You can create target window JUST BEFORE submitting form, using JavaScript like shown below:

<html>
<body>
<script>
function openTarget()
{
  w=window.open("about:blank","mytarget","fullscreen");
}
</script>
<form target="mytarget" onsubmit="openTarget(); return true;">
<input type="submit" name="submit">
</form>

</body>
</html>

I think this may work.

<html>
<body>
<script>
function openTarget()
{
 w=window.open("a.asp","mytarget","fullscreen");
}
</script>
<form target="mytarget" onsubmit="openTarget(); return true;">
<input type="submit" name="submit">
</form>

</body>
</html>

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

You can use as part of URL Parameter something like..

<Form Name=frmInput Id=frmInput Action=a.asp Method=Post onSubmit=CheckIt()>
<Input Type=Text Name=txtInput1 Id=txtInput1>
</Form>

<Script Language=Javascript>
   function CheckIt()
   {
      frmInput.Action = 'a.asp?TextValue1=' + escape(frmInput.txtInput1.value)
   }
</Script>

By Including as part of Parameter, inside of a.asp you will say

<%

   sValue = Request.querystring( "TextValue1" )

%>

Instead Of

<%
   sValue = Request.Form( "TextValue1" )
%>

Does that make sense?

NOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!

To submit form to a.asp you should:

<html>
<body>
<script>
function openTarget()
{
 w=window.open("about:blank","mytarget","fullscreen");
}
</script>
<form action="a.asp" method="post" target="mytarget" onsubmit="openTarget(); return true;">
<input type="submit" name="submit">
</form>

</body>
</html>

You may also want to put a window focus() line in so that a.asp will come into focus if by chance it is already open.
Like so:

function openTarget()
{
w=window.open("about:blank","mytarget","fullscreen");
w.focus();
}
</script>

And you can set any window parameters in window.open call, like scrollable, status, tollbar etc.
