Hello
I need some clarifications concerning submitting web form details to paypal. I know the form basics, whereby use the actions and post method, as well as to create to the editors
like
<input type="text"  name="..." value="..">

but however I've seen in some codes they used <input type="hidden"...>

This is the part which has confused me, when to use the hidden and if for example I have editors in my form, which currently are
<input type="text" name="first name">
<input type="text" name="last name">
...
how to use the input type= hidden in this one??

try like this

<input type="hidden" name="first name">
<input type="hidden" name="last name">


hidden means it will now show up on screen

ok, but how will I make the user input then? I need to get the user to fill in the form before then proceed with submission to paypal... or I need to create another similar form then redirect the original one to it when click on submit button??
