Would displayng the info in a simple read-only text field (that you toggle between read-only and read/write) do the trick? There's always DOM manipulation (in modern browsers) to totally rewrite portion of the page on the client-side, but that may be more than you are willing to get into. hth, bear
Definitely want static text which is later converted into an editable text field. At first I thought I would have a boolean that the button could change and then the page would reflect the changes. But it seems the changes were in, but the page did not refresh to reflect the changes. I take it that working with the DOM stuff would fix this?
Yes, changes to the DOM are reflowed to the page immediately wihtout a page refresh from the server. Another tactic could be to have both elements, the static text, and the text field, on the page with one or the other hidden via the "display:none"/"display:block" style rule. hth, bear
Well, I found the dom stuff about changing the form, but it looks a little dicey. Suppose my form contains the static text "please send me 1 banana". And the user pressed the button/link that I mention, so that the "1" then becomes an editable field. The DOM gives me access to the form to tweak input fields, but I need to grab hold of the text "1", remove/hide it, and then insert/un-hide the editable field. How?
