Php – Multiple submit buttons php different actions


I have a website started where I want to have 2 separate submit buttons, one of which will take data entered and do some calculations to it to display on the same screen. I've got this successfully working with:

<form id="form1" name="form1" method="post" onsubmit="" onreset="" action="programname.php">
<input type="submit" name="calc" value="Find Angle">

and then I use:

if (!isset($_POST['submit'])){
Do actions, display calculations}

Now I want a second submit button that still grabs the data they entered but then goes to a different address. Is there an elegant way to do this?

Best Solution

You could add an onclick method to the new submit button that will change the action of the form and then submit it.

<script type="text/javascript">
  function submitForm(action) {
    var form = document.getElementById('form1');
    form.action = action;


<form id="form1">
  <!-- ... -->
  <input type="button" onclick="submitForm('page1.php')" value="submit 1" />
  <input type="button" onclick="submitForm('page2.php')" value="submit 2" />
