    This is possible using your form source code, modify it a bit to create a pop-up thank you window. An example can be found here: http://idarktech.com/jotform/popup/test_jotform_popup.html.

    Here's a guide:

    1. Get your form source code. Follow this guide: How to get your Form Source Code

    2. Add this script at the top part of the entire form source code. http://pastie.org/pastes/6116605/text

    3. Now to call this on your form, simply add an onsubmit event on your form tag. onsubmit="validateForm('popup.html',400,200);"


    <form class="jotform-form" action="http://submit.jotform.com/submit/23303095789965/" method="post" name="form_23303095789965" id="23303095789965" accept-charset="utf-8" onsubmit="validateForm('popup.html',400,200);">

    Be sure to replace popup.html file, to the HTML file you'd like to pop up over the form when submit button is clicked.

    4. To avoid the submissions page to load on the new tab, simply declare a dummy iframe code. Add it before the ending </form> tag. Example:

    <iframe name="loadself" width="0" height="0">

    5. Last is to add a target attribute with the iframe name value e.g. loadself under <form code as seen on the example above, under 3rd step highlighted in skyblue.

    Let us know if you have any difficulties with any of these steps. Thanks!

    I think a Pop-up "Thank you" message should be integrated in the options for easy creation. Please submit this request.

    Your suggestion seems to be a good one. I have opened a ticket to add this feature to our requests list

    This example redirects the user after he closes the pop-up. Is it possible to avoid any kind of redirection when a user has submitted? I want him to stay on the same page so he can submit a new question without refreshing the page at all.
