I have three drop down boxes that I want to pass information and display on to another form.  Can anyone point me in the direction of an example of this or explain the best way of doing it?

Thanks.

Using Perl and CGI it's fairly straightforwards.  Make sure the drop down boxes are within your <form> tags and then submit the form.  Providing each drop down has a different name, you can then access their values in the Perl script by calling something like:

$q->param('dropdownname')

If you want to display these values on the next form, you would typically have the Perl script read in your html file, then perform a RegExp swap on it.  So for example the source html file might contain the string:

DROPDOWNNAME

at the location you want to replace it.

The Perl is then:

my $text = $q->param('dropdownname');
$html =~ s/DROPDOWNNAME/$text/g;

Using ASP, you would add the <select name='FormSelect1'> tag, then use the follwing code to get the parameters:

<% x = Request.Form(FormSelect1) %>

You once you have the value stored in a variable, you can print it to the page using:

<% Response.Write("My Passed Value is: " & x) %>
