A form with method="get" problem

A form with method="get" problem

A form with method="get" problem

I have an ASP that using this line to pass on the parameters:

<form action="DESC.asp?" method="GET" name="parmform">

When using this form, the following output will occur:


Since I want to pass on the input of this form to a Reportal Server, I need to add id=103 after the question mark after DESC.asp. Unfortunately, the id=103 is ignored when I use this:

<form action="DESC.asp?id=103" method="GET" name="parmform">

I thought I would just add id=103 as a parameter, but the = character gets converted to the web language of the equals sign.

Is there a way to still pass on the id=103 after the "DESC.asp?"

RE: A form with method="get" problem

The next line after your form tag should be this:


<input type = "hidden" value = "103" name = "id"> 

You will not see the hidden form element on the page but it will be use when you click the submit button.
