help with (HTTP_REFERER)

Using CDO

HI, I have a link on my website. When the user clicks the link, a small asp form(mail.asp) pops up that they fill out. I am trying to get http_referers to work. The best that I can do so far, is that the recipient gets an email reading. Please check out www.site.com/mail.asp. The referer is picking up the last page as the email form itself, and not the previous page.

Anyone have any idea on how this may be done correctly?

Thanks
David

I'm not entirely sure, but how are you opening your pop-up window? If you are using jscript it may not have a referrer property since it is esentially a new window...just a guess.

Have you considered changing the link to a button on a form using either GET or POST and passing the current form name to the mail.asp form via the request.querystring?

Thanks for the replies. I guess I am open to options that will allow this to work.

As far as the form button. Any online links that explain this further?

Thanks Again

I'm assuming you're using javascript's window.open object to pop up the window...

window.open('mail.asp?r=<%=Server.URLEncode(Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_REFERER"))%>');

On your mail.asp page, you can do this:

<%
strReferer = Request.QueryString("r")

%>

You will now have the value available on mail.asp
