I've created a form for web, inserted a hospot button with the following command

@Command([Compose];"CHI" )

I went to properties of the button, then <HTML> tag, then Other, and wrote target=_blank

It composes the CHI form but within the same window.

any idea to open it in a new window ??

It is not possible using only standard Notes. You need to write some HTML and JavaScript on the form to do this.

HTML:
- create a button with an HREF to the form and a TARGET=_blank
- set passthru-HTML property
- code in its simplest form:
    <INPUT TYPE=BUTTON ONCLICK='window.open("../yourform?openform")'>

I tried to compose CHI through html .. by writing <INPUT TYPE=BUTTON .... but it didn't satisfy my need. got some problem with that... therefore I'm using a hospot button to compose CHI form. and need to open it in a new window ..

I'm sure there can be a way ..

Nope. Tell us what you did with an <INPUT> tage, and why it didn't satisfy your need. What's the problem?

To be more specific: an <INPUT> tag does not have a TARGET parameter. If you change it to any other hotspot that generates an <A> tag, then it will work, but you won't have a button :(

1983, It is right there...

In the hotspot property define the frame (on the first tab) as _blank. This will take care of creating the form in a new window.

sjef, you can add &BaseTarget=_blank to the url method that you mentioned to define a new window

Use
  @SetTargetFrame( "_blank" );
  @Command( [Compose]; "CHI" )

@SetTargetFrame was already in R5.

My proposal is to put this into onClick event of the button for the Web handler:
window.open('CHI?OpenForm')

But the Web handler is available only in R6.
In R5 you have to change the Button language from Formula to JavaScript.
Then you can enter the upper formula in onClick event:
window.open('CHI?OpenForm')
