submit from a text link - with a twist
Posted on 2008-06-11
I have a form and due to client demands they want to be able to click a text link to submit the form. So the link looks like this: <a href="#" onclick="document.theForm.submit()">Click here to view</a>
the problems are, a) this is a cgi page, b) there is a <base> tag defined<base href="mydomain.com">. So clicking the link, actually takes me to mydomain.com/# instead of just leaving me at my current location. Putting in the full path to the page in the href causes me to lose my form data.
Can anybody help me resolve this?
