Javascript submitting a form within a method#1
I have a method which prints out the order of a set of images. I need to submit this to a new php page.

I have a form which currently prints out the order to the same page.

<form action="mainpage.php" method="post">
<div style="clear:both;padding-bottom:10px">

<input type="Button" style="width:100px" value="Show order" onclick="saveImageOrder()">


Saveimageorder() shows the image and it saves the order in a variable called orderString

function saveImageOrder()
var orderString = "";
var objects = document.getElementsByTagName('DIV');

for(var no=0;no<objects.length;no++)
if(objects[no].className=='imageBox' || objects[no].className=='imageBoxHighlighted')
if(orderString.length>0) orderString = orderString + ',';
orderString = orderString + objects[no].id;
document.getElementById('debug').innerHTML = 'This is the new order of the images(IDs) : <br>' + orderString;

How to do this?

Re: Javascript submitting a form within a method#3
You can submit the form with (note that this isn't tested):document.formname.submit();If you need to change the action (the page to submit to) first:document.formname.action = 'some_other_url';If you need to submit the form asynchronously you need to use a XMLHttpRequest or something similar.

Re: Javascript submitting a form within a method#4
with plain POST (no ajax) you need to store the result of your process (image order id retrieval) in an form field:<input type="hidden" name="imagesorder" value=""/>in your function, you can set the value to this field after the orderString is populated:document.getElementsByName('imagesorder')[0].value = orderString;then submit the form, you can do this by replacing your <input type="button" .../>with<input type="submit" .../>on the server side you will then get the value in the post collection (I'm not php dev)$_POST['imagesorder']

Note a typo on the last line.. It should be $_POST['imagesorder']
