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.
