Default Two action in a form

Hi

I want to create a button that will do two different action.
In fact I want it to start a .exe and after that refresh the windows.

Now I already register my application to a URL protocol so I'm able to launch my application (a little .exe that I'd create )with the "note:" action like this:

<FORM ACTION="note:" METHOD="post">
            <INPUT TYPE="submit" VALUE="Submit">
</FORM>

This work well, but I aslo want to refresh the windows after the operation is finish because my .exe change the data. The only way I know for that is a form like this:

<FORM ACTION=""theSamePage.asp"METHOD="post">
            <INPUT TYPE="submit" VALUE="Submit">
</FORM>

So is it possible to automatically refresh my page after my .exe is done???


Thank you

Johnjohn

I would action the form to another page (weather it has a gui or not doesnt matter) execute the .exe there and then:

<script Language = JavaScript>
   opener.history.go(0);
   self.close();
<script>
