    submit() - timing problem

    I wrote this very short php page to test the javascript function submit(). <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//IETF//DTD HTML 2.0//EN"> <html><head></head><body> <form id="myform" action="<?php echo $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']?>" method="post"> <input id="myinput" name="myinputname" type="hidden"> </form> <?php echo "<pre>Content of \$_POST\n"; print_r($_POST); echo "</pre>"; echo "<a href=\"\" onclick=\"examine('Hello')\">examine</a>"; ?> <script type="text/javascript" > function examine(parametre) { document.getElementById('myinput').value = parametre; document.getElementById('myform').submit(); } </script> </body></html> When the "examine" link is clicked, the submit function is executed, but after the "action" has reloaded the page, the $_POST array is empty ! If I put a breakpoint on the submit function (using the debugger of my firefox browser) and then step over that function, the $_POST array is OK. I try to understand why this behavior occurs. Is it a timing problem ? The same with the other php page here attached. Thanks for any advice. submit-test2.php
