If I want to display a form from a database or let's say a dialog box, do I have to either use javascript or open another webpage?

essentially I would like to show a listing of items to varify an order, should the user decide to omit one or more items, they can select the item and press a button to delete the chosen items.

What is the best approach for this. Thanks Jack

You can send the user to another page without javascript...just use the .redirect() function in the events of the dialog component.

However, your user can delete a record without redirecting by using an updateble grid.

Coming from the Cold Fusion/ASP world it is pretty cool to see how easy it is to accomplish this feat in Alpha Five...In CF/ASP had to write a pile of code to do what A5 now can do with no code at all!
