Hi All -

I'm adding a feature that needs to pop-up a printable form (at users request). I'm having trouble with pop-up blockers and need to do something to avoid them.

Normally, I would just create a clean link to open the window w/o javascript, but in this case the printable form relies on user supplied info from the page that opens it. In order to accomplish this, I need to edit then pass the user supplied data before opening the window containing the printable form.

The only way I can see to make this work is to have the user click a button that edits the data (I'd store the edited data in the DB), then expose a link that say's click here for your printable form. That seems pretty lame. Better ideas?
