I don't want to use buttons

P: n/a
I have an asp page that is attached to database and I want to update
the database when the window is closed.

It is basically 5 text boxes wide by 8 text boxes high and these are
all dynamically built by the database loading. I know exactly what
textbox has what in it. I can do everything by submitting a form but
I do not want a button to submit.

Is there a way to when the window is closed run update code for a
database.

I can also open and close another page to do the update if need be.

This is the code that I can use from the submit button. I load an
array with all the values and can loop through these with the
database.

<FORM ACTION=:"array.asp" METHOD="get" id=frmName name=frmName>

I can dynamically build the following which is currently produced by
the submit button.

array.asp?WeekFrom=8/12/2004&WeekTo=8/17/2004&tempid=2&line1text1=21&line1text2=&line1text3 =&line1text4=&line1text5=55&cmdSubmit=Submit

Any help stopping people from pushing my buttons would be greatly
appreciated.

Thanks,

Brent

Four copies of the same post in a 1-minute span is FOUR copies too many. If
you are still trying to learn how to post, I suggest [microsoft.test].

I can see why, you have a habit of hitting Submit buttons multiple
times. Like when posting this message...

It's problematic. You can use a session end as a trigger, but it
could take a while to time out. You could possibly write some
Javascript to detect the window focus change. Maybe even an ActiveX
control.

The real issue is that ASP and HTML are not the same as writing a
program. The browser requests something, the server sends it. Until
the browser sends something back to the server, it's tough to know
what the browser is doing.
I can also open and close another page to do the update if need be.
You can do that but not use a Submit button? Kinda weird...

Perhaps rethinking your button phobia is the real solution. What do
you have against a Submit button on a form that makes this method
unusable?

Use the code below on the client to be called on the onchange event of any of the text boxes.
Create the SaveChange.asp and use it to record the data on each change.

function savedata(dblPositionID,dblValue) {
document.body.style.cursor='wait';
uniqueID++
var XMLHTTP = new ActiveXObject( "Microsoft.XMLHTTP" );
var URL = "SaveChange.asp?PID=" + dblPositionID + "&VALUE=" + dblValue + "&UCALLID=" + uniqueID
XMLHTTP.open( "GET", URL, false );
XMLHTTP.send();
var result = XMLHTTP.responseText ;
document.body.style.cursor='auto';
}

Bear in mind that ActiveX only works in IE, your solution could be done in Javascript

Sorry for the multiple posts, I used google groups and pressed submit
button only once. Guess I will have to stop using google posting so I
don't irritate the people that are helping me.

Thanks,
