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.

hi,

this just involves some simple javascript. in the head:

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

and for the button:

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

echo"<input type=\"button\" onclick=\"window.open('testpage.php?var=newvar');return false\" value=\"open\">";
echo"</form>";
?>
