Using a vbscript function how do you set a form's action?  I've tried form.action = "goto.htm".  Unfortunately this is not what is to be done.  Please help.

In fact, that's the way to do so. Make sure that the name of the form is correct.

If you provide some of your code we can have a look to find possible errors.

See this little code sample:

<script language="VBScript">
function setAction()
     msgbox "Original action=" & Form1.action
     Form1.action="http://www.experts-exchange.com"
     msgbox "New action=" & Form1.action
     
end function

</script>


<form name="Form1" action="">
     <input type=text name=test><br>
     <input type=button value="Click" onclick="setAction">

</form>

Here's a short example:

<HTML>
<HEAD>
<META NAME="GENERATOR" Content="Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0">
</HEAD>
<BODY>

<SCRIPT language="VBScript">
function doSubmit()
     form1.action = "rg1.asp"
     form1.method = "post"     ' OR form1.method = "get"
     form1.submit
end function
</SCRIPT>
<FORM name="form1">
<BUTTON onClick=doSubmit()>Submit</BUTTON>
</FORM>
</BODY>
</HTML>


What's important is:
-define the form in your html page with the same name
-the submit IS case secsitive and must be written exaclty how I did
-you can use POST or GET (or leave it empty): POST will send data that's between the FORM-tags (the INPUT fields) in a hidden way; GET will send it in the URL.
-action = name of the page where you want to go to !

I think this should solve your problem, otherwise tell the exact error/problem you have.

The answer is so simple .

<form name="loveneesh" method="post" action="tt.asp">

</form>

you can try this

but if you really want it through a function then you can use a simple variable and store the file name in this  variable tryhen write action=variable name.


bye loveneesh

if you still need any help then mail me at loveneesh_bansal@hotmail.com
