Showing results for tags 'auto-submit'.
Hi, Does anyone know if it's possible (and then how) to make a submission form invisible so the user doesn't see it at all (and not the 1 second flash normally with auto-submit)? I have one submission form that passes a parameter (after submit) to another submission form (that has js auto-submit code) so that the new autoID value from the first submission form can be pasted into a new record in a different table (via the 2nd submission form). I have to do it this way instead of using a trigger on the 1st submission form's table because of back-end sql triggers locking the table and not being able to use front-end triggers. So this is a workaround. It's really clunky and time consuming for the user to have the 2nd submission form open and 'flash' (whether the time interval is set to 500 or 1000 it still is ugly) before auto-submitting. I was hoping there'd be a different way to deploy the 2nd submission form, maybe in a web page that's on the server but doesn't 'show' or something like that. Any ideas? Thanks!
