One Search Page Redirecting to Two Different Result Pages

One Search Page Redirecting to Two Different Result Pages

Hi:

I would like to have a WADASearchForm redirect to TWO different result pages depending on the “Submit” button the user presses. How can that be done?

As it is, it seems that the code: <form action="-stuperf_DailyResults.php" method="get" name="WADASearchForm" id="WADASearchForm"> is sending the search data to the page -stuperf_DailyResults.php.

The task would be to have another submit button that sends the search data to the page: -stuperf_PeriodResults.php.

I have tried using a simple “onclick” statement on the second button and it works, but it only works ONCE. The subsequent searches only repeat the same results given the first time, regardless of whatever new criteria might have been entered on the search page.

How can one single WADAsearchpage be redirected to two different WADAresult pages depending on the button the user presses?

Thank you for your attention.

I think you should be able to add an onclick event to the button that changes the form action:

<input type="button" onclick="document.getElementById['WADASearchForm'].setAttribute('action','-stuperf_DailyResults.php');document.getElementById['WADASearchForm'].submit();" >

I entered the code. It creates the button but when I click it nothing happens. Any suggestions?

Attached please find a copy of the search page.

Looks like I had square brackets instead of parenthesis... it should be:

<input type="button" onclick="document.getElementById('WADASearchForm').setAttribute('action','-stuperf_DailyResults.php');document.getElementById('WADASearchForm').submit();" >

It works with the parentheses. Thanks. Now, how do I replace the button I have designed for the button your code created?

If it still doesn't work, please post a URL where I can debug the page live.

It works now. I just need to use the button I have designed instead of the button the code created. How do I do that?

Thank you for your attention.

Just add the onclick="" portion of my button to yours and change it from type="submit" to type="button"

I have to take that enthusiastic statement back. The results page is frozen with the first results it obtained. When I do a second or third search I always get the same initial results.

Sorry to say that some of the other features of the site are already in use by the school, but no performance records have been entered yet, so there is no way to test it live right now.

Just in case, attached you may find a copy of the search page. Thanks.

Actually, the results page is showing ALL the records and doesn't filter according to the selected criteria in the search page...
