     I am running SiteFinity 5.3.  I have 2 MVC widgets that allow the user to enter search criteria to search for content on my site.  On my homepage I drag and drop the widgets on to the page.  So far so good.  2 search forms each with their own submit button.

    However, the controller for the second widget never gets called.  Regardless of which submit I click it is always the controller for the first form that gets called.

     I have tried changing the form name and action parameters in the Razor code in method @BeginFormSitefinity but these seem to be ignored.

    It looks like some clever JavaScript dynamically changes the action of final rendered form but I'm not sure how this works as I cannot see a form called "aspnetForm" declared on the page and is an undefined variable according to FireBug.

     Can anyone offer any guidance on this please?


     var sfMvcInputs = document.getElementById("rapidBookForm222").getElementsByTagName("input");
    var sfMvcInputsLen = sfMvcInputs.length;
    while(sfMvcInputsLen--) {
    typeAttr = sfMvcInputs[sfMvcInputsLen].getAttribute("type");
    if(typeAttr == "submit") {
    sfMvcInputs[sfMvcInputsLen].onclick = function() {
    document.forms["aspnetForm"].action = "/a-totally-different-page"";
    document.forms["aspnetForm"].method = "GET";  // changed to post for testing purposes

    The first controller index action is always refereed to when the controls are on one page. This is a bug here is the bug in PITS.
    In the second widget if you redirect to another view the second widget will not be referring to the incorrect  ActionResult.
