Hi I am faily new to ASP.net.

I am trying to understand how posting works.

This script I have has a calender in it which when the date is selected it puts the date into two input boxes.  Now when I hit the submit button, I don't want it posting to the same page, i want it to post to a different page.  How would I do that?


<Html>
<Head>
<script language="VB" runat="server">

    Sub Date_Selected(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)
            txtSD.Text = Calendar1.SelectedDate.ToShortDateString
            txtED.Text = Calendar1.SelectedDate.ToShortDateString
    end sub
    </script>
</Head>
<Body>
<Form runat=server method="post" action="test.php3" name="frmpInfo">
<Table>
<Tr><Td>Domain Name</Td>
<Td><asp:TextBox id="txtdomain" name="txtdomain" runat="server" />
<asp:RequiredFieldValidator ControlToValidate="txtdomain"
Text="Domain Name Required."
runat="server" />
</Td>

</Tr><Tr><Td>Start Date</Td>
<Td><asp:TextBox id="txtSD" name="txtSD" runat="server" />
<asp:RequiredFieldValidator ControlToValidate="txtSD"
Text="Start Date Required."
runat="server" />
</Td>


</Tr><Tr><Td>End Date</Td>
<Td><asp:TextBox id="txtED" runat="server" name="price" />
<asp:RequiredFieldValidator ControlToValidate="txtED"
Text="End Date Required."
runat="server" />
</Td>

</Tr><Tr><Td>Price</Td>
<Td><asp:TextBox id="txtPrice" name="Price" runat="server" />
<asp:RequiredFieldValidator ControlToValidate="txtPrice"
Text="Price Required."
runat="server" />
</Td>

</Tr><Tr><Td>Extra Notes</Td>
<Td><textarea></textarea>
</Td></Tr>
</table>
<BR>
<input type="Submit" name="Submit" id="Submit">
<BR>
<asp:Calendar id=Calendar1 onselectionchanged="Date_Selected" runat="server" />

</form>
</body>
</Html>

In the action element of the form, just put the URL where you want the data to be posted.  It doesn't have to be the current page.

the code above wont work ... this is because you are using postbacks which need to go back to your current page ... if you want to do this you could either

1) use plain html controls without postbacks
2) build the request on the server to submit to the other page and return the other page's output
3) use javascript to submit to the other page when it is time

Hi

        In the action element of the form put URL of page on which you want to transfer or put use Respose.Redirect(URL of the page) on the click event of the sumit button.


 Best Luck
