I pass a variable to new window and it works for me in this way.

[!--quoteo--][div class=\'quotetop\']QUOTE[/div][div class=\'quotemain\'][!--quotec--]
<form name="calculator" action="http://www.domain.com/calc.php" target="_blank" method="post">
...
[/quote]

but I want to make that new window with fixed width & height.
Can I do this?
Thanks.

not with php. you need to use javascript for that.

include this function..umm.. wherever.

Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)

You can do what you want with a javascript

Here is and example

place this after your <html> and change what you want for the settings
<script language="JavaScript">
popup_win = null;
function newwin() {
       popup_win = window.open('', 'popup_win', 'toolbar=no, location=no, directories=no, status=yes, menubar=no, resizable=yes, copyhistory=no, scrollbars=no, width=500, height=500');
}
</script>

in your form tag use this but change the action setting to the page you want
<form target=popup_win method="POST" action="mypage.php" onsubmit="newwin()">

Try it out
