I need help with newWin.document.write. I can document.write to a new window, but I need it to seperate the information into three columns so that the user can print the new window containg the information that they entered into the form fields. This can not be used in conjunction with cgi, asp php or other. I need a java script to handle this (java script, .js, .class and such). I hope this makes since. Below you will find the code I have already written. Just copy and paste the code into HTML editor and save to view (IE only). Then create another page (blank) and save as PlayerRoster.htm. By doing this you will understand what it is I am trying to do. All this must be able to reside on the users's computer not on the internet. You can email me at LowelGoss@msn.com

You may have to copy to notepad first and then select all and copy and then paste into the html editor for it to work right.

Here is the code:

End Of Code:

I haven't looked at this in detail, but you can layout it columns by using divs, can't you?

I am a newbie at java (self teahing out of books).

I have tried several ways to pass the information from the form to the new document, but can't get it to seperate into appropriate columns. Wants to group everyting into one column (bunched together)

Example1:

Players name Uniform # Position
-------------------------------------------------

1. Lowel28leftfield

I have also tried dashes and dots, But because names can vary in length I get something like the example below.


Example 2:

Players name Uniform # Position
-------------------------------------------------

1. Lowel Goss.....28........leftfield

JavaScript... very different from Java.

I should have some time tomorrow to work up some sample code.

Now I know writing cookie scripts is a daunting task one I don't personally like to do, but what if basic cookie-place and cookie-retrieve scripts could do this? I'm not sure if passing variables in this manner is possible to achieve what i need. Any thoughts on this? Anyone?

You may want to try looking at http://javascript.internet.com/cookies/ for genral cookie scripts which if you understand some of other JavaScript stuff you can find out for setting and getting the cookies, sorry but I can't find the example that I learned it from and I'm away from my home computer, that has my cookies exmples on it, when I return home I'll try to find the example and post it around Monday.
