I have an app that has multipla page tabs. One of the tabs has a form that does a search. The issue I am running is that when I do a search on the form, and then go to a different tab, and then come back, it does the search again. How can I make it so that when I switch tabs and come back that the form is in its default state.

Thanks much for the help.

  • I've met a same situation what i did was i found the # of the tab and altered the form submit respectively . May be there is a better way.

Include the following within the submit button tag:

onclick="return false"
  • This will not at all allow the form to submit. he is asking about preventing the submission on particular situation. Nov 26, 2012 at 5:09
  • @Mathankumar OP not asking about preventing the submission on particular situation, read again.
