Class Submit

  • All Implemented Interfaces:

    @Events("selected by default, may be overridden")
    public class Submit
    extends java.lang.Object
    implements ClientElement
    Corresponds to <input type="submit"> or <input type="image">, a client-side element that can force the enclosing form to submit. The submit responsible for the form submission will post a notification that allows the application to know that it was the responsible entity. The notification is named selected, by default, and has no context.
    Component Parameters 
    NameTypeFlagsDefaultDefault Prefix
    classStringSince 5.4message:private-core-components.submit.classliteral
    CSS class for the element.
    contextObject[]Since prop
    The list of values that will be made available to event handler method of this component when the form is submitted.
    deferboolean  prop
    If true (the default), then any notification sent by the component will be deferred until the end of the form submission (this is usually desirable). In general, this can be left as the default except when the Submit component is rendering inside a Loop, in which case defer should be bound to false (otherwise, the event context will always be the final value of the Loop).
    disabledboolean falseprop
    If true, then the field will render out with a disabled attribute (to turn off client-side behavior). When the form is submitted, the bound value is evaluated again and, if true, the field's value is ignored (not even validated) and the component's events are not fired.
    eventStringNot Null literal
    The name of the event that will be triggered if this component is the cause of the form submission. The default is EventConstants#SELECTED.
    imageorg.apache.tapestry5.AssetSince asset
    If provided, the component renders an input tag with type "image". Otherwise "submit".
    modeorg.apache.tapestry5.corelib.SubmitModeNot Null literal
    Defines the mode, or client-side behavior, for the submit. The default is SubmitMode#NORMAL; clicking the button submits the form with validation. SubmitMode#CANCEL indicates the form should be submitted as a cancel, with no client-side validation. SubmitMode#UNCONDITIONAL bypasses client-side validation, but does not indicate that the form was cancelled.

    Component Events 
    selectedby default, may be overridden


    The thing to remember is that the Submit component will trigger its "selected" event in the middle of the form submission, before the form triggers its "validate", "success" (or "failure") and "submit" events. Thus the best thing to do is to store in a temporary field what should be done inside the "success" event handler.


    <html xmlns:t="">
            <h1>Edit User</h1>
                <t:beaneditor t:id="user"/>
                    <input type="submit" value="Update User"/>
                    <t:submit t:id="delete" value="Delete User"/>

    public class EditUser
        private UserDAO userDAO;
        private User user;
        private boolean deleteUser;
        void onSelectedFromDelete() { deleteUser = true; }
        Object onSuccess()
            if (deleteUser)
            return UserList.class;
