Scenario:

I have a form with 5 fields. When I click on a button, I need a VBScript that stores all the values in the form fields in respective variables. I need to use these variables in a procedure.

How can I set variables to the form field values??

make the action of your form:

ACTION="process.asp" METHOD="POST"

Now this is the process.asp

Var1 = Request.Form("inputname1")
Var2 = Request.Form("inputname2")
Var3 = Request.Form("inputname3")
Var4 = Request.Form("inputname4")
Var5 = Request.Form("inputname5")

Now call your procedure with those variables. This assumes that your page with the form has the text boxes named inputname1, etc...

I dont want to post the variables to another form. I'd rather use an event that looks at all the fields of the page and picks up their values

Use the onclick event.

You have a form with a name. And all the option / input boxes etc. have a name too. Then when the user clicks a button you do

<input type=button onclick="javascript:IsClicked()">

The javascript function will look like:

function IsClicked()
{
        value1=formname.formitem.value;
        ...
        return false;
}

Only use return false if you don't want the page to reload.
