open new window

Currently I have the following

obj.setAction("click", function(src){alert(src.getProperty("item/text"))});

it will prompt an alert with message contained inside the grid. However, the user insisted to have new smaller window pop up upon clicking the message.

Please help.

Change the alert to
myWindow = window.open('message.htm','windowname','parameters');

Set the opener
myWindow.opener = window;

In the message.htm write this

This is an example on how to implement it:
1.- copy the file "main15.js" to same folder as the page
2.- Modify this file inserting (in line 20) -- document.onclick=mig_mo --
(this just avoid a small mouseover into selected row)

Functionality.- Any single-click on a selected-row's item show tooltip, another one (single-click) hide it.
I do it this way because don´t want a tooltip every click
Also can show header, html-links, and even Images
Hope this help someone

I have the following:

obj.setAction("click", function(src){ myWindow = window.open('message.htm','windowname','toolbar=1,scrollbars=0,location=1,statusbar=1,menubar=0,resizable=1,width=400,height=300,left = 312,top = 284');});
myWindow.opener = window;


myWindow.opener = window;

in the message.htm

The new pop up windows do open but no message displayed. How do I make the information being clicked display?
