input text field

I have a input field to keep a value from the previous page like below.
<input type="text" name="d1" value="previous_page">
But what i am trying to do is to change the value of d1 and send new value to next page.

<form name="nextpage" action="nextpage.html">
<input type="text" name="d1" value="{$previous_page}">
</form>

How can i send a new value to nextpage??

before the page is submitted, you can try to change its value via javascript, like this...

<script language="javascript">
    function validate(frm) {
      frm.d1.value = "{ new Value.... }";
      return true;
   }
</script>
<form name="nextpage" action="nextpage.html" onsubmit="return validate(this)">
<input type="text" name="d1" value="{$previous_page}">
</form>

TRY THIS..

<html><head>
<script language="javascript">
   function fn_setval() {
     document.nextpage.d1.value = "<New Value>";
     document.nextpage.submit();
   }
</script>
</head>
<body>
<form name="nextpage" action="nextpage.html">
<input type="text" name="d1" value="{$previous_page}">
<input type="button" onclick="fn_setval();" value="as">
</form>
</body>
</html>
