Change Form input text name=""

I am using

<script type="text/javascript">
function setAction(frm){
act = '';
for(x=0;x<frm.s e.length;x++){
if(frm.se[x].checked){
act = frm.se[x].value;
}
}
if(act == 'MINE'){
frm.action = 'MYSEARCHENGINE .HTML';
}
else if(act == 'OTHER'){
frm.action = 'OTHERSEARCHENG INE.HTML';
}
else{
alert('Please choose an option');
return false;
}
}
</script>

to change the intended search engine with radio buttons.
That works well, however...
I also need to change the name="" of an <input type=text base on which
radio button is chosen.
The two searches require different names for that field.

Can someone please help me with this, or have a working example of one
text input field being submited to a choice of search engines.

Thank you very much in advance.
Devin

Thank you for your quick response, but I'm afraid I may not have been
clear.

It is the <input type=text name="THISNAME" that I need to change based
on the radio selection.

To Be More Clear, here is all of the code I am using. See
CHANGE_WITH_RAD IO_SELECTION to see what I need to change with radio
selection.

Thanks again
Devin

its name have no importance.
function catches this element by its index in the form frm collection

in previous example
<input type=text name="THISNAME"
has to be the first element after opening tag 'form'

<form action="" onsubmit="retur n setAction(this) ">
<input type=text name="THISNAME" value="Your search"
onclick="this.v alue=''"> with
MYSEARCHENGINE: <input type=radio name="se" value="MINE"> or
OTHERSEARCHENGI NE: <input type=radio name="se" value="OTHER">
<input type=submit value="GO">
</form>

what are new names ?
here, in this example,
they'll be 'search' for mine and 'find' for other

<script type="text/javascript">
function setAction(frm){
act = '';
for(x=0;x<frm.s e.length;x++){
if(frm.se[x].checked){
act = frm.se[x].value;
}
}
if(act == 'MINE'){
frm.action = 'MYSEARCHENGINE .HTML';
frm[0].name = 'search';
}
else if(act == 'OTHER'){
frm.action = 'OTHERSEARCHENG INE.HTML';
frm[0].name = 'find';
}
else{
alert('Please choose an option');
return false;
}
return true;
}
</script>
<form action="" onsubmit="retur n setAction(this) ">
<input type=text value="Your Search"
name="CHANGE_WI TH_RADIO_SELECT ION">
My Search
<input type=radio name="se" value="MINE">
Other Search
<input type=radio name="se" value="OTHER">
<input type=submit value="GO">
</form>

I'm very sorry. I do not want to change the Form Name, I want to change
the

<input type=text name="THIS"

The two searches that I am using require this text field to have
different names.

May 11 '06 #8
I Got it now, thank you. I missed the part where you said the text name
should be first after tag.

Thank you very much

Answer: They typically post without quoting.

I would give you the question but I would have to quote it first.

I am traing to output the following HTML string from PHP: "<td><input name='".$i-2."' size='2' type='text' onBlur='myfunction(".$i-2.")'></td>" But it somehow mistreats $i-2. PHP does not throw any errors but the browser renders the table incorrectly. I got round this by introducing another variable j=i-2 and using it in place of i-2 It works. However I am interested to understand why is does not work with i-1. Any comments?

Hello, I have bumped upon this problem: I do some client-side form processing with JavaScript, and for this I loop over all the forms in the document. In order to identify them, I read their "name" property (which sources from "name" HTML attribue). The problem is, that if the form contains form control named "name", it overwrites the form name property. In fact, I'm quite surprised that it's so easy to spoil any of the form object...
