form elements created by not posting

1 New Member
hey.
Im creating a basic function to submit product skus and quantities to another page
i am created the form elements for the quantities in a popup div based on items selected on the current page.

I am looping round those, and creating an input field for each
i need each input field to be submitted with the post of the main form on the page

here is my function
for some reason even thought the input fields are being appended to a div inside the main form... they are not submitted when the form is posted.

Thanks for you help.
Rob

I have a large form that is generated dynamically in a jsp using xml / xslt. So, to break up this form into several "tabbed" sections, I break up the form using <div> tags. Each <div style="display:none"> can be displayed by setting the style attribute to "display:", or hidden with "display:none". This gives the illusion that the person filling out the form is switching from page to page...without the overhead of extra hits on the server,...

Hi, I have a problem trying to validate dynamically created html form elements using javascript. I have dynamically created a check box using ASP for each record in a recordset and have given each a unique ID using the primary key from a db table. e.g "chk" + "1" for record 1 and "chk" + "2" for record 2 etc. This means each box is called chk1 and chk2 respectively. This works fine and changes dependant on the recordset used and allows me...

For example, in the case of one of the forms, I have a drop down for school, a text box for degree, and a text box for concentration. The form shows 3 of these groupings by default but would like the user to be able to "add more" 3 element groupings if need be and "remove" the additional elements if needed. The schools...
