    Javascript Form Question


    I hope someone can help me with this question. I have a form on my site that submits the details through to paypal of a persons name and address and how many tickets they want for an event so they dont have to fill in their details again when they reach the payflow screen. Unfortunately the person that deals with setting out the table plans and creating the bookings for the event doesn't have access to paypal to see who has bought a ticket. she only receives this information weekly. What I was wondering is if there is any extra code I can add to the code below that I can also send the details from the form to an email address as well as then onto paypal. This means when the person clicks the submit button the page will go the the payment screen pre-populated but also send a copy to the event manager.

    <form name="contact" onsubmit="validate(this, 'post', 'https://payflowlink.paypal.com ')" action="javascript:;" method="post" id="contact">
    <input type="hidden" value="garydonnelly" name="LOGIN">

    You can't do it with JavaScript.

    The only way to do that is to have the form call a server side script that first sends the email and then passes the information to Paypal.

    Don't forget to start your JavaScript code with "use strict"; which makes it easier to find errors in your code.
