Switching between windows

P: 137

I have a website wich requirs login.
When you have the main page (say fulscreen) and click on the login button, he opens a small window and asks for your login name and password.
When it's filled in and the user presses 'login' this small window closes and the other main window should login to the right page.

Sofar i used the <input type="button" name="login" value="login" onclick="self.close()" />
And in the login form is <form method="post" action="/repair/index.php" target="_self" />

But it doesn't work that way i discovered....:(

Any suggestions?

I don't believe that this is an HTML/CSS issue. It does sound like it would require some ajax to achieve what you want. I am moving this thread to the JavaSprit/DHTML forum. If my assessment is not correct a moderator can move to the proper forum.

The target should be the parent window and you should use a submit button to submit the form.
