Referencing Form name

Recommended Posts

I know this may be a newbie question, but it is something I've been unable to find an answer to. I have a form, name attribute is accom and I wish to reference that forn name in a script that does certain things depending on what the form name is.
[code]<form action="http://www.domain.com/forms/processor.php" method="POST" name="Accom">[/code]

Now, to refer to this particular form, is it: [code]$formname = $_POST['Accom'];[/code] ?

I would appreciate any enlightenment about this! [img src=\"style_emoticons/[#EMO_DIR#]/smile.gif\" style=\"vertical-align:middle\" emoid=\":smile:\" border=\"0\" alt=\"smile.gif\" /]

Most browsers wont send the form name. You'll need to duplicate the form name in a hidden field and get it from there. eg;
[code]
<input type="hidden" name="formname" value="Accom">
[/code]
[code]
if ($_POST['formaname'] == "Accom") {
  // do something;
}
[/code]

Thorpe,

Thanks! Didn't know the form name wasn't processed. Was trying to avoid the hidden field due to some minor issues in the processing routine, but if there is no other way, hidden it is. Thanks again!
