Using cancel button to redirect users

Using cancel button to redirect users

Dear Jason
Question 1
How can I apply server behaviours to a button (say a ‘cance’l button) that will direct users to a page and it must work if the user has javascript disabled. I notice on your own site in the Update Account section userupdate.php there is a cancel button that works, even if javascript is disabled

I have used Dreamweaver onClick Tag Behaviour, but it doesn’t work if javascript is disabled.

Question 2
In my form created with CSS Form Builder how can I get a button or text to sit neatly beside the submit button – see attached buttons.pdf. The spans and list items are preventing me from doing this task.

Below is my code
<li class="formItem"> <span class="buttonFieldGroup" >
<input class="formButton" name="Clan_submit" type="image" id="Clan_submit" src="webassist/forms/fd_sharp_default/submit.gif" onclick="clearAllServerErrors('Clan_Sharp_Default')" tabindex="12" />
</span></li>
</ul>
</fieldset>
</li>
</ul>
&nbsp; &nbsp; <a href="welcomepage.php"><span>CANCEL</span></a>
</form>
</div>

1) use a link around the cancel button:

<a href="page.php"><input type="button" name="cancel" id="cancel" value="Cancel"></a>


2) put the link code right after the button code:
<input class="formButton" name="Clan_submit" type="image" id="Clan_submit" src="webassist/forms/fd_sharp_default/submit.gif" onclick="clearAllServerErrors('Clan_Sharp_Default' )" tabindex="12" />&nbsp; &nbsp; <a href="welcomepage.php"><span>CANCEL</span></a>


rather than outside the LI tag that contains the button

Jason, your pretty good. Simple when you know how.

Having said that, the cancel button does not work (you just remains on the same page) in Explorer 9. It work in Firefox, and Chrome - you are directed to welcomepage.php.

See code and stylesheet below:
<li class="formItem"> <span class="buttonFieldGroup" >
<input name="Clan_submit" type="submit" class="Sharp2" id="Clan_submit" tabindex="12" value="Submit" onclick="clearAllServerErrors('Clan_Sharp_Default')" />&nbsp; &nbsp;
<a href="welcomepage.php"><input type="button" value="Cancel" class="Sharp2" id="Cancel" name="Cancel" /></a>

IE 9 wont work with buttons in links. you would need to use a standard link for compatibility with IE 9:
<a href="welcomepage.php">Cancel</a>

Ok, I can live with that - but how do WebAssist manage to get their cancel button to work in IE9 on the their update page userupdate.php?

the cancel button on that page is not a form button, it is an image tag. the image used looks like a button.
