Hi all,
Is there any way to pass some values to a webpage ( Pop up ) without using a query String ?

Hidden Text Fields are one way .. any thing else ?

Thanks & regards, Srini

After opening your popup, you can call a JavaScript function in the page and pass along all required parameters. Or a JS function in the popup can collect the values from a form in the main window, which contains the parameters in hidden fields.

Maybe a Javascript cookie? I haven't done that in a long time, but I assume it still works...

Here's a reference.
