I have a page that loads data from several databases. It uses InlineAction tags to do this. Now, on the same page, I have fields that can be edited. The fields are from several databases. How can I edit multiple databases with one submit? I am aware their might be a way to do it using InlineAction tags, however I have no clue what the syntax would be. Could someone please help me???

Thanks!!

You could try Javascript to submit more than one form. Instead of using input submit types use a button type as such:

<form name="myform1" .....>....<input type="hidden" name="-edit"></form>

<form name="myform2" .....>....<input type="hidden" name="-edit"></form>

<form name="myform3" ....>....<input type="hidden" name="-edit"></form>

<input type="button" onclick="subforms();">

In the <head> try this function:

<script>

function subforms() {

document.myform1.submit();

document.myform2.submit();

document.myform3.submit();

}

</script>

</head>

I've never tried this, however it is worth a go!

All the best.

With Lasso it is possible to do this using -Nothing action, form params, variables and inlines, it allows you to create ASP-ish solutons.......i am somewhat supprised that Filemaker haven't included these features in the CDML tag set for the 5.5 upgd as it makes many CDML problems a bit of a no brainer.

tummah2 did you get the Javascript to work?

I've been messing with it for a few hours, and can't get anything to work.

Scratch, how much work is involved in moving to lasso?

Costs?
