How do I retrieve the name of the text box that is getting submitted in a form in JavaScript? There is only one button and one text box on the form, the name is made in real time so i cant preset it....

Use a hidden input and set its value to the name of the textbox at the same time you set the name itself.

Just make sure you provide ample fallback for non-Javascript browsers. This doesn't sound like a very unobtrusive method you're using here.

Im actually making a JSP pageJavascript and Java are two very different things. JSP pages do not rely on Javascript to work.
