I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hello, There is the html code:
<!-- Load icon library -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/font-awesome/4.7.0/css/font-awesome.min.css">

<!-- The form -->
<form class="example" action="action_page.php">
  <input type="text" placeholder="Search.." name="search">

What submitted value?
What value are you wanting to get?

You can give a button a type="submit" and a name attribute and a value attribute

<button type="submit" name="myButton" value="someValue">My Button</button>

Open in new window

If that is in a form it will be submitted as follows as part of the form submit
myButton=someValue

Open in new window
