HTML forms - how to get the full address/parameters when submitted?
When a submit button on a form is clicked, the form does what it needs to with the relevant info but is there a way to extract the link or the config it uses when submitted?
the associated link of this (I think) would be http://www.site.com/page?action=doaction&name=NAMEINPUT.
<form method="post" name="Form1" action="/page">
<input type="hidden" name="action" value="doaction"/>
<input type="text" name="name"/>
This is rather simple but what I am working with is a bit more complex with checkboxes in the form that it checks.
I've tried to explain best I can, but really I just want to know what parameters are being passed when the submit button is clicked.

To see the submitted values in the query string like you suggested, you need to change your form method to get. That will pass the values after the question mark. Unless you have a good reason i wouldn't recommend passing values with the query string. If your using PHP to process your form you can still see what the values are by printing out the POST Array.
or an individual field

Yes as mentioned above you would need use some server side scripting. How do you want to record the data? Email, database etc?
