I am generating a JSP page with Dynamic fields in it.I am using the following code in JSP page


<c:forEach items="testitem" var="index">
  <html:text property='myProperty(${index})'/>
</c:forEach>

ActionForm Code to access the above property:

public class testForm extends ActionForm
{
  private HashMap hMap = new HashMap();

    public void setMyProperty(String key, Object value)  {
    this.hMap.put(key, value);
  }

  public Object getMyProperty(String key)   {
    return this.hMap.get(key);
  }

  }

I am trying to write the validation code in javascript but when i am trying to refer the dynamic fields by name

    document.myForm.myProperty("index1").value;

i am getting the error object does not support this property.I do not know how to access the dynamic fields in java script.
Can anybody please help me?

Thanks a lot
Anshu

document.myForm.myProperty("index1").value;
should be
document.myForm.index1.value;

After generating output check HTML in view souce .SO that you will correct name for text field.
  Also you can calculate count no which u can access in javascript so that u get to know how many text fields get generated. And u can validate these fields.

If the index is unique you can get this by
document.getElementById("index1").value;
but the HTML tag you are writing must contain id="index1"
e.g. <Input type="text" id="index1" />

I'm gonna assume that you're attempting to do dynamic validation without knowing what the id's of the form elements are?  What is "index1"?  Is it an id of an elment in your form?  There are a few suggestions I can make.  First of all it's important to note that not all elements have a value property.  If you really NEED to perform validation in this way you'll need to define clear validation rules for each of the element types you want to validate.  If this is what you want to do, then you'll need to get each element by type:

document.getElementsByTagName("input")

..will return all the <input> tags

document.getElementsByType("checkbox")

...will return an array of all the checkbox elements

document.getElementsByTagName("select")

...will return an array of all the select boxes in the document.

Hope this helps, but you may find it easier to just do validation in each page statically?
