View Full Version : Form processing question (PHP preferred))

08 Mar 2006, 07:39 PM
(PHP Preferred - becuae that is what I am comfortable with, and it is supported on my clients server)

I have a client that needs a web page created that has 6 different <textarea> form fields that are sent to seperate scripts (hosted on another server as part of a paid service) when the submit button is pressed.

My original thought was to have the entire form sent to a scripted page (PHP by my choice) where I could break the data into 6 smaller pieces and then send it out. My problem is that I do not know how to write a form that will automatically be sent on page creation.

Does anyone know how to create a form that will send without a submit button being pressed? Or know of a resource I could dig through that might have that answer?

P.S. I am also posting this to the HTML forum. If anyone knows how to do this in straight HTML then I can write the PHP code to make it work.... or is there another solution?

try using javascript to submit the form on page load.
