If I am going to do required field in php  when do I make the function happen.  On the next php or the current one. Here is my code

<h4>EmailLauncher Note Form</h4>
<form action="write.php" method="post""> 
Campaign: <input name="campaign" type="text" value=""/> 
if(trim($_POST['campaign']) == "") {
  die("no value was entered");
<select name="experience"> 
<option>So So</option>
<select name="note"> 

Customer Lead Name: <input name="name" type="text" value=""/> 

<input type="submit" />

However it automatically kill it right away.  Is there a way to have the function execute on button click before going to write.php

To use php, the check has to be on the next page.

If you want to check on the same page (ie: when the submit button is pressed, but before the information is submitted to the next page) use javascript
If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate
