Hidden layer containing form fields doesnt submit after being unhidden and filled out

Hi All,

Hopefully a nice and simple one. I have a form with some hidden layers containing form fields, using css display:none .

These are then unhidden using some javascript that sets the properties of this layer to display:block .

All works well other than, when the form is submitted the data from these fields doesnt apper in the post data, and hence not in the email that the php script it submits to sends out.

best wishes,

Could we see your code - as even hidden fields should be posted..

<script language="javascript">
function captionjs(selObj){

<a href="javascript:captionjs()">Click here</a> to add additional drivers

<div id="captioncontent" style="display:none;">
<br />
<b>Additional Driver 1</b>
<br />
<br />
Title: <br />
<select name="Add_Driver_1_Title">                        
      <option value="0" selected>&gt;&gt; select</option>
      <option value="1">&gt;&gt; Mr</option>
      <option value="2">&gt;&gt; Mrs</option>
      <option value="3">&gt;&gt; Miss</option>
      <option value="4">&gt;&gt; Ms</option>
      <option value="5">&gt;&gt; Dr.</option>
<br />
This piece of code works for me if i put it in a form and submit it.
Maybe could you post more of your code (so as to see your form, the position of this element in it,..)
