Hi All,

I am hoping that somebody can shed some light on a particular problem i have.

I have a DIV structure called DWNewsClientTextArea which will be updated dynamically each time user clicks on the Test Button (on a timer when I get this problem sorted).

The Code works fine, putting buttons into the DIV etc.
The Problem seems to be that the Server Side script appends the domain name onto the url and strips out forward slashes '/'

What I mean is the url of the window opened is this.

'http://FSERVER/COMMSNewsHeadlinesPractice.doc'

The Actual REAL x.path value is:
'http://COMMS/News/Headlines/Practice.doc'

the script is run on an nt4 server named FSERVER

Is this a Security feature when using server side-scripting, as the file is sitting on another domain, but how does the server know this when passing as a string?

I have used x.Name, fi.item(), etc. and all seem to pass the same prefix.
The contents of the x.Name dows not contain this part.

vv confused

Any Help Appreciated


Here's the code i am using, as follows.

Within Default.asp

Code:
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript" src="./_ScriptLib/RS.HTM"></script>
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
	RSEnableRemoteScripting("./_ScriptLib")
</SCRIPT>

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
	function OPENWINDOW(url)
	{
	var Popupwin
	var surl
	var sname
	var sfeatures
	//var sreplace

	sname = "Document LINKER";
	sfeatures = "width='100',height='100'";
	
	Popupwin = window.open(url);
	Popupwin.name = sname
	Popupwin.focus();
	}

	<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">

	function IDX_Search(Folder,Filters)
	{
	window.DWNewsClientArea.innerHTML = "Searching...";
	flder = Folder;
	idx = "searchIDX";
             idx = RSExecute("./common/RS_SearchScripts.asp",
                                    "searchIDX",flder,
                                     showResults,showErrors,idx);
          }

//Fill Out IFrame with Results (HTML formated)
            function showResults(idx){
	rValue = idx.return_value;
	window.DWNewsClientArea.innerHTML = rValue;
	}

function showErrors(idx){
	// Dump raw data
             msg = "The raw data returned by the remote method call is "
	msg = msg + idx.data
	alert(msg);
	// Display friendlier information
	msg = "The following error occurred during the " 
	msg = msg + idx.context
	msg = msg + " remote scripting call:\n"
	msg = msg + idx.message
	alert(msg);
	}
</SCRIPT>
..Remaining HTML Page includes a Test button
<input type="button" value="TEST SEARCH" name="TESTSEARCH" onclick="JavaScript:IDX_Search('//PATH/','A','DWNews')">
This is the scripts used on the Server Side to actualy perform the searching..

'./common/RS_SearchScripts.asp'

Code:

<% RSDispatch %>
<!--#INCLUDE FILE="../_ScriptLib/RS.ASP"-->

<SCRIPT RUNAT=SERVER LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
	var public_description = new MyServerMethods();
	function MyServerMethods()
	{
               this.searchIDX = searchIDXer;
	  this.add = Function( 'folder','return IDXSearch(folder)' );
	}

	function searchIDXer(fld)
	{
               var fso, d, s,fl,fi;
	  var x;
	  var drvpath
               fso = new ActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject");
               d = fso.GetDrive(fso.GetDriveName
                                     (fso.GetAbsolutePathName(drvpath)));
               s = "Drive " + d.DriveLetter + ": - " + d.ShareName;
  	  f = fso.GetFolder(drvpath);
	  fl = new Enumerator(f.SubFolders);
	  s = drvpath + "<br>";
	  for (; !fl.atEnd(); fl.moveNext())
	  {
	  folder = fso.GetFolder(fl.item());
	  s += folder.Name + "&nbsp;<BR>"
    	  fi = new Enumerator(folder.files);
	  for (; !fi.atEnd(); fi.moveNext())  {
	  x = fi.item();

//THE PROBLEM IS WITHIN THIS OPENWINDOW CALL...

s += "<input type='button' value='" + x.Name + "'";

s += " onclick='javascript:OPENWINDOW(\"" + x.path + "\")' ";

s += " id='Button" + x.Name + "' name='button1" + x.Name + "'>";

s += "<br>";

//THIS GIVES THE CORRECT URL..
//s += x.Path
//
	}
        }
        return(s);
  }
