Using Rollovers As 'Submit' Buttons And Passing Values?

Recommended Posts

First off, sorry for the crosspost, but I wasn\'t sure which one to put this in. I\'m using Dreamweaver but the function is Javascript.

 

Since starting to use DW (6.1) - I\'ve been changing my Form Submit buttons into Graphic Rollovers and they work great if I need to go from page to page:

 

<form name=\"activatedok\" method=\"post\" action=\"index.php\">

<a onmouseout=\"MM_swapImgRestore()\" onmouseover=\"MM_swapImage(\'Image1\',\'\',\'./images/button-sdragon.gif\',1)\"><img name=\"Image1\" border=\"0\" src=\"./images/button-return.gif\" onclick=\"document.activatedok.submit()\"></a>

</form>

 

Now I\'ve come to a point that I need to actually PASS a variable to another php file like a normal Submit button but I can\'t figure out how to do it. :/ The statement that would need to pass would be:

 

<form name=\"purchase_guide\" method=\"post\" action=\"purchase.php\">

<font color=\"#FFFFFF\" size=\"3\" face=\"Times New Roman, Times, serif\"><strong><em>Only 1 Allowed Per Game</em></strong></font><br>

<a onmouseout=\"MM_swapImgRestore()\" onmouseover=\"MM_swapImage(\'Image6\',\'\',\'./images/button-sdragon.gif\',1)\"><img name=\"Image6\" border=\"0\" src=\"./images/button-buy.gif\" onclick=\"document.purchase_guide.submit()\"></a>

</form>

 

And I would need to pass (to \'purchase.php\') the values of:

 

value=\"Buy Guide\" name=\"buyitem\"

 

How would I do this?

 

Thanks! :)

hi,

 

well, i think so, you\'d use some like this...

 

<form name=\"purchase_guide\" method=\"post\" action=\"purchase.php?value=\'Buy Guide\'&name=buyitem>

<font color=\"#FFFFFF\" size=\"3\" face=\"Times New Roman, Times, serif\"><strong><em>Only 1 Allowed Per Game</em></strong></font><br>

<a onMouseOut=\"MM_swapImgRestore()\" onMouseOver=\"MM_swapImage(\'Image6\',\'\',\'./images/button-sdragon.gif\',1)\"><img name=\"Image6\" border=\"0\" src=\"./images/button-buy.gif\" onClick=\"document.purchase_guide.submit()\"></a>

</form>

 

Change this line... in action=\"purchase.php?value=\"buy guide\"&namebuyitem

 

Like this...

 

<form name=\"purchase_guide\" method=\"post\" action=\"purchase.php?value=\'Buy Guide\'&name=buyitem>

 

and test it...

 

remember retrive whit $value= $_GET[\'value\']; or $value= $_REQUEST[\'algo\']; in purchase.php idem for name

 

i hope that work correctly :)

You can\'t do that, sorry.

 

Instead, try using a \"hidden\" field:

<input type="hidden" value="Buy Guide" name="buyitem">

And, also remember register_globals.
