View Full Version : JavaScript and request object

09-29-2003, 05:54 PM
Hey there, firstly, is there a request object in JavaScirpt?

Want to post a form to my page but hiding the querystring, so thought of doing a form post - is it possible? (frames r 2 simple)

Is there an ActiveX control pre-installed on all browsers to work with the request object?

The more I think about it, the more I convince myself that there isnt, and shouldnt be...

Appreciate the help

Javascript can't read POST data. I find it highly unlikely that ActiveX can either, since POST information is received at the server and not sent back to the client.

Technically, GET data isn't either, but by the nature of it, it's available in the query-string which allows client-side scripting to access it.
