Executing Javascript From A Menu Option

I am using IE6 exclusively for this app and I have the following line in one of my submenus:

aI("text=ADR - Court Ops;'','UBS','width=800,height=600,resizable=yes,scrollbars=yes,toolbar=yes,location=yes,status=yes,menubar=yes');");

It executes fine and opens the seperate browser window and displays the correct page.

The problem that occurs, is that my page in the other browser window goes away and is replaced by a page that just says "[object]".

Does the syntax of this menu option need to be adjusted ??

Got a URL we can look at?

You may have to escape the quotes with a \ .

Pull the javascript function call out of the menu item and call a simpler function. In that simpler function, do the The reason I think this happens is because returns a window object reference (which can be used in later code to determine if the window was successfully loaded). I believe the menu is trying to get your page to navigate to this 'window object reference'. In my example below, I defined winPop right after the drawmenus function call, but you can define it anywhere, in another file, in the head of your page, whereever. And note, you could make your winPop function parameterized, so that you could pass in a URL and thats where the pop up would navigate to.
aI("text=ADR - Court Ops;url=javascript:winPop();");


function winPop()
