Hi !
I have a web page that contains a form. The form includes a texterea and a flash object describing a keyboard.
Each button on the keyboard is in a matter of fact a <a href> tag.
I can not chabge the object...:(
Each button on the keyboard sends a number that represents a letter.
What I need to do, and have no idea how to do it, is:
Creat a function that recives the form and the correspanding number, checks the number and add the correct letter to the texterea in the form.
Really need you help... :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

You "need" to? This sounds like schoolwork -- which in itself is no big deal. Just let us know if this is for school or not so we can stay within the guidlines of this forum when helping you.
