    Hi all [;)]
     
    I created a News manager with ASP
    in Post News Page I have 2 button first one "Publish" and second is "Preview News" like this forum,

    the problem,

    I have a page with this name "dostuff.asp" this page is for posting news ,
    I am using this javascript code for previewing News in a popup window
    the page for previewing news is a section of dostuff.asp

    <script language="JavaScript">

    function preview()
    {

    window.open('dostuff.asp','previewWin','scrollbars=yes,resizable=yes,width=650,height=500');

    document.postnews.action.value = 'preview';

    document.postnews.target='previewWin';

    document.postnews.submit();

    }

    </script>


    when I click on Preview button every thing is ok and it will show me the preview of News ,
    But when I close the preview window and  click on publish button it will open preview window again,

    Its something like a history for javascript after clicking on preview button it will store file address in somewhere and after I click on the publish it will open stored address of file

    what is the solution for this problem?
     
    I uesd this code but I get an error

    -----------------------------
    function publish()
    {

    document.postnews.action.value = 'post';

    document.postnews.target='postNews.asp';

    document.postnews.submit();

    }
    ------------------------------

    this error:
    Object doesn't support this property or method
     
    ==
    the line 150 line 150 is this

    <input type="button" value="Preview" name="B3" onclick="publish()">

    where I call the function
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
     
     
    Thanks

    This is actually a client-side javascript question and you may get a better answer in a more relevant forum ...
