Set form property in jsp

Set form property in jsp

(OP)
Hello,
I have in jsp

CODE --> jsp

<input type="hidden" name="newCommand" value="myvalue"/>

<button type="button" onclick="start();">
<img src="images/common/button/play-button-th.png" alt="Start" />
</button>

<button type="button" onclick="stop();">
   <img src="images/common/button/pause-button-th.png" alt="Pause" />
</button>

<button type="button" onclick="pause();">
  <img src="images/common/button/stop-button-th.png" alt="Stop" />
</button> 

I want to set the "newCommand" property differently for each pressed button. For instance, start() would be like

CODE --> jsp

start()
{
 < ?? set newComamnd="START" >
 submit form
} 

How can i do that?

Thank you.

RE: Set form property in jsp

This more javascript than JSP, but here's my suggestion:

- Change the button type to submit
- In the onclick, change the newCommand value, that will be picked up server-side upon submission.

Cheers,
Dian
