Re: Submit POST data with no callback

Darn, I was really hoping there'd be an cleaner way but if it works, it works, I guess. Thank you, Slava. :)

You can have hidden (display: none) FormPanel with method="post". Then:
form.getElement().<FormElement> cast().setTarget("");

That will redirect to specified url with POST.

I feel a little silly asking this since it feels like something that should be obvious.

How do I submit data to another URL, via POST (or GET if need be) without it being an ajax request? Do I need to construct a fake FormPanel and make it 1px big to submit the data to a URL? Can I use request builder and set the content-type header? The problem is that I need to browser to advance to that URL where the submission is processed but the GWT methods all seem to expect that to be an asynchronous event.

Please help?
