    Asked by danielcondon on April 20, 2015 at 04:46 AM

    Hi,

    May I know more on how you would like to make your app work? Is your app more of a web converted to mobile app like version? Similar to PhoneGap, if your familiar with it?

    I would advise rather than stopping the thank you page, you could just format the thank you message. Rather than redirecting you to another page, it should give you an HTML output that you can modify.

     

    If you would still like to stop the redirecting, you could try using Javascript to send the post data, without being redirected or reloading the page. Here's what I'm familiar with. Use jQuery with ajax to send the POST data instead of using the <form> tags in the source code. Here's the documentation on that: http://api.jquery.com/jquery.ajax/.

    Although, I would suggest that you make further test to check that no data is lost, because you'll be manually sending the input fields using jQuery, and please do take note that when you are using the form's full source code, changes in the form using the online form builder will not directly update it, you will need to copy and edit the form's full source code again.

    I hope that helps.

    Kind regards.
