Passing multiple variables in a javascript popup to another popup

I'm not sure if I'm providing enough information here:

Basically, I have a popup window that is generated by some javascript (I found the javascript on a "get a free script" site and it worked rather well for me). Rather, it worked very well when I only passed one variable from this popup window to another popup window. Now, I need to come back to this several months later and pass two variables from this page to the next. Here's what I have:

<script language="JavaScript" src="/resources/popup.js"></script>

<form name="Custom" method="post" action="javascript:CreateWnd('srvpatch.asp?Server5=<%=strServer%>', 500, 700, true);"
<input name="Server5" type="hidden" value="<%=strServer%>">
<input type="submit" value="View">&nbsp; <strong><font color="#008080">Missing Patch Status</font></strong><BR>
</FORM>

I tried a few different things:

<form name="Custom" method="post" action="javascript:CreateWnd('srvpatch.asp?Server5=<%=strServer%>', 500, 700, true);"
<input name="Server1" type="hidden" value="<%=strServer%>">
<input name="Server2" type="hidden" value="<%=strServer%>">
<input type="submit" value="View">&nbsp; <strong><font color="#008080">Missing Patch Status</font></strong><BR>
</FORM>

However, it would seem that the variable being passed is being passed from here instead:

action="javascript:CreateWnd('srvpatch.asp?Server5=<%=strServer%>', 500, 700, true);"

How can I alter this line to pass more than one variable? Is there a better way to do this? Speaking down to me is encouraged as I'm not very good at this :)

Thanks,
Tim

Do you wish to pass another variable by query string?

action="javascript:CreateWnd('srvpatch.asp?Server5=<%=strServer%>&Server2=<%=strServer2%>', 500, 700, true);"
If I misunderstood your question, please elaborate.

Thanks

I'm getting a type mismatch when I try your example. You are correct though, that's exactly what I'm trying to do.

There is obviously a problem in creating the string. LEts try this :)

var lstrURL
lstrURL  = "srvpatch.asp?Server5=<%=strServer%>&Server2=<%=strServer2%>"
alert  (lstrURL);
CreateWnd(lstrURL, 500, 700, true);"
or we can also use
window.open(lstrURL, 500, 700, true);

Please try and let me know

Thanks

I tried this function and it seems to work well

function test()
      {
            var url;
            url = 'srvpatch.asp?Server5=<%="hello"%>&Server2=<%="world"%>'
            alert(url);
            window.open(url, 500, 700, true);

      }

Thanks
