Internet Explorer
For the first time I started using the API form.
The form has 4 pages and on every page a check on the field input (validation).
It works fine on the Mac (Safari and Firefox), but in IE (tested in Oracle VM VirtualBox, Windows XP) the submit button on the first form page doesnot seem to work. Nothing happens. No validation, no errors, no next page. Is there a workaround for Internet Explorer to get it done?

See attachment for the code I used.

Thanks for a prompt reply.

Best, Sander

Hi Sander,

Sorry for the long response time! I was out of town for a few days.

No, there's nothing special you need to do for IE. If nothing happens, usually it means that you have a javascript error that's preventing the form from submitting.

However, in your case, it looks like you're using an image as your submit button. The problem is that IE doesn't add the name-value pair in the HTTP request for image submit buttons. It's dumb, but that's the way it works.

Instead, what you can do is add a hidden field to your form like this:

<input type="hidden" name="submit_ie_friendly" value="1" />

Then, in your PHP code, set the "submit_button" $param value to "submit_ie_friendly". That will let you keep your image submit button and still work with IE.

Hope this helps!

It is about a  internet explorer which is working only on packages system. This system have some special working effort which is important to start in this period. The given period is we also check only on packages system which is good enough for testing.
