Multiple submit buttons

Hi,

How do i differentiate different submits tags / buttons on one form. Say
I want to create an edit form and I want to provide two buttons; one to
save and one to cancel. I would have:
<%= submit_tag ‘Ok’ %>
<%= submit_tag ‘Cancel’ %>
How do I know which button get pressed by the user?

One more thing, how to specify the default selection in a select tag
(drop-down list)?

Thanks,

Lantis.

Lantis,

Check @params[:commit].

Cheers,

Eddie

Often links are used for cancel. It’s simpler and links can be nested
inside
the form.

If you want to use buttons for non-remote forms, you just need to give
them
different name/id so your controller can distinguish them. If you want
to
use buttons in remote_forms, you need to hack something with hidden
fields,
because prototype serializes only one submit button.
