OK, Here is the situation..

I need to create a popup on click of a link.. and display some data on that poppedup jsp...

Now, here is what i did..
I created a hyperlink on the existing page.. looks something like this...
<a href="" on click="displayPopup();">Display FLevel data</a>
now.. on click of this link, the javascrip function opens a window using

window.showModalDialog("DisplayFLevel.do","","Page");

using this...
i call the action class DisplayFLevel.do and fetch the data i want to show it on the jsp and forward it to a jsp...
i am using tiles..
now once i close the poppedup jsp.. the parent window gets submitted to the context root of the web application.. and i have no idea why it is doing that...

it's because you're ...href=""..., if you're going to us the a tag and not need a url in the href attribute, having ...href="#"... normally takes care of that

just put a # and at worst it'll shoot you to the top of the page. If you need it to stay a the scroll level you're at create an anchor



and then in the href attribute of the link put ...href="#anchorname"...

What if you changed your code to the following?

I've had issues in some browsers with javascript inside the href, but it will work on some, but not all, it's safer using the onclick event.
