    resolved [RESOLVED] subminT form using hyperlink

    hi

    i have a webpage with a menu. The menu is in a form linked to a php process page. Depending on what link you click the php will process the relavent information. my menu/form is setup like this:

    Code:
    <form name="formname" method="post" action="process.php" >
                    <li> <h3> Player Stats </h3>
    					<ul>
    						<li><a name="option1" href="javascript:submitform();" onClick="submitForm('option1');">option1</a></li>
    this is the javascript that processes the form:

    Code:
    <script type="text/javascript">
    			function submitform()
    			{
      				document.formname.submit();
    			}
    	</script>
    when it come the php page. the php codes isnt picking up which link has been clicked. the php code i use to test is:

    <?php print $_POST['submit']; ?>

    and i just get this error: Notice: Undefined index: submit in C:\wamp\www\statisticsprocess.php on line 31

    the code i am using doesnt pass the option in the menu to the php page. what do i need to change in the function submitform() to do this so the php picks it up?

    thanks for your help

    <?php print $_POST['submit']; ?>
    there was no element named "submit", and what property of <a> you want to pass to process.php? href? text link? or ??

    fyi, "submit" is a bad idea for form element name, pick another one.

    some example:
    HTML Code:
    <form name="formname" method="post" action="process.php" >
    <input type="hidden" name="submitdata" value=""/>
    <h3> Player Stats </h3>
    <ul>
    	<li><a name="option1" href="#" onclick="submitForm(this);">option1</a></li>
    </ul>
    </form>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    function submitForm(a){
    	document.formname.submitdata.value=a.innerHTML;
    	document.formname.submit();		
    }
    </script>
    and the process.php:
    PHP Code:
    <?php print($_POST['submitdata']); ?>

    What is wrong with using a styled submit button? Using JavaScript has accessibility issues.

    i have used all that code you gave me but when I click on any of the links in my form nothing happens. my links look like this:

    Code:
    <li><a name="link1" href="javascript:submitform();" onClick="submitForm('link1');">link 1</a></li>
    is that correct?
