I am using this to check to see if a form has been submitted when using a image as the button for submit

<cfif IsDefined("Form.save.x")></cfif>

It does not work if i am using a standard HTML button for submit

what do i need to use when using a HTML button.

Thanks

Peter

Use only the submit button name.
Like this:

<cfif IsDefined("Form.yourButtonName")>Submitted</cfif>

Zvonko:
Sure, specifying submit button name will work, too. Unless there are multiple submit buttons (to possibly define different action to be performed). Using #form.fieldnames# is more generic and will work every time. Just make sure that form method is "post", not "get" (in which case url variable scope will nedd to be used, of course)

Hello CosmicKoder,
sorry but eszaq is right. He proposed before me the better solution.
The FORM.FieldNames is a variable generated by ColdFusion at EVERY form submit with form method set to POST.
If you do agree I can ask Community Support to open this question for new grading.
