ASP + Alert box, passing a value

I have an ASP page form that has an input field called 'bid'

<input name="bid" type="text"  size="30">

Once a bid amount is entered and then the submit button clicked, I would like an alert box to pop up and say.

You are placing a bid in the amount of XYZ.  With XYZ being the amount they entered in the input box.

This is what I have so far but it obviously does not work.


<input name="bid" type="text"  size="30">

<input type="submit"   value="Submit"   onClick="alert('You are placing a bid in the amount of ' +documnet.form1.bid.value)">



Or, is there a better way to do this ?

the word "documnet" should spell "document"

besides that, it should work.  just make sure you spell the form name correctly, and make sure that "bid" input is inside the <form></form> tag

<script>
function SendBid(){
alert("You are placing a bid in the amount of " +document.form1.bid.value);
document.form1.submit(document.form1);
}
</script>

<input name="bid" type="text"  size="30">

<input type="button"   value="Submit"   onClick="SendBid();">

This code works for me (Note that you had spelled "document" wrong in your original post):

<form name=form1>
  <input name="bid" type="text"  size="30">
  <input type="submit"   value="Submit"   onClick="alert('You are placing a bid in the amount of ' +document.form1.bid.value)">
</form>

Thanks for the help.

One last question.

I set it up as a function and it works fine.  However, when I click "Ok" it does not submit the form.

Here is the code.

<!--hide script from older browsers

// JavaScript to verify bid

 
function SendBid()
{
confirm("You are about to submit a bid in the amount of $" + document.form1.bid.value +  "\n Tax will be appplied to your  bid");

 
}


//end script-->


Do I have to put in a return false or return true somewhere ?
