Re: Forms suggestion

It looks like no NAME=VALUE pairs are returned for 'submit' entries
in forms, so it seems to be impossible to do something like:

<INPUT NAME="entry">
<INPUT TYPE="submit" NAME="action" VALUE="Ok">
<INPUT TYPE="submit" NAME="action" VALUE="Cancel">

For some applications it would be interesting to be able to see if
such a form was submitted
- via a return in the text field (ie. no action= binding or no value)
- via the Ok button (action=Ok)
- via the Cancel button (action=Cancel)

Is it possible to do something like that?
I remember I have seen a form with just one submit button, and
select-options to define the action..

On a somewhat related note: how do i submit a form in lynx?
I can edit the fields, but how can i submit??


PS: passing 'state information' from one form to another via the URL,
as suggested earlier in this thread, works fine.
