Hi,

I have a simple html form which when submitted I want to popup a new window which I can control the size of. Further, in the popup window I want to be able to access the form data.

This is what I have done so far......

<form>
<input type=text name=email size=27>
<input class=button type="image" src="images/submit.jpg" onClick="window.open('send.php?subscribe=1', 'newWindow','width=300,height=150,'+'status=no,toolbar=no,menubar=no')">
</form>

When I submit the popup windows opens correctly and I am trying to access and output the two variables with php as follows:

$email = $_POST["email"];
$subscribe = $_GET["subscribe"];

echo $email $subscribe;

Only the 'subscribe' variable which is passed in the url outputs correctly. So my question is how do I accesss the variable input by the user into the form from the original page

Many thanks in advance.

Rob.
