Hi All,

I have a requirement.I got a HTML/JSP page. When a button is pressed, an email window (native to the client machine e.g. OUTLOOK) will be displayed as a popup. In that email window I have to populate whatever the data in the parent page.

Please anybody help me.

But in this link I can't find, how to paste the content of the parent HTML page to the body of the mail. I can only find the code to add some text only. Suggestions with code will be most welcome.

Thanks

Unless you can get the contents of the page in a string and apply it to the body element of the mailto format, you can't.

Full-blown HTML mail is best generated on the server side using the JavaMail API.
