window.open

Hi,
if I opened a php-page using

... onclick=\"help= window.open('he lp.php', 'Help',
'innerHeight=40 0,innerWidth=40 0,screenX=555,s creenY=250,depe ndent=Yes,bar=Y es');
....

is there a way to send data to the invoked page (help.php)? Something
like $_POST[....] if I would use a HTML form-submit?
Setting cookies or store data in mysql are not so very elegant solutions.

Can somebody give me hint?

Just add a query string after help.php:

... onclick=\"help= window.open('he lp.php?a=10&b=2 0&c=40', 'Help',

'innerHeight=40 0,innerWidth=40 0,screenX=555,s creenY=250,depe ndent=Yes,bar=Y e
s');
...

Hope it helps

window.open(... ) is a GET operation, you can not POST data to the page being opened.
However, you can pass approximately 2Kb of data on the URL itself during the GET
operation:

window.open(
'help.php?a=' + clientSideVaria ble,
'Help',
'...attributes. ..'
);

If you actually want to POST data, you're going to have to store it in a form and
POST that form:

<form name="myHiddenF orm" method="POST" action="help.ph p" target="Help">
<input type="hidden" name="myHiddenV alue" value="">
</form>
<a href="noJS.html "
onclick="submit Form('myHiddenF orm');return false;">Help</a>
<script type="text/javascript">
function submitForm(name ) {
var f = document.forms[name];
if (f) {
window.newWindo wHtml = [
'<html>',
'<head>',
'<title></title>',
'</head>',
'<body onload="',
'var w;',
'if ((w = window.opener) &&',
'(w = w.document) &&',
'(w = w.forms) &&',
'(w = w[\'' + name + '\'])) {',
'w.submit();',
'}',
'window.focus() ;',
'">',
'</body>',
'</html>'
].join('\n');
window.open(
'javascript:ope ner.newWindowHt ml',
f.target,
'...attributes. ..'
);
}
}
</script>

I am trying to allow a user to view a PDF in a new window. I currently have this working using the following: <a href="./pdf.do?parameter=01121980" target="top"><b>pdf</b></a> The problem with the above solution is the back/forward buttons and all the other browser options. Because of this, I am trying to get the following solution to work: <a href="#" onclick="popUp('./pdf.do?parameter=01121980')"><b>pdf</b></a>

Hello, I am using the following javascript code to open a new window. Somehow, IE always opens a new window. It doesn't open target url in the window name given. All i want is, if there is a window "MyWin" already open, then the main window should load the target url in "MyWin" and not open a new window again.

But, if it's not open, I don't want to open it . . . using window.open will open it if it doesn't exist, even if the url in that open is null (the window is then empty -- but it's open). The situation is: A main window opens child windows one at a time as the user requests, each with its own name. The user may click in any child window or the main window to open a summary window, which has a name all windows know. I want to get that...

Hello, I am trying to open a window containing an image and I would like the image to be flush against the window -- i.e. have no padding or border. Can I make this happen with a single call to a window.open function? I would prefer not to create a separate HTML page. So far all I have is the basic var cwin = window.open('images/KJV-THANKS.gif', 'Thanks', 'width=243,height=420,'); cwin.focus();
