perl cgi form action target

Hello All,

I was trying to come up with a form using perl cgi. I then created a frame to show the output of the form. Refer below

print $display_form->start_form(-title=>"Updateuser", -style => 'font-size: 9pt; color: #202020 ; font-family: Verdana', action=>"${DOCROOT}", target=>'cmxiframe');

print $display_form->end_form();

print $display_form->Tr(
-width => "70%",
-halign => "right",
-valign => "top" },
"<iframe id=\"cmxiframe\" name=\"cmxiframe\" src=\"${DOCROOT}\" width=600 height=200 frameborder=0 scrolling=no style=\"overflow:visible\"></iframe>"

However, this is not redirecting the output of my 'action' scipt into the required frame. Does anyone see a problem here ? Thanks in advance.

Some hyphens appear to be missing on this line.

Even after adding the hyphens, it continues to take me to a new page and is not loading it in the frame Smilie

Have you checked the generated HTML (use browser's view source) really contains the "form" tag with the target attribute and the iframe is really there with that name?

As the CGI module does nothing but generates HTML, it should be reproducible with a static HTML form with the same HTML.

The HTML looks right. Its here below
