I have a JSP with several "submit" type buttons on it. (part of a Struts app)

My question is for just one of the buttons ("View"), I want to open a new browser window, but not for all of the buttons, just the View button.

Therefore, from my testing, I can't use an option like target="_blank" in the JSP's: <html:form action="/workPage.do" target="_blank>

Doing that would also open a new browser window for each of the other buttons, which is not what I want.

So, .... is there a way to selectively open a new browser window based on which "submit" button was clicked?

Thanks very much in advance.

Use JavaScript to add the target attribute to the form when the View button is clicked.
