This should be simple but I can't work it out!

P: n/a

Hi, I am desperate to find an answer to this. I have submitted to man
forums and no one seems to know how to do this, but I know it
possible!

I need to create a situation where users can select items on a for
using either tick boxes or radio buttons and then click a button t
show ONLY what they have ticked on another page (or to PRINT ONLY th
items they have ticked boxes next to). One or the other - it doesn'
matter which.

Heres the important part. I don't want to use PHP or any databas
technology. It really should not need that. Someone mentioned that thi
is possible with Javascript. If you can help, please let me know! I a
going nuts here trying to work this out!

Incidentally - I don't need to involve cash transactions - this i
simply a form to tick boxes next to items - a bit like a survey - bu
without using Perl, CGI or anything like that.

Many thanks in advance

form4designers.com is a bad place to read comp.lang.javascript from
because their presentation of the group garbles the Usenet posts it is
derived from and they only report a fraction of the posts made to the
group, giving an incomplete representation.

forumj4designers.com is also a bad pace to ask javascript questions from
because their misrepresentation of the group, combined with deliberate
deceptions about the nature of the service that they provide, have
resulted in a level of resentment of forum4designers.com that will
negatively impact on anyone who decides to associate themselves with
that web site.

Many other sites provide superior web-based access to Usenet, and often
without distortion or omission, including groups.google.com (who also
provide extensive and flexible archive searching facilities). But the
best method of reading and posting to comp.lang.javascript is through a
news server via newsreader software.

In that case, you have proved that forums are of little use. What you
want is the Usenet newsgroup news:comp.lang.javascript. News articles
submitted with Usenet newsreader software in proper Usenet format, which
includes newlines representing a right margin of about 72 characters,
are likely to receive favourable attention.
I need to create a situation where users can select items on a form using eithertick boxes or radio buttons and then click a button to show ONLY what they haveticked on another page (or to PRINT ONLY the items they have ticked boxes nextto). One or the other - it doesn't

matter which.

One way would be to step through the form seeking selected items and
document.write a new page accordingly - you do not say whether the
original page is to remain); otherwise you can write explicitly to a new
window.
