$HTTP_POST_VARS doesn't accept disabled input fields


Code:
<input type='text' name='total' size='5' value='22' disabled>
If I use a

$Total = $HTTP_POST_VARS['total'];

in my php script, I get a:

Notice: Undefined index: total in C:\Server\Apache2\htdocs\bloodaxe\checkout.php on line 3

But if I remove the disabled from the input field, it works ok, but then the field is enable to be tampered with again !

How can I get it to accept the variable while still keeping the field disabled?

Cheers !

In the above article it seems what you are trying to is not possible and it is not a limitimation of PHP, rather HTML. Instead of disabling the input you need to make it readonly.

I have not tested this, its just my interpretation of the above article, let us know if it works or not.

excellent,

On a side note you could use CSS to make the textbox appear disabled: grey background, etc if you wish.
