    Hi,

    http:///window=name

    This opens up a pop up window textarea to enter text

    However, is it possible to pass in the string to textarea via the URL

    Something like: http:///window=name&text="foo"

    Hi,

    From what I understand, this http:///window=name is a browser console command for Windows. This is not really using URL parameter value encoding.

     So, this will not work http:///window=name&text="foo"  as to the technique described on the user guide

    But can you please provide us more details of what you were trying to achieve. Perhaps there is a workaround we can do once we understand exactly what the requirement is.

    Thanks.
