How to open a new page when button is clicked.

Hi there. I need to know how to open a new page (with a variable passed) when a button is clicked. This button is not the main submit button on the form.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.


this just involves some simple javascript. in the head:

<!-- Begin
function openwindow() {'yourpage.html','mywindow','toolbar=yes,status=yes,scrollbars=yes,location=yes,menubar=yes,directories=yes,width=640,height=480')
// End -->

and for the button:

<input type="button" value="Open new window" name="open" onClick="openwindow(this.form)">
