This option provides a value that is passed directly to the server upon submission of the form (submit()). The submitted value is sent as a parameter of the same name (i.e. dbTable). If no value is provided, this parameter is not sent in the submitted data.

The value given is intended to give the server-side script extra information, specifically the name of the table being operated on. This means that a single Ajax script could control multiple tables, switching between each table as required by checking for this variable.
