bookmarks using perl

Hello !

I have web page that has some radio buttons on it and when the user clicks on it it runs a perl script and gets a value for each button clicked( no problem). But after I have the value of the button I want to jump to a hypertext link (bookmark) within the same page. Is this possible? What is the command to do this?


RE: bookmarks using perl

Hmmm...  This may be a bad hack for your problem, but it'll work:

When the user clicks the button, make it re-load the page with a deal like:

<a href = "http://www.thePage.com/page.html#section";>

This should do it, you can get a good tutorail about sections and stuff at http://www.about.com on html if you don't know that (I'd imagine you do).  I don't know if you can do it without following a hyper link.  If it's a large page with pics and stuff, they should be cached, so the second time it should load much faster...

Good Luck

As always, I hope that helped!

Thanks for your response but if I reload the page i'll lose the info on the form thats already been entered won't I? I guess i'll have to use plain old hypertext bookmarks. But thanks so much for your response.

Please disreguard my last message it's worked just fine!
Thanks Again


RE: bookmarks using perl

Javascript would be much more efficient for this purpose than using perl and rewriting the page.

I LOVE perl, but I use Javascript for things like this too.
