Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps

The Use of the "this" Pointer in JavaScript

This tip explains how to pass an object to a JavaScript function and retrieve the values from the "this" object. See the following piece of code:
<META NAME="GENERATOR" Content="Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0">
<script language="JavaScript">
function openWindow(obj){
	alert("Devx:"+obj.name+" Devx:"+obj.DisplayName+" 
<a style="cursor:hand" SavedName="TipSubmitted" 
name="TipSubmission" onClick=openWindow(this)>click...</a>

Run the above HTML code and click on the string in the alert. It should show:
"Devx:TipSubmission Devx:TechTip Devx:TipSubmitted"
