hi,

i'm trying to pass a variable using POST method:

<form id="frm1" action="lobby.aspx" method="post">
<input type="hidden" name="userid" id="userid">
</form>

<script language="javascript">

function goLobby (id) {
      alert(id);
      document.all ["userid"].value = id;
      document.close();
      all ["frm1"].submit();
}
</script>

the goLobby function is invoked from flash movie clip (using getUrl), which pass an id as parameter.
the laert popup is being displayed ,however, nothing happens afterwards.

any ideas?
