    opening a new window as *.xml using JavaScript


    I am new to this site so appologies for any convention exception.

    I have an XML response from server, I am displaying it in a textarea.
    I want to display the result in a new window, which will contain the server response in a xml display, in a java Script + HTML only.

    <TEXTAREA rows="10" cols="100" name="SoapResponse" type="Text"></TEXTAREA>
    <INPUT type="button" Value="View As XML" onClick="ViewXMLResult();" id=button19 name=button19>

    Calling ViewXMLResult - something like:

    function ViewXMLResult() // Displays the response as XML
    strResult = document.all('SoapResponse').value;
    if (strResult.indexOf("HTML")>0)
    //alert (strResult);"strResult".xml, "window", "width=640, height=430, menubar=no, resizable=yes, scrollbars=yes, status=yes");

    This is of course not the way, I am looking for the right way to do that so in case the server response is:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <GET_COUNT COUNT="6"><Game ID="38634"/></GET_COUNT>

    The new window will show:
    - <GET_COUNT COUNT="6">
    <Game ID="38634" />

    in a xml manner.

    Thanks for any help !!!

    If you navigate to the page directly (instead of through your script), do you get the correct results? It kinda sounds like the server is sending a content type of something other than text/xml (which is what is needed if you want to view as xml).

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks evlich,
    How do you know the content is wrong, if I take the response from Server, paste it in a notepad, and saves as XML, it is opened perfectly in a browser, so the problem is all mine.
    any reposnse starts with :
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

    When the HTTP server responds to a request, it passes a content type along with the file. Normally it is a configuration option and by default text/xml is sent with files ending in a .xml extension.

    To check the response from the server you can look at your browser and find something called 'Page info'. At least that is what it is called in Firefox. Navigate to the URL, right click and click 'View Page Info'. The dialog box that pops up will list the content type that was received.

    Hope this helps.
