Hi,

I have an HTML page that uses an iFrame to embed a webform.  When the user completes the webform they click a button that saves their information to my database.

I also want to do a Response.Redirect that redirects the parent form, not the webform in the iFrame.  How do you redirect the parent form?  I tried the following, but that just redirects the form in the iFrame:

Response.Redirect("http://www.ExecutiveDecision.biz")

Thanks!

Not by ASP, because ASP knows nothing about frames. So you have to use (client-side) javascript. Send a file to the iframe with
<script>
top.location.href='newpage.asp';
</script>

sybe,

Hmm, ok.  Well, right now, I just have a button on the bottom of my form that is calling an ASP Script, like so:

<form method="post" action="scripts/asp/DocEPW_INSERT_IT_Result.asp" enctype="multipart/form-data">

How would I get it also to call some JavaScript?  Just create a JavaScript Function and add it to the action= statement like so:

<form method="post" action="scripts/asp/DocEPW_INSERT_IT_Result.asp;myJavaRedirect()" enctype="multipart/form-data">

The form needs at attribute target="_top, then it is posted to the window. I know that the attribute "target"for <form> has become invalid in XHTML, but ther is no good alternative, and browsers support it.

So if you use

<form target="_top".......>

you don't need no javascript.

sybe,

Ok, I am a bit confused as to how to implement:

<form target="_top".......>

Let's say I want to redirect the parent form page to 'http://www.ExecutiveDecision.biz', how would I do that?
