    I am attempting to house this form within an iFrame.  I need the user to be able to hit the "submit" button and then stay on the same page, not get redirected to another page.

    Hi,

    Unfortunately there is no possible solution for that in JotForm but being one of the most requested features by jotForm users, this is already in our to do list. We'll just let you know once the feature is up.

    If you have any other questions or concern, please feel free to inform us. Thank you for using JotForm and have a great day!

    yeah, I am having the same problem.  I house the code in an IFrame, and when I submitted the first test to make sure I had the email forwarding right, it went to some stupid thank you page and now I can't get the form to come back no mater how many times I try to refresh.  It either reloads the thank you image thing, or doesnt load at all and the whole iframe is blank.

    I am using this code as a way for people to submit their info on one of our showroom computers and all I want it to do is send me the data and clear the the form.  I can't even use the form the way it is.

    Hi,

    Unfortunately, this option is not supported by JotForm.

    However, it should be possible to redirect the user after submitting your form to the page where the form is embeded. In this case the form will be clear and ready to be filled in.

    That's quite correct, moonzkie. I just tried it with one of my own forms embedded via an iFrame and it worked perfectly. As soon as I was about to post the solution I saw "moonzkie is typing..." and I figured "I bet moonzkie is gonna post what I'm about to" and sure enough, that's what you did! LOL

    Kudos to moonzkie!

    You know what? It has just occurred to me that if the full source of a form is embedded into a page, and that form contains a text box or text area, that text area could be prepopulated with a message via thank you page redirect URL. As a demonstration, submit this form.

    (I realize this is somewhat off topic but I thought it would be worth posting just in case there was a need to present a thank you message when the form reloaded.)
