Form

The submit button in the form I created is named "submit" and has a value of "Add". When the PHP script is executed, it checks if $HTTP_POST_VARS["submit] == "Add". The script runs and returns expected results if the form is submitted properly (click on the submit button). A problem arises when I click ENTER, say in a text box, since the variable $HTTP_POST_VARS["submit] is not sent to the PHP script. Is there a way to solve this?

What about using one of the variable names passed by the form?

their is a better way!

in your form tag add this

method="<?php echo $PHP_SELF; ?>?what=add"

then when the page gets processed

if($what == "add")
{

//process info here!

}
else
{

//display form!

}


their you go, if you have multiple values for $what then you can use the switch statment, but that doesnt apply here.

thats probally the best way
