How can an HTML page extract parameters passed through a form?
My question is should I convert two html pages to php pages, so the called page can access its POSTed parameters, or is there a way for a called html (.html extension) page to access posted parameters?
Here is my calling form. The called form, needs access to TransDesc (below), which is a text field.
A static HTML file cannot access variables that have been POST'ed to it. It can't even know they're there as they're sent to the server in the HTTP request, the server then deals with them and sends the HTML page in the HTTP response. They're 'consumed' before the page is even sent to the client.
In my opinion, php is the easiest way to go, and as far as languages go is pretty easy to learn and pretty intuitive.
You'll have to either convert them to PHP or use GET instead of POST, as GET parameters are accessible through window.location.href
