I'm using the form to make a selection from a select tag, and then pass the value on to a details page.
App connect is used to populate the page with data from a database. Once I have the form working I'll rebuild the rest of the page where App connect is used with 6 Server Connect queries, putting data from different data tables on different parts of the page.
Hello Bruce, App Connect handles the form submission itself, when inserted on the page. You cannot use your form to just post some stuff to some other page when using app connect, like you do this on pages with no app connect inserted.
App connect uses ajax to submit the form. When using app connect, you do not need to submit the form results to another page. you could do all on the same page. Usually you use app connect on a site built with app connect. I do not understand the idea behind using app connect on one page, and not on another? You could just store your form values into session/local storage/cookie vars, so that they are available on the next page, just like explained here: www.dmxzone.com/go/32875/working-with-sessions
I'm wanting to render results on a separate page, with a unique url that I can link to from elsewhere on the internet. The way I want to do this is with a query string. And in my own website I'm wanting to set up a quick jump menu using a select form field. But I can't do this with App Connect on the page as it disables the form submit.
Could you let me know how I submit a form with App Connect on it?
Hi Bruce, I got your idea now. The issue seems to be caused by the id of the submit button which is "submit".
Please just change its name and id to something else, and you should be able to post with app connect like that. However, this will be improved in today's update of App Connect, so that you will be able to use "submit" as an ID.
