    Pre Populatated Fields

    I am building website to sell books. When the customer click on the Buy now button on a certain book (ie Spiderman) I want to direct that buyer to a form that I have built. But I want the form to automatically populate the name of the book or image that the customer clicked on. Can you help me with the coding?

    Hi there. Welcome to the forums!

    If you need to transfer data from one page to another, you have quite a few options. However, overall, you will probably need to learn a 'server-side language' to process the details.

    These include PHP, ASP, Perl/CGI and Jscript. I would recommend php ( www.php.net ) as it is easy to learn.

    An example piece of code, using php -

    PHP Code:
    <input type="text" name="ChosenItem" value="<? echo $_QUERY['iChoose']; ?>">
    This would take a querystring and populate the field with it. A query string is data passed along in the link like this -

    Hope that helps.
