hi...

i have multiple buttons in a jsp page ..
consider a department page where i have 3 textboxes---
1- dept number
2-dept name
3-dept location

below these i have 7 buttons---
1)next
2)previous
3)last
4)add
5)edit
6)delete
7)save

when i click on the button how do i get results on the same page...
for eg- if i press "next" the record next to the present record should appear in the textboxes.... likewise when i press "previous" the previous record should appear in the textboxes....

wat concept should i use??

thank u for replyin...

any other method apart from ajax...???

i dont know much so my questions may sound a bit crazy to u...

can we use events in jsp???

jsp runs on the server, the browser runs on the client. You need network communication. AJAX (or write the necessary JavaScript yourself).

Edit: Of course, you can always just submit the form.

No. I am not just typing in order to watch the letters assemble across the screen.
