I want to display data retrieved by ajax.
For starters, I just echo back from php a number.
Javascript, however, finds my document (in bold below) to be null.
Curiously, this code elsewhere in my script
works just fine.
Can you maybe see where in my code below I've erred?


function grabItemHist() {
http = getHTTPObject();
var item = document.getElementById("itemid").value;
url = "ajaxGrabItemHist.php?itemid=" + item;
http.open("GET", url, true);
http.onreadystatechange = showItemHist;
http.send(null);
}

function showItemHist() {
if (http.readyState == 4) {
var results = http.responseText;
itemWin=window.open('','itemscr','height=300,width=350');
var tmp = itemWin.document;
tmp.write('<html><head><title>Item History</title></head>');
tmp.write('<body><p>Items:</p>');
tmp.write('<p>Found this many items: '+results+'</p>');
tmp.write('</body></html>');
tmp.close();
if (window.focus) {itemWin.focus()}
}
}

Does the window/tab even open ? It could simply be blocked by the browser.

Poi, the same code, with different names, works just fine elsewhere in the script.
So blockage wouldn't be the issue.

Then if the code you posted isn't the issue, it is where and / or how it's being called right? If it works one place and not the other, what is the difference between the two?

Later,
