Dear Experts,
I am trying to send  out two different information from one page
Is it possible to get one submit button working two different thing? How?

Here is what I want to do,

1. when the "Register & Pay" button clicked I want a registration page info get saved in to my database.

2. with the same click event I want the users to be forwarded to the Paypal page so that they can have the option to pay for their registration.

How can I get this done from one "register & Pay" button.

My appreciation to you all

Create two buttons with different values - value1 and value2.

On the server side check which button was clicked by checking the variable that was set

$_POST['value1'] or $_POST['value2']

Handle the button clicked event with sequential code in a custom function.  The first portion would deal with the data being stored in the data base.  Once that transaction is complete, then, forward the response to the paypal page.

You could possibly also put a different procedure call for each button in the form script and then for each button, use a 'onclick' command.

Hi,

First of all, you can use Javascript to post two forms consectively. You can set the target of the form to something a hidden frame or iframe. Then the current document will not be lost when the first form is posted. For example, somewhere in your document you can have:

<iframe name="dummy" width="0" height="0"></iframe>

Open in new window


And then in your Javascript, you can do the following:

document.Form1.target = 'dummy';
document.Form1.submit();
document.Form2.submit();

Open in new window


I am sure that you can also use Javascript to create a hidden frame object, and then assign it to the target property so that you don't need to embed an <iframe/> in your HTML.

Does this solve your problem?

This can be done by calls made to different functions on the click event

Like <input type="button" value="test" onclick="a();b()"/>

in function a you can make a call to post the form using  document.myform.submit();

in function b u can redirect to other website
