Redirect search function to 2 separate pages

I'm trying to set up a search function for a property website where you search for either 'Buy' or "Let'

If you click on Buy I want to redirect to uksearch.php  and if you click let you go to uksearchlet.php

I can't figure out how to redirect to separate page depending on the button clicked, hope someone else does!

The info from the hidden info buttons needs to be sent over in the URL.

Here's the code i'm using at the moment which goes the same page regardless of which button you click


   <form name="form1" method="get" action="uksearch.php">
    
    
      <div class="searchbut">      <input type="submit" name="saleorRent" id="button" value="Buy"  style="width: 60px; height: 54px; border: 0px; font-family: Georgia, Times, serif; font-size: 25px; outline: 0px; padding: 0px;background: url(images/search-rent.jpg) no-repeat; cursor: pointer;">
      
      
      
      <input type="submit" name="saleorRent" id="button" value="Let"  style="width: 60px; height: 54px; border: 0px; font-family: Georgia, Times, serif; font-size: 25px; outline: 0px; padding: 0px;background: url(images/search-rent.jpg) no-repeat; cursor: pointer;"></div>
      <input name="area" type="text" class="searchinput" id="area">
     
     
      
      <input name="intsearch" type="hidden" id="intsearch" value="250">
      <input name="max" type="hidden" id="max" value="99999999999999">
      <input name="intsearch" type="hidden" id="intsearch" value="GBR">
    </form>

A little bit of theory...
http://php.net/manual/en/tutorial.forms.php

The action= attribute of the form tag determines what URL will be requested when the form is submitted.  You can only submit a form to one URL.  But that one URL can call a script that does lots of interesting things.

For example, the action script could look at the value of the submit control and decide whether to transfer control to a Buy or Let script.  Perhaps this transfer of control could happen via a require() statement.  You can have any number of submit control buttons - as many as you would like - and the value associated with the submit control is the same as any value associated with a text input control.

Please post back if you have any questions -- it's a little involved to set up an example but I'll be willing to do so if you need an example.
