ecart replacing input submit with a a different html tag

Hey there, I am coding a new ecommerce website and I wondered if there is an obvious/easy solution to replacing some of the trigger events that are by default based on form input submit tags. For example of the ecart cart page, replacing the continue shopping/update/clear/checkout input submit buttons that rely on the below code by default:

php:
<?php

// WA eCart Update
if (isset($_POST["eCart_Update_100"]) || isset($_POST["eCart_Update_100_x"]))     {
  
$eCart->CartUpdate();
  
$Redirect_redirStr="";
  if (
$Redirect_redirStr != "")     {
    
$eCart->redirStr $Redirect_redirStr;
  }
  
$eCart->cartAction "Update";
}
?>



Some tags that I may want to use is an SVG tag code that forms a button. or even an <i></i> that uses a glyphicons font to display a clickable icon. or simply text?

Regards

Chris

you could set the button or glyphic to use a link and pass a URL variable:

<a href="cart.php?eCart_Update_100=1><i>Update</i></a>


then change the trigger from POST to GET:
if (isset($_GET["eCart_Update_100"])) {

I tried that Jason and it didnt work. I wonder if its because in the a href its waiting for a condition eCart_Update_100 to be equal to 1 and in te isset($_GET trigger it will never see the condition equaling to 1.

isset is just checking that the variable has a value, it doesn't matter what the value is.

send a link and ftp information where i can see what you have tried to troubleshoot.

Yeah, in actual fact this is going to be trickier than i though..

the default buttons preform a form submit. it's not just the trigger that is needed, it is all the other post information from the form.

I think the only way to do this would be to create a form submit javascript on-click event.

However, that will be a little tricky with the cart display page since each of the buttons tigers a different section of code, so it's not a generic submit but a submit triggered from a specific button.

I think you would be better of using the standard submit buttons or image form elements. you can use CSS to style them if you like.

Hi Jason. yeah totally understand. initially I was thinking a javascript onclick event but I want to make sure if there was a more simple approach that im overlooking :) Actually I learnt today (Didnt know much about it before) the SVG can be created in Illustrator to create a scalable image and then I could use that as a CSS background...then styling the submit button with that. :)
