Html Textinput in Table Data

Our teacher want us to create a website that will recieve text from the user (textfield) and send it to table data and it need to be in


When i use
i input text in textfield the text and submit it the text that i enter is showing in table data at the same time its gone like in the text field i know that this is because of
when i remove the
the text is showing in table data.

Here is my code :

Name: <input action="f1.document.getElementById("first_name");" id="first_name" size="30" type="text" >

<button class="okok" name="myBtn" type="submit" value="Submit Data" onClick="ajax_post();">COMPUTE </button>


<td style="color:white;" id=f1 > </td>

in script

function ajax_post(){

var fn = document.getElementById("first_name").value;
var table = document.getElementById("f1");
table.innerText = fn;


That's because the button is 'submitting' the form, which is like refreshing to page in that it will clear the values.

You have to stop the form submitting, like this:

<form onsubmit="return false;">
