forms and variables
hello all, my problem is that i would like to set the value of a test field to the value of a variable i got from a cookie. when the page loads and there is no cookie value set i assume that the value should come in null. if there is a cookie value set, then i would liek the text feilds value to be that. am i correct in this thought pattern? this is the dcript i have so far below. i get an error when the page loads,
at this line i get an error that i am missing a ")" around 'name'.
can anybody solve this perplexing problem? kudo's to those that can, help me please!!
<form action='WSmainframe.php' method='GET' target='mainframe' name='cart3form'>
var name2 = getCookie('name');
window.document.cart3form.name.value = name2;
document.write('<td width="60%" align="left"><input type="text" name="name" maxlength="40" size="31" onChange="setCookie('name', this.value)"> </td>');
I can see a problem with your references
document.cart3form.name pulls a reference to the name attribute of the form -- not the element with the name "name". So, two fixes
1) Change the name of the element
2) Change the reference to this
I highly recommend solution #1.
