web part connection problem trying to open in new window

  Asked By: Vasudev    Date: Apr 16    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1466

I have a dataview that displays help desk tickets. The descriptions
can be quite large so I do not display them here and have a second page
that is also a dataview but contains only the description. I did the
web part connection and it works fine when you click the work
description, it re-loads with the new page showing just the
description. What I'd like to do however is open that description page
in a new window sort of more like a pop up type thing where they can
read it, close it and the main window is still there instead of having
to go back to the main window. I found in the code the target and
changed it from _self to _blank and then it stopped working. The
description page errors out. I am new to this and having to teach
myself so this has me a bit confused.

This may be missing the point, but why not just create a separate .Net app to
poput the full description  and skip messing with the data view?

But if you want/need to use the Data Views, the issue is the web  part
connection. The URLs used for the postback are script, which won't work in a
new window. The simplest method would be to replace the cross-page web part
connection with a URL containing a QUERYSTRING param, then have the 2nd Data
View use the QUERYSTRING param as the value of a filter.
