How to tell asp to do something only after a form is submitted?

I want to popup a message only after DW form resends the page to itself and collects a form value.

Right now my code on top of the page is:

if request.Form("signature") = 1 then

run insert into database code

else %>

  <script language="javascript">
  alert("You must check the box in the agreement statement in order to apply to the program.");
<% end if %>

I know one can create a querystring and then confirm that the page has already run by requesting the querystring.

But is there an easier way? Basically, something to tell ASP "do this only after the sumit button has been clicked"

Have a hidden text field on your page that is initially set to a vaule like "".  Then in the header of your page, check the value of that hidden text field, and do something if it is <>"".  When the user hits submit, just change this value.

Hope this helps.
