    Unhappy Form and cgi

    Hi,
    I am using a form on my website to submit a few details on another web site using a similar form.
    My details are checked by their cgi and they normally return a success page or a failure page.

    Is it possible to check for the output of the cgi and depending on what is the result to show my success or failure page?

    I hope you understood what I mean.

    It's probably not going to be possible to check the output unless the CGI is running on your server. There would have to be a page in between the check page and the output page and that would be controlled by the script.

    Maybe I can open the success or failure page they produce in a small window(smallest can be), then run some sort or script that checks some text in their pages and then go back to my pages?

    Their success or failure page can be in a frame.

    Can I do this? How do I do it? I mean how do you check if a page says hi or bye?
