Items Search Page Acts Different Browser to Browser?

Items Search Page Acts Different Browser to Browser?

Hello, I have created a beautiful new website using webassist and allot of help from Craig Rushforth. Now our site is live www.rainbowracing.com the search page is acting very strangely.
When viewing the search page using Safari on any of my Macs here, the page functions and returns item searches correctly. Now if I hop on over to any of the PCs in the office using Explorer 7 the page returns 155 items in my database regardless of what I type in for key word searches. I can use a name like Joe and it will return showing all items. On the Mac, if I type in Joe, I get a message stating that my search resulted in nothing being found and to try again, it works perfectly on the Mac and seems to have little function if any on the PCs. Why, oh Why oh Why is this happening? I have no idea what would cause this? PLEASE HELP!

This is an issue in internet explorer when using the button as a trigger. In small forms, internet explorer does not send the bitton as a part of the post. If the buitton is ussed for the trigger in the DataAssist Search behavior, it will not work

To work around the issue, use any form post as the trigger in the DataAssist search behavior.

Jason you are sooooo smart! Ok, so that sounds fantastic; So I am going to go into my items_search page and find the Form Post tag, change this to ANY FORM POST.... is it really that easy. I am going to try it now.

No, on the results page, double click on the Data Assist Search server behavior and set the trigger to any form post.

Well I guess it did seem easier than I thought. Is there anyway to hard code this by hand? I do not have a testing server set up on this machine and do not really want to hassle with it for one small line of code if possible. Can you please let me know if I can do this the old school way and change the code?

Thank you

yeah, it could be done by hand coding.



the trigger code should look something like:

php:
if(isset($_POST['Search_x'])) {



the any form post trigger could would be:

php:
if($_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST")     {

Well neither one of those lines of code are found in my items results or search pages? I do see however this line of code:

<form action="items_Results.php" method="get" id="WADASearchForm">

in the items_Search.php page? Where can I place this code snippet?

Sorry Jason, I thought I had it! Any suggestions?
