PHP; Submit Button Outside IFrame

Have a CommaCheckboxes form with submit button.

Because of the number of checkboxes, we need to set the form within an IFrame but have the submit button outside the IFrame.

No problem constructing the IFrame but the submit button is of course not working.


<form id="form1" name="form1" method="post" action="r_aportmon.php">
                      <table width="100%" border="0"  class="KT_tngtable ">
                        <tr>
                          <td><label>
                            <input name="button2" type="submit" class="headsubmitthin" id="button2" value="go with the selection" />
                          </label></td>
                        </tr>
                        <tr>
                          <td width="32%"><div class="a-10-b-3c63a2" id="labeltest">
                              <label >
                              <input name="aportID" class="a-10-b-3c63a2"  id="aportID" wdg:recordset="rst_airport" wdg:subtype="CommaCheckboxes" wdg:type="widget" wdg:displayfield="apname" wdg:valuefield="id_ap" wdg:groupby="4" />
                              </label>
                          </div><input name="datano" type="hidden" id="datano" value="5" /></td>
                          </tr>
                        <tr >
                          <td><label>
                            <input name="button" type="submit" class="headsubmitthin" id="button" value="go with the selection" />
                            
                          </label></td>
                        </tr>
                      </table>
                  </form>

Isn't it useful to use a <div style="overflow:auto"> instead of an iframe?

Hello

You can submit your form in the iframe from the parent form..

like this (on button click)

[iframeName].document.[formName].submit()

where [iframeName] is the name of iframe and [formName] is the name of form in iframe..
