POST data attribute on a div

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Not sure if this is a silly question so here we go.

I have some divs that have data attributes (data-value).  When i submit and post the form, can i use these values as part of the submission and put their data-value into the db?

Thanks as always in advance.

Use hidden form fields.

When you first load the form data, set their values.

As the values change in the JS code, keep the hidden fields updated too.

This is what i thought would be the best option, just wanted to check.

PHP doesn't see data-* attributes. However, you can grab the values using JavaScript and AJAX them to the server if you want. Barand's way is far easier, though.

That being said, assuming you're outputting the form wouldn't you already have the values for the data-* attributes? Or are you trying to associate input data with a kind of metadata? It's very possible I'm just not clear on what you're trying to accomplish.
