If you do not pass at least one parameter with the HTTP Post action, it is possible for the server side script to not execute. Ensure you pass at least on parameter, even if your server side script is not expecting a parameter.


If no variable has been declared to contain the return value (even if there is no data returned from the script), the HTTP Post action will silently fail in DHTML (i.e. no error message will appear). This behavior only exists in the DHTML version of a course.
