I need to know how to post the pages contents to an ASP from an a href= tag... or if that isn't possible, I need scipt to grab the contents of an input text field and append it to my asp page.  eg..  result.asp?Field1=<<Value>>

Where Value is captured from the text field when the user clicks the link...

Any Ideas?

Are you trying to get the values of form fields and then redirect to a page with url querystring?

You can use javascript to post form information. I wrote a script to call which also went to a new page after the submit.

********Here is the function************
function LoginSubmit(varnewpage){

     document.login.newpage.value = varnewpage;
     document.login.submit();

}

***************************************

******** Put this is the href **********
javascript:LoginSubmit('add_user.asp');

Or you could just do in the link

javascript:document.login.submit();

Hope this helps

Try this if you intend to using GET method for form

<form name="frmMain" method="get" action="result.asp">
Text1: <input type="text" name="text1">
<br>
Text2: <input type="text" name="text2">
<br>
<input type="submit" value="Click to redirect">
</form>

Hi,
check out this..

A.html
-------

<script language=javascript>
function fnSubmit()
{
document.myForm.action="b.asp";
document.myForm.method="get";
document.myForm.submit();
return false;
}
</script>

<form name=myForm>
<input type=text name=txt1>
<input type=text name=txt2>
</form>
<a href="b.asp" onclick="javascript:return fnSubmit()">Click Here to submit data</a>


B.asp
------
<%
For each i in Request.QueryString
  response.write "<br>" & i & "  ---  " & request.querystring(i)
Next
%>

Hope this helps...

Hi hongjun,

I already have this definition in my page.

<form name="frmMain" method="get" action="result.asp">

It confirms a users login.  What I need is a way to get info from input boxes into my request string.

so I can build the <a href=...

I know what page I want to go to, I just cannot figure out how to get information that has been entered in the page into the href= locale

venkatg76,

It isn't vbscript but it has potential!

How about this?

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

<script language="VBScript">
Sub redirect
     Dim str
     
     str = "result.htm?text1=" & document.frmMain.text1.value
     str = str & "&text2=" & document.frmMain.text2.value
     MsgBox(str)
End Sub
</script>

</HEAD>
<BODY>

<form name="frmMain" method="get" action="result.asp">
Text1: <input type="text" name="text1">
<br>
Text2: <input type="text" name="text2">
<br>
<input type="button" value="Click to redirect" onclick="redirect()">
</form>


</BODY>
</HTML>

It matters. JavaScript is case sensitive.

I didn't think it was case sensitive but in the case where I have used it I have kept the case the same
