This cool little script makes a form submit in a pop up window, so the original page doesn't change. Thought it's very useful.
Note: I do not take credit for it. Found the script here:


Here it is:

<script type="text/javascript">
//I don't take credit for this script! Found it here:
//     ript2/form2popup.shtml

    function createTarget(t){
    window.open("", t, "width=600,height=550");
    return true;

</script> <form name="sampleform" method="POST" action="/cgi-bin/formsubmit.pl" onsubmit="return createTarget(this.target)" target="formtarget"></form>

Hope this is useful to some.

whats the gain in using this technique instead of just using the target="_NEW" attribute within the form tag itself?

The script allows you to customize the new window like dimensions and stuff. I find that essential. Dont' want a full size ugly window popping up.
