I would like to prompt a form when a certain element is clicked I have the

onClick attribute and know how to call a function.


I need to know how to display a form through javascript that will then be inserted into an sql database...

So if i can be placed at a starting line that would be great

Just do
<a href="#" id="new_form">Click here to launch new form.</a><br><br><span id="formOP"></span>
and in your JavaScript part, do this (easy solution with jQuery is in a spoiler below).

function returnForm(){
var form = '<form method="POST" action="" name="newform"><fieldset><dl><dt>Username</dt><dd>Enter your username:&nbsp;<input type="text" name="username" placeholder="Username"></dd></dl></fieldset></form>'; return form;
function doForm(){
document.getElementById("formOP").innerHTML = returnForm();
return false;
window.onload = function(){
var c = document.getElementById("new_form");
c && c.onclick ? c.onclick = doForm() : return false;

Edit: Fixed a small quotation error. Also, this is just a dummy function, you have to style and customize this code, of course.

I am not perfect. I try a lot with the code I provide and I don't guarantee for it to work as I have mostly no option to test it on my mobile phone. I do apologize for any inconvenience I caused, but if I do happen to have helped, liking my posts or marking them as to have solved or answered your question would be nice.
