<html:submit> vs. javascript submit

<html:submit> vs. javascript submit

<html:submit> vs. javascript submit

Is there any difference between clickling <html:submit>
and calling document.formstruts.submit(), assuming the latter
is the same button?

when i click the <html:submit> button directly, my validate() function in ActionForm class is being run. However, when I called the javascript submit(), it skips the validations.

Are there things i need to set up to get this validate() to fire using the javascript submit()?

RE: <html:submit> vs. javascript submit

It should still run the validate() function in whatever way the form is submitted.  What is your code in validate() function?

RE: <html:submit> vs. javascript submit

watch out cause i think the submit() method does not call the onSubmit() from the page, so if u have something like <form... onSubmit(), u have to call it manually
