I have an HTML form where I use several differnt button to trigger
different actions, e.g.
<input type="Submit" NAME="action" VALUE="Open">
<input type="Submit" NAME="action" VALUE="Close">
The problem with this approach is that if the script that processes this
has hard coded values "Open" and "Close", then the form can't be altered
to support a differnt language. Is there a way for a submit button in
HTML to display differnt text than what gets submitted to a SCI script?
You can do the equivalent in a drop-down menu select control like this:
<option value="Open">Any display text here
<option value="Close">Any display text here
I know that the script can be made smarter and not use hard coded
values, but I am hoping that there is an easier way. Any suggestions
would be appreciated.
