Form.action Property


Form.action Property---the URL for form submission


Navigator 2.0; implemented but nonfunctional in Internet Explorer 3.0




action is a read/write string property of the Form object. It specifies the URL to which the form data will be sent when the form is submitted. The initial value of this property is specified by the ACTION attribute of the <FORM> HTML tag. Usually, this URL specifies a CGI script, although it can also be a mailto: address.

You can set this property in Internet Explorer 3.0, but doing so will have no effect on how the form is submitted.
