passing form values

passing form values

passing form values

hi all,
  i got a jsp page with a check box in it.  how can i check whether it is checked or not in another jsp page?

RE: passing form values


use a "name" attribute in your html check box tag.
assign it a value.

then you can retrieve the value of the check box field using the "request" implicit variable.

ex :

jsp 1

<html-tag-for-a-check-box name="mycheckbox"> </...>

jsp 2

    if( request.getParameter("mycheckbox").equals("???") {

        // do something

    else {

        // do other thing


RE: passing form values

Checkboxes submit a value only when they are checked.


if (request.getParameter("cbox") != null && !request.getParameter("cbox").trim().equals("")) {

   /* Checkbox is checked */

else {

   /* Checkbox is not checked */


Hope that helps.
