Can anyone tell me why this code is working fine in Firefox but not in Internet Explorer? I need to be able to send a form to two different target pages in function if the users click on standard submit button or another button that changes the action of the form:


<form id="edit_Content" name="edit_Content" action="boto.asp" method="post">
<input name="name" type="text" />
somewhere in your form, you have a button:
<input type="button" value="Save" onclick="document.edit_Content.action='boto.asp';document.edit_Content.target = 'blank';document.edit_Content.submit();" />

</form>

Why don't you just post the form to your asp page and use your server side scripting to post the data to the 2nd page?

try this...

<script>
function doPost(){
document.edit_Content.action='boto.asp';
document.edit_Content.target = '_blank';
document.edit_Content.submit();
}
</script>

<form id="edit_Content" name="edit_Content" action="boto.asp" method="post">
<input name="name" type="text" />
somewhere in your form, you have a button:
<input type="button" value="Save" onclick="javascript:doPost()" />
</form>

Try mod <input> button properties as below:

<input type="button" value="Save" onclick="document.edit_Content.setAttribute('action', 'boto.asp');document.edit_Content.setAttribute('target', 'blank');document.edit_Content.submit();" />
