Retrieve Form Values From A Web Bot
Posted on 2004-08-13
I did not author this site. Someone else in my company did. For some reason, they used Frontpage.. (probably because they DONT know what they are doing..) I have a disdain for front page..
On the form, the Action is set to --Webbot-Self--
It is my understanding and experience that if you submit a form to say "Results.asp" you can retrive the values of the fields on the form using this syntax:
FName = Request.Form("FirstName")
LName = Request.Form("LastName")
However, since the form is being submitted to --WebBot-Self--, the form values have magically disappeared into thin air along with any shred of respect i had for microsoft.
How do you retrive form values on the resultant targeted asp page once they have been submitted to a web bot?
I know they are there because further down on the form's autogenerated gibberish they are outputted to the document for review. They are referenced like this:
<Webbot bot="xxx" s-value:xx.. >
(This is not exact.. im going from memory here..)
So, you can output values from the from by referencing the webbot object..
I need to get those into variables in my server side function.. (scroll back up)
How do i do it? Do i need to query a web bot object instead of the form object?
HELP!!! Its very late on friday and im cranky! I need a rum and coke.
