You can use the window.open method in a JavaScript script to open the window and load it with your application.  Here's an example:
 
<script language="javascript">
function openAppWindow(windowUrl, windowName) {
 var windowWidth = Math.min(screen.availWidth, 700).toString();
 var windowHeight = screen.availHeight - 50;
 var wApp = window.open(windowUrl, windowName, 'left=0, top=0, width=' + windowWidth + ',height=' + windowHeight + ',resizable=1, status=1');
 wApp.focus();
 return false;
}
</script>

How do you run the application in a new window that has no toolbar and menu bar (like this forum)?
 
Thanks,

This has been a problem ever since the first days of the Web.  There's not much you can do about it.  One possibility is to run your application in a new window that has no toolbar and menu bar (like this forum), but the user can still right-click on the page and select back from the context menu.
 
Another possibility to avoid data duplication is to add a hidden field to your form and populate it with a randomly generated string.  You can then create a table that stores these strings whenever your script makes changes to your database as a result of a form submition, but only if the currently submitted random string is not already in the table.  A safe way to create these random strings is to use SYS(2003) + LTRIM(STR(Request.CurrentChannel)).

What is the best technique for controlling the flow of the user through a FoxWeb application.
 
I am running into problems where users are using the Back Button when I only want to permit them to go forward through the pages in the sequence that I intend. The results are duplication of data.
 
How do you keep a user moving through a sequence of pages in order without the ability to go back?
 
Thanks
