( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
i'm going crazy....can someone tell me what's going on here? my code:
print p("line 109"); print start_form({ -action => "$thisscript", -method => "post" }); print hidden('action','logout'); print submit('Logout'); print end_form; print p("line 115");
the resulting HTML:
line 109 </p> <form method="post" action="" enctype="multipart/form-data" +> <input type="hidden" name="action" value="login" /><input type="submi +t" tabindex="1" name="Logout" value="Logout" /><div></div></form><p> line 115

why is it assigning the value to the hidden input "action" as "login", when it should be "logout"??

i do have another conditional loop in the script that assigns the hidden input named "action" to the value "login", and that's why i put the silly print lines in to make sure i was not looping out to another part of the code inadvertantly...

any help appreciated, and my apologies in advance for raising such a ridiculous problem to great minds here, but i'm out of ideas!! (and stumped as to what could be happening) TIA

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
