Passing results to an email link

The example below produces an email link once the test has finished. It will appear below the applet. When clicked it will launch a new email (using whichever email application has been set as default) that includes various test results.

Code Required

The code below just needs to be copied into a web page at the position the applet is to appear. The only change that will be needed is the codebase, highligted in red below. This should be changed to the address of your MyConnection Server installation.

NOTE: The last param tag has been truncated to fit this page, make sure this line is whole once pasted.

<applet mayscript name="mcs" code="myspeedserver/applet/myspeed.class" archive="/myspeed/myspeed_s_8.jar,/myspeed/plugins_s_8.jar" codebase="" width=600 height=400>
<param name="testspecid" value="-2">
<param name="permissions" value="all-permissions">


<div id="theemaillink" style="display:none;"></div>

Copy and paste the entire code below into the opening <head></head> section of your page. The code is commented to explain what is going on at each stage.

The URL in BLUE below will also require changing to the correct MyConnection Server installation.

<script type="text/javascript">

// Function called when the test has completed
function passResults(mssid,detaillink,downspeed,upspeed,downqos,upqos,minrtt,avgrtt,rttconsistency,maxdelay,bandwidth,routespeed,forcedidle) {

document.getElementById("theemaillink").innerHTML = '<br><br><a href=";subject=Speed Test: ' + mssid + '&amp;body=' + emailbody + '">Click here to email support for test ID: ' + mssid + '</a>';

// Makes the DIV visible
document.getElementById("theemaillink").style.display = 'block';
