Hi there,

I have a form that collects user data and once the person hits the submit button the form action redirects the user to a certain page.
Like this:

public static function PrintJobCard($data, $form) {
$date = $data['JobDate'];
$plumber = (int)$data['PlumberID'];
return Controller::curr()->redirect("jobcardprint/".$plumber."/".$date);


I need the action to open up a new window...usually set in normal html forms with the target="_blank" do i do this on the SS form action?

Figured it out.... you need to set the target on the form you create and not on the redirect controller.

public function JobCardSearch() {
return Form::create(
DateField::create("JobDate", "Job date")
FormAction::create("PrintJobCard","Print Card")
