I believe the problem is that you've quoted the height and width attributes and they should not be. The window.open method takes three arguments - the URL to open, the name of the window, and a single string describing the features of the new window to open. The quotes you have around the height and width prevent the javascript from seeing the feature list as a single string. I think your code should corrected like this:

>vBChat = window.open('vBChat.php?$session[sessionurl]','vBChat', 'directories=no,height=400,width=600,location=no,menubar=no,scrollbars=yes,status=

Give it a shot and see if it makes your script works any better. :)


Update: For some reason, the board is insisting on escaping one of the quotes, even though it is inside of a set of CODE tags. Where you see & #39; in the function above, that should also be a ' mark.

Kaz, remember that the ' or "single quote mark" signifies the beginning and end of a string in JavaScript. So when you type this:




Javascript sees:




as one string,




as another, and




as another, with some non-string values in between.
