Default Add a parameter to a pop up window

Hallo everyone,

I am now trying to make a pop up window from a link which also has to take a parameter from the homepage in order to use this parameter in another javascript of that pop up window. How can I do it?

You have at least two choices:
* If the paarmeter is serialisable include it as a querystring
* If it's an object pass it using the reference returned by window.open:
var oChildWindow = window.open(sUrl, sName, sFeatures);
oChildWindow.data = <your parameter here>;
Then in the popup you can access self.data.

Hallo Joe,

I have an object which accesses to article IDs from SOAP. When I click a headline I want to open a pop up browser which grabs this object and writes the article to this pop up browser.

Here is the code:

for(var i=0; i<size;i++){
        var article;
        myArray6[i] = xmldoc.selectNodes("//fcs:folder/fcs:folderHeadlinesResultSet/fcs:folderHeadline/fcs:contentParts/fcs:part/@type")[i];
        if (myArray6[i].value=="NewsArticle") {
          article = xmldoc.selectNodes("//fcs:folder/fcs:folderHeadlinesResultSet/fcs:folderHeadline/fcs:contentParts/fcs:part/@reference")[i].value;
        myArray1[i] = xmldoc.selectNodes("//fcs:folder/fcs:folderHeadlinesResultSet/fcs:folderHeadline/fcs:baseLanguage")[i];
        myArray2[i] = xmldoc.selectNodes("//fcs:folder/fcs:folderHeadlinesResultSet/fcs:folderHeadline/fcs:wordCount")[i];
        myArray3[i] = xmldoc.selectNodes("//fcs:folder/fcs:folderHeadlinesResultSet/fcs:folderHeadline/fcs:publicationDate")[i];
        myArray4[i] = xmldoc.selectNodes("//fcs:folder/fcs:folderHeadlinesResultSet/fcs:folderHeadline/fcs:publicationTime")[i];
        myArray5[i] = xmldoc.selectNodes("//fcs:folder/fcs:folderHeadlinesResultSet/fcs:folderHeadline/fcs:headline/fcs:paragraph")[i];
        row = myTable.insertRow(i+1);
        myCell.innerText = myArray1[i].text;
        myCell2 = row.insertCell(1);
        myCell2.innerText = myArray2[i].text;
        myCell3 =row.insertCell(2);
        myCell3.innerHTML ="<a href ='javascript: popUp(article); '>"+ myArray5[i].text+"</a>";
        myCell4 = row.insertCell(3);
        myCell4.innerText = myArray3[i].text;


I hope you could understand what I meant. It doesn't work. It says article is undefined but I have to parse this article to a new pop up window.
