err...what javascript the form is HTML?

<form name="<NAME>" method="get OR post" action="<?php echo $PHP_SELF?>">

Then in your page have a php tag that checks for the presence of $Find (in
your case), e.g.

if ($Find) {
  sql = (SELECT * FROM table WHERE $criteria = "value");
  then the rest...

Good day to all!

Consider the following code:

<FORM ...>
<INPUT type="Text" name="criteria" size="50">
<INPUT type="Button" name="Find" value="Find">

I want to get the text that the user writes into the text field into a php
variable to use it in the same page.
I want to use this text as a criteria to search for an entry in my mySQL DB
using a LIKE statement in the select.

Does anyone knows how to do it?

Thanx inadvance.
