Passing Form information to a new page after Update

Passing Form information to a new page after Update

I'm using CSS Form Builder and DataAssist to update my table. It's updating the table fine. The problem is, I can't get any form data to pass into the next page. It's blank.

So for example .. I have this inside my edit.php form element.

<input id="pawsid" name="pawsid" type="hidden" value="<?php echo $_POST['pawsid']; ?>" />
<input id="pawsname" name="pawsname" type="hidden" value="<?php echo $_POST['pawsname']; ?>" />

*NOTE: I have this same argument sending data to this page.

after the insert, it is going to my test.php page. I have this code to catch it.

<?php

echo $_POST['pawsid'];
echo $_POST['pawsname'];

?>

Any ideas why it's blank?

Thanks!

this is the way forms work. when a form posts, the posted data is available to the forms action page, once the action page is done loading, or redirects to another page, the form post is destroyed.

The froms post will not be available to the test.php page.

How would I then pass a variable to the next page? would it have to be a SESSION variable? I'm trying to avoid GET. -- I want to hide my parameter from showing in the URL.

Thanks again

yes, use a session variabel to pass it to the next page.
