Error Message-I am not certain which Group to ask

P: n/a
Does anyone know what the error message: the callee(server(not server
application) is not available and disappeared; all connections are
invalid. The call did noot execute. means?

I get this from certain web pages when I try to hit the link buttons
for it to perform an action on another page?

It occurs in the context of pages using javascript to generate page
content and communicate between windows, one of which windows is closed.

Possibly
* page A pops up page B in the link and page B wants to communicate with
page A, but page A has been closed (possibly by you or a popup killer?), or
* Internet Explorer has become totally confused and it will work in
another browser, or
* poor page design.

From your perspective and depending on how much spying the site is
doing on your browsing, the result could be good or bad either way.

pop-up ad blockers are often the culprit -- the main page is trying to find
info from the blocked page. If you're a JavaScript programmer and are
having trouble keeping passed values available once you have closed a
popup, read on...

For what it's worth, I needed to popup a window, submit a form to my
database, create an array from the result and return it to a global
variable of the window.opener. As long as the popup window was open the
opener window could reference the array. But I needed to close the window
because its only reason for being was the trip to the database. Nothing
displayed on it.

Even tougher -- the variable name needed to be based on input from the
user so I couldn't predefine it on the opening window.

As soon as the window was closed I got the same error:

Error: The callee (server [not server application]) is not available and
disappeared; all connections are invalid. The call did not execute.

After playing with passing back the array as an array in every way I could
think of, I gave up and decided to return a string with the array values
delimited. That meant having to parse the string into an array using
split() when the values were needed, but at least the kludge works.
