onclick and assigning variables?

P: 1
I'm trying to create a link which passes variable data to form objects (text), and also submits the form with the onClick method.

In the head I have..

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. function submitter(one,two){
  2.    document.forms[0].emailaddress.value = one;
  3.    document.forms[0].officername.value = two;
  4.    document.forms[0].submit();
  5.    }
then the link is..
Email: [HTML]<a href="#" onClick = "submitter('', 'Joe Schmoe' ); ">Joe Schmoe</a><br>
the problem is that the string 'Joe Schmoe' is not being submitted, I only get the 'Joe' part. Any clues?

Perhaps it's the server-side where the problem is.

It looks like the space is interrupting the data submission which should not happen on any modern browser. Is this submit by change being defined as a GET instead of a POST? If so inserting a space into a GET HTTP request will interrupt it.

If nothing else works you might try encoding the data before sending it. Google can provide examples of how to do this.
