Can anybody give me an Example?

Y 'am working with Java and Y have 2 HTML pages in the same Window of the Browser.
In Page A  Y am calling Page B with the statement showDocument like this :

showDocument(PageB)
This works fine but if Y have to pass a Parameter should Y do like this ?
showDocument(PageB?name=value)

If it`s like this how should be the code of PAGE B ( the code to receive the parameter).

Y'am not shure if Y'am doing this rigth.
PD: Y heard something about CGI but Y don't know much ( so Y need an Example)

I presume you are talking about javascript and not Java. Anyhow if page B is a plain HTML page you cannot simply pass it a parameter in the way that you have done. The approach that you have taken would be fine if it were a CGI (which is a program) that outputs the HTML.

As you state that it is plain HTML the way to pass the parameters is to have some Javascript in page B which is executed when the page loads and fetches a parameter from page A.

The code would be along the lines

pageb.myvalue=pagea.myvalue

where pagea and pageb are the frame names and myvalue are the variables that hold the value in each page.

The code would be executed by using the onLoad event in the body statement of page b.
If it is indeed a CGI that you want then there is a lot to be covered and you would be better to read up on CGIs and then repose any questions that you have (specifing the language that you are using).
