Changing Type Value On Form

Hi when I change the button value on a form from <type="image"> to <type="submit"> the security codes on the form form no longer function properly. The codes no long capture any false values entered into the fields. Can someone explain why this is happening? Thanks

the trigger code used for a submit type and an image type is not the same.

a submit type contains a value attribute, where an image type cannot pass a value.

with a submit button type, the trigger code will be written as:
if (isset($_POST["buttonName"])) {

where $_POST["buttonName"] contains the value of the submit button element.

an image element doesn't have a value, it passes an x and y coordinate of where the image was clicked, so the trigger code for a submit button would be written as:

if you change the button type, you will need to edit any server behaviors to re generate the trigger code, or manually change the code to include the _x
