Automatically click the button for you if there is a date

I have a file called file.php which has:

$row2= pg_fetch_array($result2);
$website = 'http://validate/?id='.$newDateString;



     <td><?php echo'<a href="'.$website.'">'. $row['name']; ?></td>

Open in new window

The code sends to a file named jasmine.php the url with the date since jasmine contains a calendar. It sends it when you click on the date which contains a link to jasmine.

<div id="content">
    <h2>Hello, Please let me know which date you are looking for </h2>
    <div><label style="font-size: 14pt; font-family: Verdana;">Posting Date: </label></div><br />
    <input type="text" id="date" value= "<?php echo $_GET['id']?>" class="css-input" placeholder="Posting Date..." readonly="readonly" /><br /><br />

    <input type="button" id="validate" value="Let's work!" class="btn" /> 
    <input type="button" id="clear" value="Wanna go Again?" class="btn" />
<div id="contentarea2" style="display: none;">
    <div class="view_alerts">
                    # Posted

            <tbody id="view_alerts_tbody">

In Jasmine, I get the date already written for me from file.php, all I need to do is click the button so it could show me a table, is there a way, that it clicks the button on its own if theres a date written, so when I go on that link, it already puts the date and takes me to the table in jasmine.php

I got it done by this code:
if($_GET['id'] != NULL){

$(window).load(function() {

<?php }?>

I am not clear on what is required here.

The code sends to a file named jasmine.php
Which code - what does it send and how - can you show me.

ok on file.php again i have a table like this:
Name                                                                                 Date 
-----------                                                                             -----------

When I click on the name it takes me to jasmine.php
with the date (which if I click on the first name the date will show as "04-11-2015")
So the jasmine link would be "/jasmin.php?id=04/11/2015" and All I need to do is click the button called "Let's work!" for it to run the date and give me data back. Is there a way to just show me the data directly without needing to click the button, since the date it already there? Should I show you my php code that gets me the data?

What do you mean "run the date and give me data back" - what is linked to the "Lets's Work" button I don't see a form or any javascript.
Jazzy 1012Author Commented:
Here is where it says "posting date" is where the date would be okay and I need to click the button for it to generate data for me
Therefore is there a way that I can skip this page and just go to the next one where the data is already generated since i chose the date from file.php
Julian HansenCommented:
Hold on - I am playing catchup here - you are continuing on the assumption that we have full knowledge of your setup - which is not the case. You need to take this one step at a time.
I have no idea what your system does or how it hangs together so you need to take me through it. Based on your description so far I am still confused as to what is happening.

Lets start from the beginning
You have a script that produces a list of links.
The links point to a page "jasmine.php" and include a date in the URL.

First question - what happens when you click the link.
A) Does the link take you to a new page
B) Do you have some javascript that intercepts the click and makes an AJAX call to the target page.

It takes me to a new page which has the popup calendar I showed, with the date displaying inside

Ok - next key thing which popup calendar are you using. If you want to know how to manipulate your calendar we need to know which one you are using on your site.
Julian HansenCommented:
Well done.
