I have created one form which contains one textbox which I created using aui:autocomplete .js (autocomplete is working here)and one search button.
when I click on search button,it will call some method().
How can I get the textbox value in that method.
Inside jsp

<aui:script use="aui-autocomplete">

var ipaddr = [
['' ],
[ '' ],
[ '' ],

new A.AutoComplete(
dataSource: ipaddr,
schema: {
resultFields: ['name']
matchKey: 'name',

typeAhead: true,
contentBox: '#IpAddress'


<portlet:actionURL name="searchByIp" var="searchByIpURL" windowState="normal" />

<aui:form action="<%=searchByIpURL %>" method="POST" name="fm">

<tr><td><div id="IpAddress" ></div></td>
<aui:button type="submit" name="display" value="Search by IpAddress" />

Now, how can I get this Ip address textbox value in searchByIp() method.
I tried to get the value as below,but it is giving null value.

inside SearchPortlet Class file.
public void searchByIp(ActionRequest request, ActionResponse response)
throws Exception {
String Ip = ParamUtil.getString(request,"ipAddr");
response.setRenderParameter("searchvalue", Ip);
sendRedirect(request, response);

Looking at your code, there's no <input> or <text> element within your form. Is the input element created by applying A.Autocomplete to #ipAddress?

Try changing
<tr><td><div id="IpAddress" ></div></td>

so that "ipAddress" is an input element, e.g.,
1<input id="ipAddress" name="ipAddress" type="text" />

If that does not solve your problem, use Firebug or similar to see which parameters are sent to your controller when pressing "Search by ipAddress".
