In the body of the page there is a typical form:
<FORM> <h2>Fahrenheit to Celsius Converter</h2> Enter a temperature in degrees F: <INPUT NAME="DegF" VALUE="0" MAXLENGTH="15" SIZE=15> <p> Click this button to calculate the temperature in degrees C: <INPUT NAME="calc" VALUE="Calculate" TYPE=BUTTON onClick=temp(this.form)> <p> Temperature in degrees C is: <INPUT NAME="DegC" READONLY SIZE=15> </FORM>
This line is key:
<INPUT NAME="calc" VALUE="Calculate" TYPE=BUTTON onClick=temp(this.form)>
This is a normal button control. When the user clicks it, it calls the function in the head of the page because of the onClick notation.
