Custom Form Handler parm
Posted on 2003-03-10
I have a drop-down form box.
I have checked "Send to other" in the Forms Properties.
In the action field, I do not want to enter a literal (specific page file).
I want to enter the field from the drop-down box.
The values in the drop-down box contain filenames so when one is selected, I want the action to act on the value of the field rather than the literal. Since the value of the field will be a filename, it will run that file.
When I use the POST method, it places the literal expression in the URL and therefore does not find the page.
When I use the GET method, I can see the value of the selection but a bunch of other stuff is concatenated with it.
I looked at the HTML of this. It seems like I should be able to use some other syntax around the name of the variable for the form selection so it uses its value for the ACTION rather than the literal.
Does anyone know that particular syntax or a way to solve this?
Thanks in advance for all the help
