I want to call a method in the java class from the OnClick event on an inputtext. Is this possible.
Actual task is - to clear the value in the textbox onClick. If I use the script ----- onclick="this.value=''; ----- the value at the client page gets cleared but server side value in the java class stays. I want to clear the value in the java class variable as well.
Please let me know if this can be done.
Not possible to do, with any set method.
What you could do is:
The server side component then calls the method on the class.
When form is submitted to servlet, your input parameter is null. So in servlet you can check a simple condition and set its mataching class data member to null.
Is that correct or i didnt understand your post correctly.
