form submital...

This may sound like I'm simple, but im going to ask anyway...

I have a form, that I want to put an image into as an image type.  On_click it opens a new window that has some text.  the new window itself closes on_blur.  My problem is that if I dont give the form itself an action, it submits to itself when the user clicks the input image.

<form name = 'myForm'>
<input type = 'image' src = 'fooBar.jpg' onclick = 'window.open('Cart.asp?prodID=1','cart','width=200,height=300')'>
</form>

I could probably write a script to do this (havent really thought about it), but I am not building the pages, just fixing them, and I have hundreds of these to change.  so for times sake I am really trying to minimize the changes I'm making to each individual page.  which is why i am using the form.

basically i just need to know is it possible to have an image input type that doesnt submit the form?  and without another anchor on it?

Thanks!

Hooligan,
Try this :
<form name = 'myForm'>
<img src = 'fooBar.jpg' onclick = 'window.open('Cart.asp?prodID=1','cart','width=200,height=300')'>
</form>

So the form won't submit while user click the image ...

<Input Type="Image".... submits the form

thats what it does

cant change that

If you dont specify an action in the Form tag it assumes its submitting to itself

You could write an onSubmit Javascript function to trap the submission and take control
