    Question How can I make a cookie counter appear on a text box

    Hi I created an Index.htm with 5 links, right next to each link is a text box. Everytime I click on a link I want the cookie counter number to appear in the text box for that link. If I view the link 5 times I want it to say in the text box 5. I know how to make it display the number on the actual page I visit but how can I get it to display it on the text box for the index.htm?

    this is the code im using for the link page.

    function addCookie(tag, value)
    {
    var expireDate = new Date()
    var expireString = ""
    expireDate.setTime(expireDate.getTime() + (1000 * 60 * 60 * 24 * 365))
    expireString = "expires=" + expireDate.toGMTString()
    document.cookie = tag + "=" + escape(value) + ";" + expireString + ";"
    }

    function getCookie(tag)
    {
    var value = null;
    var myCookie = document.cookie + ";"
    var findTag = tag + "="
    var endPos

    if (myCookie.length > 0)
    {
    var beginPos = myCookie.indexOf(findTag)
    if (beginPos != -1)
    {
    beginPos += findTag.length
    endPos = myCookie.indexOf(";", beginPos)
    if (endPos == -1)
    endPos = myCookie.length
    value = unescape(myCookie.substring(beginPos, endPos))
    }
    }
    return value

    }


    var CookieValue=0
    CookieValue = getCookie("VisitNumber")
    if (CookieValue != null)
    {
    CookieValue=parseInt(CookieValue) + 1
    }
    else
    {
    CookieValue= 1

    change the following line
    document.write(+CookieValue)
    to something like below.I am presuming that forms
    name="form1"
    and text fields name
    name="t1"

    document.form1.t1.value = CookieValue;
    Cheers

    Hi it works I am able to get the cookie counter value for the link and assign it to the text box in the index.htm page. My problem is this I have 5 links how can I make the index.htm recognize each individual cookie counter? I copied and pasted the code from the first page to the other links but the same value shows up for all 5 I want individual values for each.

    this is what my index.htm looks like

    <html>
    <head>
    <title>Index Form</title>

    <script language="javascript">
    function getCookie(tag)
    {
    var value = null;
    var myCookie = document.cookie + ";"
    var findTag = tag + "="
    var endPos

    if (myCookie.length > 0)
    {
    var beginPos = myCookie.indexOf(findTag)
    if (beginPos != -1)
    {
    beginPos += findTag.length
    endPos = myCookie.indexOf(";", beginPos)
    if (endPos == -1)
    endPos = myCookie.length
    value = unescape(myCookie.substring(beginPos, endPos))
    }
    }
    return value

    }
    </script>

    </head>

    <body bgColor="lightblue">
