Form submit: Ignoring value property as formfield data
Posted on 2003-11-12
The dropdown is a "codelist" comprised of digits that each equal to a string (ie a zipcode tabel).
Now, when a user clicks submit, the data passed from the dropdown formfield is the content of the value property. As the content of the value property is just a textstring, the form processing page gets incorrect information from the form (the form needs the digits, not the matching text expression).
My question is thus: Is there a way to tell a form to process the actual option instead of the option's value property?
