I need to set the hyperlink in the following code to open in a new window, any advice?

$b8 = "Permit" ; $l8 = "http://www.mcfederation.com/FORMS/PERMITAPPLICATIONFORM.aspx"; $w8 = 91;

You can't use PHP header to open URL in new window.
This is something that happens "client side", not "server side".

I have a question though ...

You're opening the new window from where?

If you're on a page and execute a PHP script, the server will overwrite your current page.

Or maybe you mean opening the URL in a new window with a link?
Is that what you mean?

A link like this?


$b8 = "Permit" ; $l8 = "http://www.mcfederation.com/FORMS/PERMITAPPLICATIONFORM.aspx"; $w8 = 91;

echo "<a href='$l8' target='_blank'>Open Page in new window</a>";


If it's not opening a new window with an HTML link, you'll need to use javascripting or AJAX.
