Hi all,

I have a form and have some values in the form ..



When the form is submitted in the address bar all these parameters are shown.Is there anyway to hide these parameters?

Thanks

You should use POST instead of GET, and make those parameters hidden input fields.

Hi,
you can use HIDDEN input tag.
e.g

Setting window.location is different from calling form.submit(). The former will always do a GET, while the latter -which is what the code you posted is doing- will use whatever the form's action attribute is set to.

The only way to keep parameters out of the URL is to use POST. So if that's the paramount requirement, then you'll need to adapt the code that's forcing you to do a GET.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
