I found that we can use xmlHTTP.

Submit the form to a script on your server then create a xmlHTTP post to post the datato the form. You will receive a response that you can then output to the user.


If Len(Request.Form) > 0 Then
dim strResponse,destURL,strContent

destURL = "http://domain.com/script.asp"
Response.Write destURL
'Construct the Post Data
strContent = strContent & "name=" & server.URLencode(Request.Form("name"))
strContent = strContent & "&pass=" & server.URLencode(Request.Form("pass"))

'Construct the useragent and send
set http_obj=server.CreateObject("MSXML2.ServerXMLHTTP ")
http_obj.Open "POST", destURL , false
http_obj.setRequestHeader "Content-type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded"

'Grab the response
strResponse = http_obj.ResponseText

set http_obj=nothing
Response.Write "Form sent"
response.write( strResponse )

End If

<form name="form1" method="post" action="">
<input name="name" type="text" value="joe">
<input name="pass" type="password" value="1234">
<input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Submit">


<H1>Thankyou for posting data</H1>
<p>Here are the results</p>
For Each Item In Request.Form
Response.Write Item & ": " & Request.Form(Item) & "<br>"

The HTML output of this page will be the strResponse variable.

HOWEVER, i'd like to submit the form at ASP server side, the go to the destination page that received the form... Any hints? thanks
