    Question How to get Textbox value to textarea in another page?


    I'm new here, so it's my first post. I don't know which things I need to post, but I'll try to post everything that I have and I want.

    I'm trying to make a HTML Application Form in which, I have form like this:

    HTML Code:
    <font><strong>General Questions</strong></font> <br>
    <strong>Are You Human?:</strong>
    <select name="chooser">
    <option selected="selected">------- Select The Option -------</option>
    <option value="bla">Yes</option>
    <option value="blabla">No</option>
    <option value="blablabla">What Is this?</option>
    <input name="usertext" type="text"><br>
    <center><input type="reset" value="Clear All Text Box" onclick="return confirm('Clear all fields?')">
    <input type="button" value="Get Code" onclick="transfer_it(chooser,usertext,readout)"><br></center>
    <center><textarea name="readout" rows="15" cols="100" readonly></textarea></center>
    Also, I have an Javascript which uses the input name and then shows in a text area. Here is the Javascript:

    <script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">
    function transfer_it(oSelect, oText, oTextarea)
    	var seltext = '', usertext = '';
    	if (oSelect.selectedIndex != 0) //not default option
    		seltext = oSelect.options[oSelect.selectedIndex].text; //get displayed text
    	usertext = oText.value; //get textfield
    	if (seltext != '')
    		oTextarea.value = 'Are You Human?: ' + seltext;
    	if (usertext != '')
    		oTextarea.value += '\n\In-Game Name: ' + usertext;
    Now, the problem is, I can't add more number of textboxes and also, I want it to sent in another HTML page.

    My friend did with PHP, but, I found that this can be done with HTML too.

    HTML Website link: http://curthidalgo.url.ph/applysamd.html

    OK, this looks a bit "homeworky". I'll give you a hint. Look up sessionStorage.
