how to invoke javascrupt openwindow from html <form>
I want to go to a new window from a form, but I don't see how to position the JS so the parameters are passed.
This doesn't work:
<input type=hidden etc.></form>
How can I pass the <form> parameters?
These really don't answer my question. I know how to open a window.
My questions was how to do it from a <form>. I.e. how to get the <form> parameters properly associated with the open function? Thanks.
You seem to have a way that works
and another that does not.
What do you believe would be the advantage to use a <form>?
Why do I want to use <form>? Because what I'm doing requires <form>, requires input data. How else would I do input data without <form>? I can open a new window via <a href> but then I wouldn't have input fields. I do not have a way that works. Is there an answer to my question?
Show some code or provide a live link to your problem.
Perhaps there is a better way to accomplish your desire.
You can open an existing site with an included form (with inputs).
You can create a page with the form and inputs on the fly.
I don't understand your need to do it via a submit event.

Do you really not understand why anyone would want to go from a <form> directly to a new window?
It's very simple - the form asks for parameters to be used in generating the new window.
My specifics don't matter. Just answer the question of how I go from a form to a new window - with parameters from the form. Envision a simple form that gets one input and wants to open the next script in a new window passing the input. That's all I need. If it can't be done, tell me that.

Sorry, thought I was clear. By parameters I mean the input from the form used by the subsequent application. This application is about dog shows - to give you context, lets say a small window asks "what states do you want to see shows from?" and it loads a big window with a list of dog shows in the indicated states. (It's much ore complex than that, but I'm trying to keep the example simple.)
I don't need help with the JS-level parameters you mention above.
So, to help me wrap my pea-brain around this, and to extend your analogy, let's assume you have a list of all dog show in the USA in 2014. You would like a user to input via your form "I want to see all the dog shows in Idaho in February 2014" (just an example), and have your results window/page open with all those dog shows. Is that a reasonable representation of what you want to happen?
Yes - but the application really isn't the issue. Don't try to suggest different ways to do my application!
Can't someone just answer the question of how to go from a <form> to a new window with the form parameters (<input>, submit, select, radio, hidden, etc) passed properly? Give me just a simple example with one parameter.
The reason I asked the stupid question is
Thank you, I have given up trying to communicate with this guy!
This is the mostly used way. As
