I have enabled smart navigation for my ASP.Net web application.
It works fine except for some of my pages where I'm using some Javascript code.
Here is a sample Javascript code which I'm using

      Response.Write("<script language='javascript'>")
                Response.Write("window.open('POREP01.aspx')")
                Response.Write("</script")        
      Response.Write(">")

The error message which I'm getting is
'htmlfile:Invalid pointer'

A page http://localhost/aspnet_client/system_web/1_0_3705_352/SmartNav.js is opened in debug mode in Visual studio.Net, and it breaks at the line

            hdm.appendChild(k);
Is this a bug from Microsoft,
Pls help,
regards,
Priya

It seems that the adding of the javascript is causing the error.
Try to add it via the Register function and use a function:

In your page_load event:

Dim strScript As String = "<script language='javascript'>" & vbCrLf
strScript += " function window.onload() {" & vbCrLf
strScript += "    window.open('POREP01.aspx'); }" & vbCrLf
strScript += "</script>" & vbCrLf

Me.RegisterClientScriptBlock("yournameofthescript", strScript)

D'Mzz!

Your solution works fine..thanx very much..

But now the new window is being displayed at the back of the main web page...that is it is minimised..we have to maximise it to see it...my user may not notice that the new window has been opened...

Hi priya, thanks for the points but why did you close it with a B while with a little more information it could have been an A?

The solution is to add some 'features' to the window.open:

  var sfeat='left=50,top=50,height=450,width=550,toolbar=no,location=no,directories=no,status=yes,menubar=no,scrollbars=yes,resizable=yes';
  window.open('POREP01.aspx', '_blank', sfeat);

D'Mzz!

Our Dev teams are like yours. They’re continually cranking out code for new features/bugs fixes, testing, deploying, testing some more, responding to production monitoring events and more. It’s complex. So, we thought you’d like to see what’s working for us.

>>just because the solution was not 100 % complete

Not entirly true, I copied your open statement from the question. I could not know that you wanted to do something else with it.
So, the solution *was* complete, you just needed something more than you originally asked for.

But if you agree that this should have been an A-grade (not just for me, but also for the value of this PAQ) then I can ask a moderator to correct it. Just let me know.

I assume that adding the features helped?

Hello RoverM,
I didn't know that it will so much difference to someone to get a B instead of an A..In fact I even dont know
how does EE handles the marking scheme..I must say that I'm quite new to EE.

Anyway as u mentioned, you can ask a moderator to correct it, its fine for me.
But ading the features did not work..I've already tried it..the window still opens at the back..

Regards and sorry,
Priya

I have been able to make the pop screen appear on top by adding the following in my HTML

<body onLoad="window.focus()">

this works fine...
You have been of great help to me,
Thanx
