How to preprocess the html address before opening it?


is it possible to open a page like this:


from a local page which would look like this:
----- local page starts -----
Enter ID: ....MY_TEXT_HER E......
----- local page ends ------

The field <MY_TEXT_HERE > should be substitued with the text entered
into the local page. I think that it should be possible with some kind
of client-side scripting - javascript or vbscript or something similar.

I gather you want to automate some server script call/submission,
just in the local page, make the form as it's on the server, and for
Action, give the full url, including http://....., and fill out the
fields Value=".." respectively, you can even submit it upon opening
by means of <body onload="documen t.forms[0].submit()">.

Thanks for reply. I am not sure if I wrote my question clearly. Ok, I
would like to have a local page with an input for entering some text -
say "FUN". After pressing the submit button on that local page I would
like to open (in a new browser window) a url like this:


I am not very familiar with javascript so an example would be great!

Yes, it is possible with client-side scripting. No, this should not
be done that way. It is in fact merely a matter of Web development
and HTML basics:

<form action="http://www.mydb.com/query.php">
<input type="hidden" name="Lng" value="1">
<input type="hidden" name="Edn" value="2">
<input type="hidden" name="Sch" value="5">
<input type="hidden" name="Sky" value="4">

<label for="myID">Ente r ID:</label>
<input name="ID" id="myID" value="MY_TEXT_ HERE">

<input type="hidden" name="Ava" value="Gt5">

<input type="submit" value="Search">

Hi Tomas!

Your code solves exactly what I need! I am wondered there is no need to
use javascript:-)

Thanks a lot!

Hi, My question is probably entirely described in the subject... I need to preprocess a PHP file before it enters the PHP parser. My goal is to change some non-PHP parts of text into PHP orders. I see in PHP doc an output_handler to postprocess the output. And I see that there is no input_handler. Does anybody have a clue, a solution ? I am also looking for a solution outside PHP, in some Apache modules (for instance mod_transform,...
