we will offer the possibility to download trial software directly from our site.
What I like to do is :
* when someone wants to download a trial, he gets a form which he has to complete and were the submit button is disabled
* after completing all the fields in the form, the submit buttom must be enabled and the form is submitted to our offices
* folowing the submission the page refreshes to the valid download link for the trial
* this way we can follow up who's downloading the trials.
Thank you for all the help I can get.
It will take server side scripting to accomplish the job properly. Whatever language you have available will need to accept, verify, and store the data that was given in the form input, and then direct the browser to the fulfillment page.
thank you for the respons, but is there a way in html to just disable the send button until all fields are completed? Possibly in java script? I cannot use server site scripting since our site is hosted by a third party provider and we do not have a webserver ourself.

If you must do it without server-side scripting (using an email address as the form action - yuck) then you simply need form validation code attached to the onsubmit event of the form. If validation is successful, it must open a popup window to initiate the download before submission proceeds. (Actually, since this would require the user's email client to open, it might work without using a popup.)
Without server-side scripting, this will be awful - don't bother!
