I've got some JS that gets the page title like so: document.write (document.title)
I've got a form with a hidden field like so:
<input type="hidden" name="linktitle" value="HELP"></form>
How can I get my JS to execute in the value part (where it says HELP)? I've tried numerous methods and none have worked. Any ideas? Thanks!
you can't execute the value of the hidden form field, but you can reach it via:
Thanks for your help. Could you clarify a bit for me on how to implement that with form? epsd
Okay, I see now what you were saying. So I tried this
document.formtwo.linktitle.value = 'document.title';
formtwo is the name of the form, linktitle is the name of the hidden field. However, the returned value is then document.title and not the actual title... I tried it without quotes and got nothing. I also tried:
an it returned nothing. What am I missing?
I'm trying my best to understand what it is you actually want to accomplish but I just don't get it. Something like this? Why would you want to do that?
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd"> <html> <head> <title> This is my title </title> </head> <body>
<input type="hidden" name="linktitle" value="HELP" /> </form>
document.myForm.linktitle.value = document.title; alert(document.myForm.linktitle.value); </script>
I need to get the html page title into the value of a hidden form field which I then get via a POST when the form is submitted. Seems simple but I just can't get it to work. Trace
Did you try my example? It places the title in the hidden field. epsd
Yes, I tried it. I get a return of UNDEFINED. Fotiman
The window has loaded. Then the user presses the form button. The above didn't work...
EDIT- after some playing around with it (where to place it) it is working now. THANKS!
