putting information from iframe in hidden textfiel

P: n/a

i am trying to build a kind of very, very simple ritch text editor for
people to use with a very simple
at the moment i am working on the basic structure.

the text is put in an iframe.
then a hidden textfield gets the value from the content of that iframe.
then the hidden textfield is sent to a php-page so it can be put in a

the problem is: the information from the hidden textfield is not in the
$_POST array on the php-page.
(there is no name/value)
the other information is ok. so the problem is with the javascript.
the information from the iframe is in the hidden textfield (i have tested it
with 'alert()'), but the hidden textfield is not
sent with the form.

does anyone know why the name/value of the hidden textfield is not sent with
the other
information of the form?

i already found the answer.

i had put the functioncall, to make the hidden textfield, outside the
<form></form> tags,
so it was not a part of the form.
