iam writing a cgi application in vb4 and vbscript.I have two questions and i want the answers soon i will give all the points i have got.The questions are-
1)if you want to send the data of a form you can do it using the submit button but my problem is i want to send the data present in a textbox to the cgi executable using a LINK and not a submit button.

2)In VBscript iam a able to display a messagebox or a inputbox in the client machine but iam not able to display a user defined input box that is what i want to do is display a user defined input box asking them to enter login and password and when they do so i want to validate in a access database residing in the server.Please answer me with code for this question.

1.

submitting a form using a link can be done in javascript:

<form name="form1">
.formdata..(you don't need a button)
</form>

<a href="Javascript:document.form1.submit()">click here to submit the form</a>

2.
For that you will need an ActiveX control that does the work client side. You can try to use a popup window (small new browser window) which asks for username password.

I use this function to open such popups:

<script language=javascript>
function OpenSmallWindow(page,width,height,windowname) {
   params = new Array(page,windowname)
   Features = "toolbar=no,location=no,directories=no,status=no,menubar=no,scrollbars=yes,width=" + width + ",height=" + height + ",resizable=yes"
   window.open(params[0], params[1], Features);
}
</script>

A window popups then for example with:

<a href="Javascript:OpenSmallWindow('example.htm',400,250,'AnyName')">click here</a>

The parameters to pass are: url, width, height, nameofthewindow

zeus, why is it that you come asking for help when you need it, but then completely ignore your responsibility to grade the questions afterward? You've only graded one, let two more autograde to C, and have 2 more that will be autograded to C soon, for example my answer to http://www.experts-exchange.com/topics/comp/www/cgi/Q.10059469

If you want experts to spend their time helping you, then please have the courtesy to thank them by grading their help.

You should know that client side ActiveX works in MSIE but not in other browsers. So you probably don't want to use it for login. Only MSIE users will be able to login.
