Hi Monk,
I have a cgi perl script in which I have the following HTML form data embedded. Please let me know how can I retrieve the "StatusFilterSelect" value through cgi object

<form name="frmStatusFilter" method="GET" action=" +:8010/cgi-bin/"> Choose Filter:<select name="StatusFilterSelect" onChange="frmStatusFil +ter.submit()"> <option>Show with status</option> <option>Show all</option> </select> </form>

I am trying with the following, but not working Please help. Thanks in advance.

my $q = new CGI; my $status = $q->param('StatusFilterSelect'); $q->html("status is $status"); ## not showing any value

$status is not showing anything. Please assume I am not making any syntax error. Is this how to extract the value in chi perl. Is my approach right?

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
