I have  a form that needs multiple buttons.  So far, I've been using one button for <submit>

  if button A is pushed then:  <input type="hidden" name="myVar" value="valueA">
  if button B is pushed then:  <input type="hidden" name="myVar" value="valueA">

<form action="/myAction">

     <html:submit property="action">SUBMIT</html:submit>

</form>

It needs to look like I have 2 submit buttons.  How do I do this?

You second button should set "valueB" not "valueA" I suppose.

Write two Javascript functions, one for each return value. Each function would set the appropriate return value.

For your first submit button, invoke the first Javascript. For the second submit button, invoke the second Javascript.

WOW!  I need some real help then.  Appologies for my frustration.  My post is a result of abandoning that type of solution.

I had tried something like that.  (code below)  It does JACK.    I can't debug it.  I can't make it print anything anywhere!!?? to see why the heck it won't work.    

I was hoping I might be able to do some simple tag-like solution.

If you can help with this one, I would be VERY thankful.
