submit form data to a new window failed using HTTP POST

The following program submit a FORM DATA to a new window using HTTP POST,
and postprocess.asp couldn't get the form data. If I do in GET method and
pass by
query string in windowURL, then it works. But I need HTTP POST method, are
any workarounds?

<script type="text/javascript">
function checkAndSubmitF orm(theForm)
var windowURL = theForm.action;
window.open(win dowURL, "newWin",
"scrollbars=0,m enubar=0,toolba r=0,location=0, status=0");

<FORM NAME="formname" method="POST" action="postpro cess.asp">
<P><input type=text" name="username"/>
<P><input type="button" name="submitBtn " value="Submit Form"
onClick="checkA ndSubmitForm(do cument.formname )">

postprocess.asp is just one line statement to get the form data
<%= Request.Form() %>
any ideas? please help!! thanks!!

No. Post the data from page A to page B in the same window. Page B processes
the data and uses client-side code in the onload event to open a third page
(C) in a new window, closing the original window if you don't want to have
two windows open.

Some popup stoppers will need to be configured to not interfere in this

An alternative would be to use XMLHTTP to post the data to page B,. and when
you get the result, open the new window.

You are not getting a lot of response to this question because:
1. You asked it during the weekend
2. It is off-topic. Only client-side code can be used to open a new window,
and ASP is server-side technology

Hello all, I want to use the POST method to submit the form and then grab the parameters in the asp file with request.form("parm"). The problem is that I am using the _search target to open the asp page. When I use _blank target there is no problem, either I use GET or POST method. But when I use _search target, only GET method works.

Hello, My HTML form submits some values to a hidden iframe. However, this is done for file upload fields only. After file uploading is finished I am using this form to submit all other data (inputs, textareas, etc.) normally. The file upload mechanism is structured in the way that it sets form's enctype (multipart) and target to iframe dynamically and then resets to old values right after submit() method. This works ideally in most...
