    Default HTML Web Form Submit Button

    Hello.

    I have a table with 1 cell and 1 row and in it I have a name and comment section with a submit button and reset button. To the right I have an IFrame that is linked with a .cgi file displaying all the posted comments and it does show. My files all worked fine before, I just decided that I wanted the posting to display to the right in a frame on the same page.

    How can I get my submit button, or button to have its action and post not open a new window, but write to the .cgi file and display the comments to the frame on the right

    I can't figure it out, it keeps opening up in a new window and will not open in the frame to the right

    So I need the file to write the comments and name without opening a new window and update and display in the frame to the right.

    Any ideas?

    Couldn't you do an anchor and have your form process to the same page/anchor name within your frame?

    I'm just guessing....

    Here's a post I found:
    Posting Data Between Frames - Usenet Forums

    Don't know if it's accurate or not.

    Sounds like you have
    HTML Code:
    <FORM target=_blank>
    for it to pop in a new window.

    As for your frame, is it a frame, or an iframe?
    If it is an iframe, I name the iframe and the 'target' of the form becomes your iframe name
