Hi,

is there a possibility to make a radio-item in WML? I mean these round things where you can click on... ;-)

Or if this is not possible, how can I do a selection then???


thanks

Most users of phones use the left and right buttons to select from a list or go backwards to a previous menu and use the middle double button for scrolling.

Introducing a complexity like selecting a button on the screen and then submitting is not GUI compatible (if I be allowed to use that expression) or not what they are used to.

I do this by simply making a list of anchors (<a>). The phone high-lights each and I can scroll them and then press the left button to select and process further.

It does mean the modus is "decide what to do and then heres the data" instead of "here's the data, now decide what to do". But most people are used to doing that with their phone anyway.

... ok, so I'll do it with a simple link. But I need to transmit an input field (a simple text field). So the user can type in a word and then choose between two different links representing two different actions.

My question is now: How can I transmit the word entered with this link? Is there a possibility like test.wml?word=anyword or similar?!?

An input field like :-

    Input please:<INPUT name="inp" ..../>

and then either "do"s (for two actions) or anchors :-

<do type="accept" label="LeftAction">
   <go href="LeftButtom.asp" method="post" accept-charset="utf-8">
    <postfield name="inp" value="$inp"/>
   </go>
</do>
<do type="options" label="RightAction">
   <go href="RightButtom.asp" method="post" accept-charset="utf-8">
    <postfield name="inp" value="$inp"/>
   </go>
</do>

The other alternative, with a list, would be anchors :-

<anchor>
   <go href="First.asp" method="post" accept-charset="utf-8">
    <postfield name="inp" value="$inp"/>
   </go>
   First Action
</anchor>

<anchor>
   <go href="Second.asp" method="post" accept-charset="utf-8">
    <postfield name="inp" value="$inp"/>
   </go>
   Second Action
</anchor>

and so on.
