I am new to struts. I need to generate a popup window and pass values to it using struts.

I found the following code on net

javascript function onclick="passSelected()"

<input type="hidden" name="selectedItem" value=""/>


function passSelected(var)
{
      alert(var);
      var url='popup.do?selectedItem='+var;
      window.open('url','New','height=600,width=600',200,200);
}

My doubt is how to pass this selected item as a parameter to popup.do. in the above function it is passing as a url. Can I directly access this in the action class. or do I need to use some statement as
 
req.getParameter("selectedItem") in the action class.

You can do

onclick="passSelected(this.yourformname.selectedItem.value)" and this should get you the value in the input with the name "selectedItem"

Then you will need ot fill the value using other means, something like

javascript function onclick="passSelected()"

function passSelected()
{
      alert(var);
      var url='popup.do?selectedItem='+<%=<your struts variable here>%>;
      window.open('url','New','height=600,width=600',200,200);
}

> will not the statement req.getParameter("selecteditem" ) declared in action class work.

This will use the request object. You could use that as well by doing

javascript function onclick="passSelected()"

function passSelected()
{
      alert(var);
      var url='popup.do?selectedItem='+<%=req.getParameter("selecteditem" )%>;
      window.open('url','New','height=600,width=600',200,200);
}

but you will have to set the "selectedItem" value from a *previous* page.

Thanks for the real good answer. One last question

Will the statement

var url='popup.do?selectedItem='+<%=req.getParameter("selecteditem" )%>;

pass the value of the selected item to popup.do, as I need it in popup.do. If no how to.

It will if the parameter "selectedItem" comes from a *previous* page (i.e. when you did the request), if in the same page as the JavaScript code you have a "selectedItem" parameter and you want to get this then you will not be able to do it using the "req" object. You will have to use JavaScript.
