Multiple actions on submit?

Recommended Posts

What\'s the best way to do this? I want to do more than one thing when the user submits a form. I want their data input into the database and I also want a response email mailed to them using a mailform script.

 

Now, I could have the first Submit enter the code and have the user hit ANOTHER button to send the email, but that seems very user-hostile.

 

Is there another way to do something like this?

the way I would do it is I would make 2 functions and call them once the user submits a form

 

button ==> submit ==> result.php*

 

*containing 2 functions:

1 - data input

2 - response email

 

note: I\'ve had to open connect to mysql once for each action

 

anyone got any other solultions? :)
