  2.                                             {

  4.                                                 newHTML='';
  5.                                                 for (var i = 2; i <= document.getElementById('numGuests').value; i++) {
  6.                                                     newHTML=newHTML+'<div style="float:left; left:0px; top:0px; width:100px; margin-top:5px; margin-right:10px;"><input name="guestNames" id="guestNames" type="text" value="Guest Name" class="lpWhite"  style="width:100px;"  /></div><div style="float:left; left:0px; top:0px; width:160px; margin-top:5px;"><input name="guestEmails" id="guestEmails" type="text" value="Guest Email Address" class="lpWhite"  style="width:160px;"  /></div><div style="clear:both;"></div>';

now the problem is, if i choose 4 guests in the field and the form generates for me 4 fields to fill in.

only the last field's information will show in the email sent.

if anyone could help out that would be great.

Thanks.

It's because if you generate 4 fields, they are all having the same id (and name), so when it is sent to the form handler, it will only take the latest id (which will always be thelast field with that id).

What you need to do is change your form generation to also increment the id's and name's of each field.

Hi,
You can use Array for name attribute to get all the values on other page...
simply make name="somearray[]".. and on the next page use foreach loop to get their values...

You must make guestNames an array. You do that by specifying square brachets in the input name, like
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. name="guestNames[]"
.Then when you e.g. enter 4 names on the form and submit, your POST-subarray looks like:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. [guestNames] Array
  2.              [0] name1
  3.              [1] name2
  4.              [2] name3
  5.              [3] name4
The same applies of course to the addresses.

One way of getting the names out is in case you want all names in one 'to' string is to implode the array like this[php]$to_string=implode(',',$_POST['guestNames']);[/php].

{
echo "$_key - $_value<br />";
