Hello

I was given a URL that will popup a chat session window. I'm not sure exactly how to enter the code in the AS. I have created a button with UP/Over/Down/Hit

The URL is listed below:
<!-- Presence aware IM link for Contact Page placement. -->
<A onclick="javascript:window.open('http://dm2.contactatonce.com/CaoClientContainer.aspx?MerchantId=29199&ProviderId=2573&PlacementId=3&OriginationUrl='+encodeURIComponent(location.href),'','resizable=yes,toolbar=no,menubar=no,location=no,scrollbars=no,status=no,height=400,width=600');return false;"href="#"><img onerror="this.height=0;this.width=0" src="http://dm2.contactatonce.com/getagentstatusimage.aspx?MerchantId=29199&ProviderId=2573&PlacementId=3" border="0"></A>

ok I'm missing something. I tried this code:
left out the comments and the <A onclick=
on (release) {
getURL ("javascript:window.open('http://dm2.contactatonce.com/CaoClientContainer.aspx?MerchantId=29199&ProviderId=2573&PlacementId=3&OriginationUrl='+encodeURIComponent(location.href),'','resizable=yes,toolbar=no,menubar=no,location=no,scrollbars=no,status=no,height=400,width=600');return false;"href="#"><img onerror="this.height=0;this.width=0" src="http://dm2.contactatonce.com/getagentstatusimage.aspx?MerchantId=29199&ProviderId=2573&PlacementId=3" border="0">
}

try this one, either remove
&OriginationUrl='+encodeURIComponent(location.href)

or you can have :
&OriginationUrl=http://cls63.brinkster.net

 
on (release) {
getURL ("javascript:NewWindow=window.open('http://dm2.contactatonce.com/CaoClientContainer.aspx?MerchantId=29199&ProviderId=2573&PlacementId=3','newWin','width=600,height=400,left=0,top=0,toolbar=No,location=No,scrollbars=No,status=No,resizable=Yes,fullscreen=No');  NewWindow.focus(); void(0);");
}
