100+
P: 137
Hallo,
I'm busy with a nieuws-item and when somebody wants to send the nieuws item to a friend he can click on a image.
Then a new window will pop up and there he can put in his and his friends names and email-adres.
But i have 1 problem, i can't get no value of a variable to the new form.
This is what i now have...:
[HTML] <form method="post"><input type="image" src="templates/images/emailvriend.gif" onClick="window.open('http://www.website.com/the_script.php','mywindow','width=500,height=500,l eft=350,top=300')" name="test2" value="blablablabla" /></form>[/HTML]

as you can see i tried to put in a name and a value but.. uuuu nothing...
Can anyone please help me?

Thanx Paul

Any data in a form is posted to the server but javascript is only run on the client/browser. So that script has no way to get that value the way it's written now. Ask on the javascript board how to do what you want.

maybe:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <a href="#" onClick="window.open('http://www.website.com/the_script.php?test2=blablablabla','mywindow','width=500,height=500'); return false;"><img src="templates/images/emailvriend.gif" border="0"></a>

there should be no gap in "width", not sure why that is getting put into the code because the gap is not there when I try and edit it.

I would think it should work if the PHP script knows how to handle the data being sent in the query string. But alas, I don't know PHP.
