Default Question: Using Popup & Parent windows in ASP

I need the ability to create a popup window based on the database info I
have in my table and create in that popup window a link to a specific page
in the parent window and finally stopping the popup window effect if the
database info criteria is met. Can I do that since I am assuming that I
am within the same session?

If so, is there an example that anyone knows of I can reference?

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you

You can load the window properties from a recordset or ADODB connection and then use the javascript like in this example:

winpops = window.open(("yourpage.asp?nickname=<%= nickname %>),"Cheking Password","width=<%= width %>,height=<%= height %>,top=<%= top %>,left=<%= left %>,");

I don't know what you want to do exactly. But here, the script will open a window and send the nickname as a variable. The second parameter is the window title and then I sepcify width, height, etc. from my database parameters.

Then, I ask for the password in that window and submit the form with the nickname and password variable to a page that will check the password like this:

<% If Request("password")=recordset1.Fields.Item("passwo rd").Value Then %>
//here you write the javascript for closing the window
<% Else %>
Wrong password
<% End If %>

Hope that helps.
