bezmond, thanks for your reply,
Yes, I have a text box where uses can submit to a database.
the page then reloads itsself and adds the submitted text to the database and thanks the user for the submission, but the text form box is still there.
How can i delete the text box so that only the thank you displayed.
I did not know if there was a simple cls, clear command or anything like that with PHP, i can not find anything.
And am sure there must be a simple answer.
Linking to a new page would not work as then the database would not be updated.
Thanks for any help you can give
