Default how to submit a form and post java script variable

please i want ur help in this problem: a variable that must be sent in the button to a page and the button itself has to submit the form to the same page ?
i have this code :
<form name="frmadd" action="Partupdate2.asp" method="post">

<input type="submit" value=" Edit " name="cmdsave" size=70 onclick="window.location='partupdate2.asp?ID2=<%=r s("id")%>';">

this code doesn't make the submittion, it just redirect the variable to the page

The button can only do one thing. If you tell it to change the browser location when you click, that's what it will do, even if it's a submit button.

This isn't a very ASP.NET way of doing what you are doing.

You'd probably be better to use a regular asp button, do what you need when the form submits (in the button click handler) and then use Response.Redirect() to send the user to the new page.

I know I'm *real* late here but couldn't resist.
It looks like you want to put the QueryString variable in the action of the form.

<form name="frmadd" action="Partupdate2.asp?ID2=<%=rs("id")%>" method="post">

Alternatively you could just add a hidden form field which is what I usually do:
<form name="frmadd" action="Partupdate2.asp" method="post">
<input type="hidden" name="ID" value="<%=rs("id")%>">

Hey, maybe somebody will find it valuable:o)
