ok. i just need to know the syntax to send a variable to a hidden form field from within a function. i know it's simple, but my brain is fried already this week. thank you!

the field's name is "sendItems" and the form's name is "sampleform".

try:
document.FormName.FieldName = "SomeValue"

so it would be:

return document.formName.fieldName = "myVar"
?

why would you need to return anything? The statement document.formname.fieldname.value = "somevalue" assigns the text "somevalue" to the value of the field "fieldname" that sits in the form "formname"

No need for a return.

document.getElementById("FieldName").value = "something"

You'll need to give your hidden field an id, but this is better for cross-browser support.
