How to display the log-in form in an external window rather than a frame


A developer asks: I have an HTML frameset containing a legacy PegaWORKS form, and I can reference the Process Commander servlet in a window and present the Process Commander sign-on form in that window.

However, if I sign on to Process Commander through that widow, the resulting session takes over the whole frameset rather than staying in its initial window. 

The HTML anchor is defined with target = session.  Is there a way to prevent Process Commander from taking over the frameset, or is there an alternative approach I should use?

Suggested Approach

Answer: Check whether the submit button on the sign-on form is defined with target = top. 

If so, redefine it as target = session.
