how to submit iframed form to top or whole window

I have a document with couple of iframes. One of the iframes has a
simple form. When this form is submitted
I would like to display the results in whole (top) window as opposed
to just in the originating iframe.

Form is submitted to a servlet which returns new html page.

How can this be done?

In case of links I can do this by either specifying "_top" target, or
this onclick handler:
top.location=th is.href;return false;

Works perfectly, but I can't make it work for form submit. I tried
executing this:
top.location=se lf.location;

both before the form submit and after, but neither works. I mean the
iframe does open in whole window,
but if executed before the submit, form will never get submitted, and
after the submit I lose the results.

Any help much appreciated.

As you can with forms.

Thanks, didn't know that. I actually searched for "_top" in the above
document,
didn't find it, and thought it's not supported.

Should have searched for "target" instead...

Hi there, My original window (A) opens a modal dialog window (B). In B, you fill out a form and submit it to itself for processing. When B reloads, it knows that is successfully processed the form and it suppose to close itself after returning "1" or "0" to A. My problem is that B will never close. When I submit it, it kind of opens a new window and close that one before

Can form.submit() submit another form? In the following example, in page1.asp, it is fine to submit the current form: form1.submit(), and and I could see the value "Joe" in page2.asp. However, if I do: form3.submit(), then it couldn't go to page2.asp. Any ideas?? Thanks!! //page1.asp <html> <head> </head> <body onload="form1.submit()"> //OK!

How does one go about submitting a form with a link - but submitting it to a new window AND to a page different to that described within the action="" option of the <form> tag? Say, for example, I have a simple form such as the following: <form method="POST" action="submit.php" name="AForm"> Name: <input type="text" name="Name" length="20"><br> Age: 15 <a href="age.php">change age</a><br> <input type="submit" name="submit"...

Hi, I have a struts form <html:form> in which although the focus rests on the submit button, hitting the enter key does not submit the form.

Hi I created a site which can be partially iframed (or framed).
