hi,
I am new to javascript
my problem is i want to search student information from the database by entering student name..
the problem is there can be more than one name with the same name.
so if search for john then it should popup a window and it must display the name with his registration no
example :

john 10003

john 10012

john 10004

so that here the user can select the student according to his reg. number.

please anybody help me.

you write a jsp which selects the information from the database.
A jsp ultimately translates to html content. so you have a html page which has all the information in tabular form.
now the problem is to open in a new window.
so you can call the jsp to open in a new window.

window.open(PAGENAME,.....)
or
window.showModalDialog(PAGENAME,....)

This will popup a new window.
You close this window using
window.close();


Life called,so here I am.<br />Cheers<br />Niki.:-)

"surya mm", you have already been asked on at least one other occasion to adjust your display name to meet JavaRanch standards. This is not optional. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it prior to your next post.

Be aware that accounts with invalid display names are removed.

jsp translates to servlet. then servlet translates to html.
this is how jsp works.
so if you dot no do database activity in jsp which i agree you should not, you do it in the servlet. So the servlet will translate to html.
So it will work.

The flow is to be clear
JSP - SERVLET - HTML.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
