    Using the Lightbox option, how can I have the submit action open a new browser window?

    Asked by MrBond on September 05, 2013 at 04:18 AM

    I can do this using target=_blank on a normal form that shows on the site, but not with a lightbox form that has popped up.

    I understand that you can add the target_blank in the form tag of the embed code, but from what I can see, using the embed code won't allow the lightbox functionality?

    The form I am using is on the 'download guide' button.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi Paul,

    You will need to use the form's source code to be able to achieve this.

    It is not possible to do this using the lightbox form in the form builder because the target of submit.php (submit button) needs to be modified.

    A similar discussion was done here Changing-the-submit-button-s-target -- check the solution provided by our colleague Liyam

    Hope this help. Inform us if you need further assistance on this.
