Hi Greg,

When you say you are trying to 'pass' a text field in to a form, where are you passing it from?  Is the text field on the same page or another page?

No, the point of the form tags is to send a form and it's contents.  If it's outside, it is useless when submitting a form.

What you could do is put a hidden field in the form, that is always the same a the text outside of the form, so that the value will submit with the form.  You will need to use an onchange or onblur event for the text outside of the form the update the hidden field.

I fully realize the purpose of the from tags my goal in not using the form tags on the area is that the error checking is not good enough unless i can call a txtfield inside a form?

How would i set the value of a hidden field to another textboxt?

<input type="hidden" name="op1" value = (txt.value) >  ?????????

Hi Greg,

I'm afraid all of the things you describe are simple in javascript but as you've said you don't want to use it, I think your stuck.

Here is javascript:

<SCRIPT ID=clientEventHandlersJS LANGUAGE=javascript>
<!--

function text2_onchange() {
window.form1.text1.value = window.text2.value;
}

//-->
</SCRIPT>
</HEAD>
<BODY>

<P>
<FORM action="" method=POST id=form1 name=form1>

<INPUT id=text1 name=text1>
</FORM>
<br><br>
<INPUT id=text2 name=hidden LANGUAGE=javascript onchange="return text2_onchange()"></P>

Whoops:

Text2 is supposed to be like this: (type=hidden)

Javascript:
<INPUT type=hidden id=text2 name=text2 LANGUAGE=javascript onchange="return text2_onchange()">

VBScript:
<INPUT type=hidden id=text2 name=text2>
