Looking for example to open multiple pages on same action

P: n/a
Hi,

I'm wanting to create a form that will take in some information, and
return 2 (or more) pages in new tabs. I didn't know if this would be
a better server side, or client side application. I'd like to create
it as a server side application, but I didn't see exactly what was
needed to call it out.

If someone has an example (in any programming language) of how to open
up 2 new tabs I'd appreciate it. Or any advice on how to accomplish
this would be greatly appreciated as well.

Thanks

More precisely, is there a way to specify a target window from a
server side CGI? I can't find any reference to one, so I may be stuck
with a javascript solution. I hope not.

Your browser has no idea what's going on on the server. It will only
respond to what it sees on the client side.

Follow-ups to comp.lang.javascript.

As far as I know it is impossible with a Mozilla-based browser for you
to force a new tab on a user's system. Tabs are under control of the
user, not your server or Web page.

Opening new windows/tabs can ONLY be done on the client...
Otherwise, if it were possible to do it from the server, you would
have NO way of preventing pop ups in your browser at all.
