    How to use hidden iframe


    by tllcll ·

    how to get the value selected by user (to be used in java – as a condition – for retrieving data from database) without submitting the form? I have many fields in that form and each each field required to check whether the data exist in the database and then retrieve other data fo be displayed in another field in the form.

    <%@page import="java.util.List.*;"%>

      nope, the iframe would be a completely separate url, so checking the form data in a different part of the page wouldn’t work.

      and your form checker won’t work for 50% of people, those that turn off java and javascript.

      it is really bad practice to use clientside scripting.

      Have you looked into using AJAX. I have not used it yet but it may be what you are looking for. There are numerous articles if you Google AJAX.
