Here is my script: when hitting the submit button, it redirects to the new form, MainUpdate.cfm, but it does not recognize the parameter, AddUpdate: I get a cold fusion error saying: error resolving parameter AddUpdate


<html>
<head>
     <title>Main</title>
</head>
<body>
<form action="MainUpdate.cfm" method="POST" Name="Entry" > 
<!--- main.cfm --->
<table>
     <td>    
                    <input type="image"
                    name="AddUpdate"
                    value="Submit"
                    src="../images/Circle.gif">  
     </td>
</table>
</form>
</body>
</html>

<!--- MainUpdate.cfm --->
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">

<html>
<head>
     <title>Untitled</title>
</head>

<body>


<!--- MainUpdate.cfm --->
<cfif AddUpdate is "Search">
          <CFLOCATION URL="somewhereelse.cfm">
</cfif>
 
<cfif AddUpdate is "Submit">
     
          <!--- do some processing, and then return --->
          <cfoutput>
          inside MainUpdate.cfm, Addupdate = Submit
          </cfoutput>
          <cfabort>
          <CFLOCATION URL="main.cfm">
</cfif>



</body>
</html>

Unfortunately with input type image the value is not sent in HTML forms.

with input type image you get the xy coords of the user's click on that image.

You must either pass a hidden variable or do something else.

If you turn on DEBUG in CF, you will notice that what is being submitted is

AddUpdate.x=some_integer_value
AddUpdate.y=some_integer_value

I've tried using hidden variables... But it didn't work if I had multiple occurences of the input type....

Here is an updated form....

Also, can you modify the forms so that they will work. Thanks.


<html>
<head>
     <title>Main</title>

<body>
<form action="MainUpdate.cfm" method="POST" Name="Entry1" > 
<!--- main.cfm --->
<table>
     <tr>
     <td>    
                    <input type="image"
                    name="AddUpdate"
                    value="Submit"
                    src="../images/Circle.gif">
                     
                    <input type="image"
                    name="AddUpdate"
                    value="Search"
                    src="../images/Circle.gif">

    <td>    
                   <input type="image"
                   name="AddUpdateSubmit"
                   value="Submit"
                   src="../images/Circle.gif">
                     
                   <input type="image"
                   name="AddUpdateSearch"
                   value="Search"
                   src="../images/Circle.gif">
