Hi all
I am adding the following script at the end of my JSP to add a hidden field but it dosent work unless i add an alert statment before appending the new element, dose anyone have any explanation of this strange behavior?

String transactionNo =request.getParameter("transactionNo");
System.out.println("PSS At error footer jsp -----" + transactionNo);
<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
var inputFeild = document.createElement("input");
inputFeild.type = "hidden"; = "transactionNo";
inputFeild.value = "<%=transactionNo%>";
var formsCollection = document.getElementsByTagName('form');
// i i add alert here, it works!!!!
for(var i=0;i<formsCollection.length;i++){

    I know I told you to pick the right forum for a question, but you are not making things easier by running two threads with exactly the same question. Do it the next time you have a question.

    No, and I'm afraid that this is a javascript question, not a JSP or Java question. I predict that this thread (and your duplicate one on the JSP forum) are going to be locked very soon. To get better help, find a javascript forum.
