Problem with jsp page

Is there a way to invoke the validator and show the errors on the jsp page using spring bind errors tag ?.

I have multiple buttons on my form and i am getting the button value through JS. When the form is first load i am showing a text box and search button. So if the search is successfull then i am showing the rest of the form fields and have a Submit button. Now when a person clicks on Submit i would like to see if he has filled out all the form fields. If not then i would like to show the spring bind errors on the jsp page.

If i do this :-
<property name="validator" ref bean ="formValidator"/>
then the form does not work as it tries to validate all of the form fields. In my case i have those hidden and could be shown once the search is succesfful. Any input would be really helpful.

in your validator check if the button clicked was "search" if it was then just pass the validator..

Kuldeep unfortunately it is still the same problem. Actually i can see my validator gets invoked but instead of showing the message on the field it just reset the whole form and what i see is the first text field with the search button.

<c:if test = "${valid > 0}" >
then show the rest of the fields.
</c:if>

your validator will get invoked. What I meant was INSIDE your validator class check if the search button was clicked ( you can do that by adding the button in your form bean).
i.e. in your validator
if(!object.getCommand().equals("search")){do the validations)
.  ( I have assumed that the button id is "command")

It should make it work ( i.e. it will call the validator but your validater will pass without checking if the button was "search").
