Ive been look at ways of transferring data between pages, currently I use GET such as:-
window.location = "newPage.php?myVariable=myValue";

What I would like to do is use POST instead, however on reading up there is no way of posting data to another page and showing the result. I know I can submit a form to a page, and look at the data, but if I want to transfer my data to a new page (as a normal form redirects you to another page).

What I was thinking of doing is creating an element of a form, and submitting the form into a new page.

So, looking into this I thought I could use .submit() on a forms ID, however this doesn't redirect the form.

I know I could submit a form, and then put the returned string (html code) into a div on the current page, but would prefer to redraw the entire page.

Has anyone had any experience or idea how I can create a POST request, submit it to a page and then view the page completely?

Thank you
