How to get the values from the form rendered via Java Servlet?

Hi Guys,

I am trying to get the values from the form loaded via Java Servlet using form background submission.

For that, I am using form background submission, but it shows the error as below: 

Cannot read property 'querySelector' of null at this line:

‍‍customFormButton = customForm.querySelector("input[type='button']");

I have tried the code below and its working fine with the form loaded without Java Servlet. I think it's because the script is not able to find this element?  

I don't know much about java but I think the issue is only with the form loaded from Java. (Please correct me if I am wrong.)

The code I am using is here:

MktoForms2.loadForm("//app-lon1x.marketo.com", "455-xxx-5xx", 1xxx);

document.addEventListener("DOMContentLoaded", function(event) {


var customForm = document.querySelector("#commandDEsk2_form"),

customFormButton = customForm.querySelector("input[type='button']");

if (customFormButton!= null) {

customFormButton.addEventListener("click",function(customFormSubmitEvent){
customFormSubmitEvent.preventDefault();
customFormButton.disabled = true;

MktoForms2.whenReady(function(mktoForm) {

mktoForm.addHiddenFields({


"Salutation": customForm.querySelector("#mwf8322014b47ad_Frau:checked").value,
"FirstName": customForm.querySelector("#mwfca1d8fb14840").value,
"LastName": customForm.querySelector("#mwf2e0f8bf4c5a5").value,
"DateofBirth": customForm.querySelector("#mwfb367fa18f4b6").value,
"Email": customForm.querySelector("#mwf3723fced2f65").value,

"contactPreference": customForm.querySelector("#mwf3a560d8fb35e_E-Mail:checked").value,
"contactPreference": customForm.querySelector("#mwf3a560d8fb35e_Anrufen:checked").value,

"contactPreferredTime": customForm.querySelector("#mwfe5cfddec289c").value,
"Phone": customForm.querySelector("#mwf49493b78f207").value,
"askedQuestion": customForm.querySelector("#mwf31f8c09fd40e").value,

"datenverarbeitung": customForm.querySelector("#mwfff89d0f5aae6_ja").value,
"productUpdate": customForm.querySelector("#mwf30b1f1052d95_ja").value,

});

mktoForm.submit();
});
});
}

});

And once the form loaded via servlet it has the code like this:

<form id="commandDEsk2_form" class="webtrekkHelper_configs eineSeite" data-mwf-target="/formulare/servlet/form?_uid=DEsk2_form&amp;lang=de_DE&amp;_view=webform" data-mwf-id="DEsk2_form" action="/formulare/servlet/form" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data" accept-charset="utf-8" onsubmit="return false;">

Re: How to get the values from the form rendered via Java Servlet?

Hi Ankit,

I guess the issue is with following lines:

 var customForm = document.querySelector("#commandDEsk2_form"),
customFormButton = customForm.querySelector("input[type='button']");

can you try instead:

var customForm,customFormButton ;
customForm= document.querySelector("#commandDEsk2_form");
customFormButton = customForm.querySelector("input[type='button']");

Let me know if this works.

Re: How to get the values from the form rendered via Java Servlet?

Hi Amit,

 

I have tried that too. Not working. But do you think it has something to do with position of the script? But I have also used

.addEventListener("DOMContentLoaded"). Not sure.

 

Thanks!

Re: How to get the values from the form rendered via Java Servlet?

Those lines of JavaScript have exactly the same meaning, Amit.

Re: How to get the values from the form rendered via Java Servlet?

If the <form> element with id="commandDEsk2_form" is not rendered synchronously (as part of the initial DOM) then waiting for DOMContentLoaded cannot work.

If that <form> is injected asynchronously into the page (i.e. a script injects the form markup) then you have to use that script's event model to capture when it's ready. This is exactly the same as with Marketo forms, which offer the custom whenReady event because you can't rely on default browser events.

If you provide a link to your page I might be able to see if there's an event being fired.
