Remote Scripting

I am looking for help from those who have used the "remote scripting". I am not even good at "scripting". Now, only "remote scripting" can help the problem that I have.

Is this the right forum to post "remote scripting" related questions?

All remote scripting is cmbining a server side language with a client side language.

What are you trying to do?

I have a web page that displays a drop-down menu and a textarea right below that menu.

The drop-down menu provides users with a list. The list comprises names of documents. Users select a document that they want to edit.

Once a selection is made by users, I have to search the database tables for that document and display the content of the document in the textarea.

It is much easier to show the content of the selected document in another web page. But, I do not have the freedom to do so. Once users make a selection from the drop-down menu, I have to display the content of the selected page in the textarea right down below the menu.

I think that 'remote scripting' talks about that it can be done. I am not even familiar with the 'scripting', not to mention about 'remote scripting'. I really need guidance and help.

You need to post the data back to the server and sill in the text area when you reload the page.

I think that I need a lot more help than the one sentence instruction.
