Hi all,
When I try to open a new window using, I get JSException. I am passing the url to be opened from a java program to the javascript as given below:
Here is the code in the java program :
public void openNewWindow()
{String strURL[] = new String[1];
JSObject win = JSObject.getWindow(this);"openWindow",strURL);
catch (Exception ex)
And here is the JavaScript code :
function openWindow(strURL)
Can anyone tell me why I get this error ?
Thanks in advance,

Haven't used Java to call a javascript to open a window before, but one thought is that you have quotes around your strURL in your javascript code. Since this is a variable, I would think you would not want to have the quotes. So it would read: (strURL,"name","toolbars,menubar,scrollbars");
Have you checked out Aspose?

It's not a secret anymore!
