Q1057 I have a page that is the result of a form post operation, how can I stop Netscape reloading the page when I use print()?

Previous Answer: You can't. When you request Netscape to print the current page, it reloads the url into its print engine.

Consider this - The person asking this question may be wondering if there's a way to reload the page without having the page error out or show that there is 'data missing'. This is due to Netscapes inability to cache a form with the method equalling 'post'. Consider setting the method to 'get'. 'Get' works just like 'post', however, 'post' is used to make the form submission more secure. Although using 'get' may print the query string in the url address box at the top, it will assure that the page will not error when reloading.
