page
Posted on 2004-10-18
I have one simple question. First, I am developing intranet application using JSP, Struts and ORACLE. Well, the question is not about Java or JSP but about HTML programming.
I have a form where it contains two comboboxes and many textboxes; the page itself can be scrolled because so many components there. Well, the second combobox's value depends on the first combobox. So after I do select the value in the first combobox, the second combobox will automatically be loaded with some value based on the choice in the first combobox. To accomplish it, well, the page must be reloaded but of course with parameter at behind for some processing. It works great!
The question starts to come when the first combobox is in the middle of the page. After I select the value, it will reload the page as normal but the page loaded at the beginning of the form instead of back to the where the user chooses the combobox. What I want is after the page loaded, it will return the position to the first combobox and not beginning of the page (in the middle of the page). It lets the user to fill in the form easily.
