View Full Version : Multiple forms on one page and updating

01-09-2004, 01:15 AM

I want to know how I can update a field in another form.

For example. If I have a webpage with two forms on it. I have a name field on form1. When I submit form1 I want it to process that form but also update a textarea in form2 with the content of the name field from form1.

I know if I wanted to use a drop down box to update a field in the same form I can do something like:

<select name="common" onchange="this.form.headline.value=this.form.common.options[this.form.common.selectedIndex].value;this.form.common.selectedIndex=0">



Is it similar if I want to update a field in another form on the same page?

I hope I have explained it clearly and that this is the right section for such a query. Any help is appreciated.

Thank you

Perhaps this is better posted in Javascript section. I have a thread opened there.

(It was me being silly, I'm not spamming my query over several sections deliberately)
