getting value from form?

Hi James,

I have a form which contains a text_area. I would like to be able to access the text in the text_area without submitting the form

when the form is submitted, the users changes in the text_area are saved.

I'm confused by these two statements. What exactly do you mean by 'without submitting'? Why don't you want to submit the form? It will probably help if you can describe what you're trying to accomplish in terms of 1) what happens on the server, and 2) what the visitor sees in their browser.

Best regards, Bill
