Hi,

I've got this code to vote for a site and that loads ratesite.php:

<td colspan="2"><form action="ratesite.php?id=<? print "$qry[id]" ?>" method="post" name="rating" id="rating">
Rate this site:<br>
<select name="rating">
<option value="5" selected>5</option>
<option value="4">4</option>
<option value="3">3</option>
<option value="2">2</option>
<option value="1">1</option>
</select>
<input name="<? echo $_GET[id] ?>" type="hidden" id="<? echo $_GET[id] ?>" value="<? echo $_GET[id] ?>">
<input name="cmd" type="hidden" id="cmd" value="do _rating">
<input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Go!">
</form></td>
Although i am wondering if there is a way that i can make it so it opens a new windows and a windows that is roughly 200px by 200px in size, just so it's a little window. I dunno how to do this with it being submitted as a form. Any ideas/advice?

Thanks.

Peter.

the form element has a target attribute, just like links:

<form action="ratesite.php?id=<? print "$qry[id]" ?>" method="post" name="rating" id="rating" target="_blank">

that will open the form in a new window without any window controls.  in order to specify the height/width (and the other params), you may need some javascript fudgery to create the new window, change the target of the form to the new window's name, and then submit the form when the submit button is hit.

glad to help, come on back if you have problems doing the form submission javascript (opening window, changing target, and submitting).
