,
CAPTION
)

The cgilinknewwindow( function creates a domain independent link for another CGI action on the same server that opens a new browser window.


Parameters

This function has three parameters:

database – name of the database for the target URL. If "" then this is another procedure in the current database.

suffix – the rest of the URL, in other words, everything after the first ~.

caption – the caption for the URL. This is the text that the user will see on their web browser.


Description

This function is designed to be used in a CGI routine to create a domain independent URL for another CGI action on the same server that opens a new browser window. In other words, the link will continue to work even if the server’s domain (or IP address) changes, or if the database is copied to a different server. The end result is a complete <a> tag that can be inserted into the HTML being generated by the current CGI procedure.
