Hello,

I have a standard form on a asp page and I need to have the option to send it to an alternate destination page. How can I do this? I've tried with a button that opens a new window but I don't know how to capture the different form values and send it to this new opened window.

Can anyone help me with this?

Thanks a lot and kind regards.

Oscar

just set the forms "action" attribute:

<scripr language="javascript">
    function submitData() {
         document.frmName.action = 'somePage.asp';
         document.submit();
    }
</script>

somewhere in your form, you have a button:
<input type="button" value="Save" onclick="return submitData():" />

Open in new window

That's great. Is there anywat to open it on a new window? I know that adding target="blank" on my original form it opens on a new windows but is there a way to do it with this alternate one?

Thanks a lot.

sure, just change the function to:

<script language="javascript">
    function submitData() {
         document.frmName.action = 'somePage.asp';
         document.target = 'blank';
         document.submit();
    }
</script>

Open in new window
