    I have been following a topic about passing data to a client window,
    that was here some time ago, but i can't get it to work, any suggestions ?

    The function is in the HTML part of the page :

    <html>
    <head><title>Web Database Sample Index</title>
    <SCRIPT LAGUAGE="JavaScript">
    function new_window(idsel)
    {
    window.open('info-basis.php3?id=idsel','Client','width=300,height=350,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no, toolbar=no,resizable=no,left=340,top=150,screenX=150,screenY=1 50')
    }
    </SCRIPT>
    </head>


    The call is made from a line created with PHP

    $event = $r["event"];
    echo '<tr><td><a href="javascript:new_window()">', $item_regel_font_start, $event, $item_regel_font_stop, '</a></td><td>', $item_regel_font_start, $city, $item_regel_font_stop, '</td><td>', $item_regel_font_start, $location, $item_regel_font_stop, '</td><td>', $item_regel_font_start, $times, $item_regel_font_stop, '</td></tr>';

    The above works in that the window pops up, but as soon as i put data in the call like :

    echo '<tr><td><a href="javascript:new_window(', $event, ')">', $item_regel_font_start, $event, $item_regel_font_stop, '</a></td><td>', $item_regel_font_start, $city, $item_regel_font_stop, '</td><td>', $item_regel_font_start, $location, $item_regel_font_stop, '</td><td>', $item_regel_font_start, $times, $item_regel_font_stop, '</td></tr>';

    i will see -javascript:new_window(My Data)- in the status line of netscape,
    but the client window won't open.

    Thanks in advance

    See their is a very small problem in your java script function:


    function new_window(idsel)
    {
    window.open('info-basis.php3?id=idsel'


    you should concatenate java script variable
    here other wise it will conside that as simple text

    ie,it should be,

    function new_window(idsel)
    {
    window.open('info-basis.php3?id='+idsel,


    hope it will accept your value...
