adding a hyperlink in HTMLFORM

Hi,

I have a report that populates a drop down box from the table. To do this, I am using HTMLFORM
and !IBI.FIL.HOLDNAME

example:

table file car
...
...
on table hold as hold1 FORMAT ALPHA
end
-HTMLFORM BEGIN
...
...
...
<table><tr>
<td>
Select CAR :<br>
<select name="CAR">
<option value="$*">ALL
!IBI.FIL.HOLD1;
</select><br>
</td></tr>
...
..
<tr>
<td colspan="2" align="center"><input type="submit" value="Submit" name="submit">
<input type="reset" name="reset" value="Reset"></td>
</tr>
-HTMLFORM END

This would give us the dropdown box with a Submit and a reset button after the drop down box.

What I would need is a hyperlink below the submit button when clicked should take me to a new html page.
I could do this using a button and when clicked on the button runs another focexec that has
-HTMLFORM.
What I need though is the link instead of a button.

Help please.

Thank you for your response. It works great. First solution is what I needed. However, if I need to open the URL in a window of specific size, I am using a javascript window.open function which is not working. Any ideas on how to open the URL in a window of specific size.

Call the JavaScript from HREF and call the program URL from the JavaScript. This way you can contrlol the size of the new window.

Your HREF will look like

href="javascript:runPrgorm()"

and your JavaScript may looks like:

function runProgram(){
var a1 = "http://xxxxx/ibi_apps/WFServlet?IBIF_ex=carinst";
var a2 = "&"+"IBIMR_random=" + Math.random();
var url = a1 + a2;
var winwidth = window.screen.availWidth-12;
var winheight = window.screen.availHeight-100;
s = "width="+winwidth+",height="+winheight;
t = "resizable=yes,scrollbars=yes,menubar=yes,toolbar=yes,";
u = "status=yes,directories=yes,location=yes,top=0,left=-2,";
window.open(url,"_",u+t+s);
}

Here you can modify the width and height anytime.

Hope this will help you!
