I'm going to try and clarify some things and then if I need to drop from here and go to easy400, I will.

First my program is loosely based on an article by Jay Oswal(A business-Quality RPG Web Application) in Iprodevoper.com Also linked to here.

http://nebula.wsimg.com/81237fbf24a2c79838349393b56bb1b9?AccessKeyId=A9AB1C330F5311638C82&disposition=0&alloworigin=1

Secondly, to explain a little bit of what I'm trying to accomplish.
I'm creating a calender program to help keep track of when tapes were used. We have a tape inventory program now but the main user would like to see historically where the tapes were and challenged me to make it look like a calendar.
I have this working in green screen, but now I want to see if I can get it working in a browser.
I'm using tables, but not in a 'GRID' like a subfile.
I can currently display the current month and the tapes associated with each day in the month.
The page up and page down are to scroll back and forth between the months.


Here is my little bit of javascript. It is condensed from the original

<script language="javascript" type="text/JavaScript">
function sbmform1()
{
document.Tape.Irequest.value = document.pressed;
if (document.pressed == "Pageup" ||
document.pressed == "Pagedown" ||
document.pressed == "Refresh")
{document.Tape.target="";}
else{document.Tape.target="_blank";}


The original javascript

<script language="javascript" type="text/JavaScript">
function sbmform1()
{
document.form1.Irequest.value = document.pressed;
if (document.pressed == "Pageup" ||
document.pressed == "Pagedown" ||
document.pressed == "Refresh")
{document.form1.target="";}
else{document.form1.target="_blank";}
document.form1.Iselkey.value =" ";
var nnn = parseInt(document.form1.Idsprows.value, 10);

if (nnn > 1)
{var i=0;
do
{if (document.form1.Iselect[i].checked==true)
{
document.form1.Iselkey.value = document.form1.Iselect[i].value;
break;
}
i++;
}
while (i < nnn );
}
else
{document.form1.Iselkey.value = document.form1.Iselect.value;}

}

Firstly you probably need the easy400 forum rather than the web400 forum.

That aside, /%orequest%/ is a replacement variable that gets set by the RPG program (by updhtmlvar) when it delivers output to the browser. It does happen in reverse. So, assuming lrequest is on the form that gets submitted when the button is pressed, what is your JavaScript doing to set the value of the lrequest input field?

What does the JavaScript look like?

Raul,
Thanks for the info. I think if I understand correctly, I am doing that.
I have a section in my form like this.

<input type=hidden name="Irequest" value="/%Orequest%/">

The javascript variables do not get passed to the RPG, you need to put the value in an input field or in the URL that calls the rpg program.

I am trying my first meaningful program with CGIDEV2.
I have it populating the first screen of the HTML, but I cannot get the response from the pageup or pagedown button to show up in my program.

I'm basing my program loosely on a sample I found from a few years ago.
The buttons are defined as SUBMITs and call a little javascript to determine if pageup/pagedown or refresh is pressed.

I can see that it is hitting the java script and the value of field Irequest is populated with 'Pageup'

But when I get back into my program and execute

Irequest = zhbgetvarupper('Irequest') ;

The result always comes back blank and I'm at a loss as what to look for.

Thanks

Mike


Ps, I'll probably have more questions as I work through this program.
