HTML SUBMIT (or <a href>) to execute a PHP file without losing focus of current web page
Posted on 2007-08-06
I want to have a SUBMIT button that does the submit action, but leaves the current page unaltered, so the viewer can continue down it.
The only thing i can think of is using the TARGET='another_window'
but that changes focus to that window, otherwise seems to work fine.
any suggestions for how to accomplish this? (i.e., executing a PHP routine from clicking a submit (or link) but not disturbing the current page nor current focus.)
