Can I Create Multiple Update Behaviors with one Trigger?

Can I Create Multiple Update Behaviors with one Trigger?

I have a page that has 3 forms. Each form will update different tables in my db. I would like to make it so that I can have one "save" button on the page that will trigger all three update behaviors.

I tried setting each update behavior to fire when a single button is pressed, however I am only able to update one of the tables (from the form where the save button resides) - the other tables update as well but get blank values from the forms.

I assume this is because the form values for the other forms don't persist once an update has fired.

So the question is: is this possible? and how do I implement?

Thanks guys.

you would need to have only 1 form on the page that contains all of the elements to be used for populating the three tables.

if you have multiple forms on a page, only the elements in the form with the submit button in it will be posted.

to update 3 tables, you need 1 form and one submit button, but 3 update record behaviors, one for each table.
