Gettigg Info from Entry Field

All form fields have an associated variable with it. So if they type something into the field, it will change the value of the variable to what was entered. Be warned up front that Netscape/IE and entry fields cause havoc (the clicking on a text HREF instance will trigger the HREF action BEFORE the entry field loses focus and updates the variable.) This is also true if you have an on keystroke action tied to the enter key, but the field still has focus (the cursor is blinking inside of it.) So, if you have to capture this scenario, have an action to call a javascript function called trivUpdateEntry() to make sure the entry field variable is updated prior to issuing the HREF action. This can be done by using a go to webaddress action with the url: javascript:trivUpdateEntry();Edited By: aaron on 38351.6963194444
