Directing server php return page

P: n/a
Don
How do I have the server-side php script open up a new client window, rather than having it return
to the client page that invoked the php script in the first place? I want to preserve the original
client page. Or if I could do it, better yet, is there a way to have the php script return to the
same window, but a new page, thereby preserving the original client page?

Thanks for your help,
Don

You can't open a new window from server-side.

You would have to link to the page using the TARGET="_newwindow" inside
the <A HREF="...."> tag. The TARGET also works for FORM tags.

If you wanted the page to open a new window once it had been loaded,
you'd need to do some javascript.
Such as <BODY onLoad="window.open('http://....','','');">
