Hello,

I have a coldfusion which display information from a SQL database.  I've add a function of CFMAIL that everytime the use click the button 'update' the new record will update the database and send an email.

But i have a problem everytime i refresh that page an email will be sent... What I want that everytime the user CLICK the 'update' button an email should be generated.

thank you

You can put the cfmail into the file..  update_account_info_e.cfm
which is where you do the update.  Then only when the update happens, the email will send.
Is the update happening every time the page is refreshed as well?  it must be if the emial is sent.


You need to add a submit button, you can test for submit by checking for the name of the submit button..

<cfif isDefined("form.submit")>
    ... do your update
    ... send your email
    ... use cflocation to redirect to a new page
</cfif>
