    Default Call a function via URL

    Is it possible?

    For example: I need to call "Compose.SendMessage();"

    Java Code:
    http://url.com/messenger/compose?displayname=name&message=text
    can I tack on Compose.SendMessage(); like

    Java Code:
    http://url.com/messenger/compose?displayname=name&message=text  && Compose.SendMessage();

    The function I'm trying to call is within:

    XML Code:
    <script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">
    So I guess that's Javascript and not Java? I'm not really sure

    I'm trying to allow someone click a link and automatically send a message on xbox.com

    ie:
    XML Code:
    http://live.xbox.com/en-US/MessageCenter/Compose?gamertag=gamertag&message=message%20body
    And then instead of having to click the Send button, have it be sent automatically.

    Yeah, it's JavaScript, and this is a Java forum. You know that they're about as similar as ham is to hamster. I recommend that you Google for a javascript forum and ask this question there.

    I will delete this thread in a short bit.

    To call javascript code from within an Applet, you need to call

    Java Code:
    getAppletContext().showDocument(new URL("http://live.xbox.com/en-US/MessageCenter/Compose?gamertag=gamertag&message="+messageBody));

    I wish I were that smart, but no, I borrowed it from someone else here.
