I want to execute this Javascript from the HYPERLINK function in my image formula field. This way I can display an image in a certain circumstance (using IF) and then do something via the Javascript by passing it info from the record.

e.g., IF(Field='A',HYPERLINK('Javascript',IMAGE(ImageLocation,'ImageName')'Name'),'')

My problem is that I am taking Javascript from an existing button and placing it into the HYPERLINK function, and I don't know how to construct the syntax so that it works.

Button: Execute Javascript OnClick Javascript:

> var child = window.open("/apex/DoSomething?cid={!Contact.Id}", "Title", "height=400,width=850, scrollbars =yes"); 

>var timer = setInterval(checkChild, 250); 

>function checkChild() { 
if (child.closed) {
