Subject Mod_perl not receiving changed made by JavaScript: bug
Date Thu, 08 Apr 2004 16:12:08 GMT
I look at the bug report no where to find an entry for this bug.

I am using Apache 2, mod_perl2 with RedHat 9.0
Everything is working find.

Using Apache::Registry for CGI scripts.

I have toy form with a few fields, One field can register changed made 
to other fields.
This changed_field is dynamically generated.

One submit, the value of the changed_field is not properly submitted to 
the perl program
if using mod_perl. 

Either it says it is not changed or it will receive the changed state in 
previous submissions.

It looks there is some caching going on in the http server.

This problem goes away if the perl program is run under CGI. 

I am not sure you have seen this one before.  Or there may be a 
configuration error in my


here is my JavaScript, it should work with any form

<script language=JavaScript>
function addhandlers(f) {
   for (var i = 0; i < f.elements.length; i++) {
      var e = f.elements[i];
      e.onchange = function() {
         if (this.form.changed.value == "")
            this.form.changed.value =;
            this.form.changed.value += " " +;
   f.onsubmit = submit();

You can write a simple server-side perl script to receive information 
from the form.
