Using form to Submit variable

Recommended Posts

Hi, i have the following code:


print "<FORM align=\"Center\" action=\"<?php echo $PHP_SELF ?>\" method=\"GET\">";
			print "<Button name=\"Button\" value=\"".$file."\">".$file."</button>";
			print "</FORM>";	
			print $PHP_SELF;


Once i have clicked the button created by the script, the URL i see in the address bar comes up as




The PHP script is called Manager.php and

print $PHP_SELF 

comes up as /PHP/Manager.php

There is further code in Manager which deals with the variables shown the URL, but this doesn't work at the moment because instead of appending "/PHP/Manager.php?Button=Program.java" to the URL, it appends,




Can someone tell me why this is happening?

Hello richards,


Why don't you use


<input type="submit" value='".$file."'>".$file."</button>


$file =urlencode($file)


then for process you can get back the original value by urldecode($file)



<FORM align="Center" action="<?php echo $PHP_SELF ?>" method="GET">

<input type="submit" name="Button" value="<?php echo $file ?>" />



Will this help you ?
