    Weblink to PHP routine

    I've got a weblink that points to a php file on another machine. When the weblink is selected it opens a new window as the server processes the link. Is there a way to prevent the user's browser from opening a new window just to execute the php routine?

    You could use a hidden iframe, or, a straight-up Ajax call.

    Thanks for the response, but can't use Iframes in the originating page. I'd be content if PHP would open the window "minimized" and then destroy it when execution is complete.
