I'm trying to force my users to close a popup window before they can return to the Parent window. I more or less want to "lock" the parent window and force the user to fill in the info on the popup and hit submit, which in turn will close the popup and then allow the user to continue working on the parent window.
I guess this case applies to both popup windows opened by window.open() and by showModalWindow().
I have two buttons in popup window, "Cancel" and "Save". If the user clicks either button, there is a "process" at parent window before close() at popup being called. The problem now is, if the user click the "X" sign at top right corner of that popup window, how to trigger the "process"?
I think I can do nothing in popup window since the closure is unexpected programmatically. Can I put some kind of listener in parent window to detect if popup is closed?
I have a couple of utility windows - a calculator and a calendar that popup from my main window. I would like them to always stay in front of the parent window until they are shut down with there own close buttons. As it is, when you click back to the parent window, of course it comes in front of the child windows. Can I do this?
I need the most efficient way of passing a variable from a parent window to a popup window.The reason i say "most efficient" is because i currently do it like this from the parent:[code]But this is inefficient because at times it randomly alerts "undefinded".Anyways, can someone tell me a more fail safe way to pass a var to a popup so that i will be able to access it 100% correctly.
how I can populate the value of an input field on a parent window from a selected item (of a form - listmenu) on a pop-up window? Basically, I need to pass the value of one form to another form located on a different page...
Wondering how one would go about creating a popup window that would exactly copy the size & location of the parent window. I am guessing that you would combine two functions, one to assign size & location of parent window to JS variables; the next to open the popup incorporating those variables. I'm sure i can find snippets on the web. would there be a simpler way?
For example, I have a page: http://www.cmela.com/zz.phpWhen i open a popup by clicking "Click Here to open popup page" and then on popup window, i wanted it to transfer parent page from making a click on a pop up window.Example is at:http://www.cmela.com/zz.phpopen pop up window, and then by clicking on a link on a pop up window i wanted my parent page to go to www.msn.com
On my parent page I have a form with an input text field containing the value of a Customer name (pulled from a database). I also have an image link that, when clicked, will launch a popup window that performs a database lookup and displays all Customer names.
1. Each Customer name in the popup window be a hyperlink that, when clicked, will populate the Customer input text field on the parent page (thereby removing the text field's current contents).
I am using google translator in my own site to translate it to other languages ,but , when mouse is over the text , google popup page indicated , that containes original text in english! Can I disable this popup page ?
I am working on a site with a left menu that slides out, and I've converted it to the top to drop down. So far, it is working ok, but the submenu items need to be below the parent, preferably left aligned. I have played with it a bit and so far can't seem to achieve what I want. See below where I'm clicking Resources and the menu is way too high and over to the right.
Inside of a page, there is a iFrame, which houses WYSIWYG editor.I'm trying to pass data (passedString: html, inline css, text ...) to a popup.When I pass same string to same div with id="idx" located on a page, where iFrame is located, it receives it without problems.Problem appears, when I try to pass string to popup.
i have a popup from the parent window which allwos the user to add in new location. when the lcoation has been added succesfully. then thewindow closes and the parent gets refreshed. In particular, just the location listbox gets updated with the new value. the location listbox i generated from the database using asp.
I have a website which has a popup window (this only opens when the user chooses to open it). In the popup window I have a <select> control which lists a selection of "classes". Each class has a description and a class_id (stored in the value attribute of each option). The user will then select a class from the drop-down list.
What I want to do is have a control in the parent browser window which can store the class_id and the description that the user has selected in the popup window.
Any suggestions as to what control I should use in the parent window and more importantly how I get the value from the popup window (this must be client side code as the user will have entered other values into the form in the parent browser window)?
In parent window, while submitting form, popup window is called. In child popup window, parent window is forced to go invisible through code. But sometimes it is not working.Aim is to inactive all elements in parent form or invisible parent form while child window (popup) is opened. After closing popup, parent form should be in visible state.
I have a button that pops up a calender popup window. One of the arguments to the openCalendar() is the name of the element to insert the selected date into i.e a readonly text box - this works fine!
What I want to do is to detect when a value is inserted in to this box from the popup so I can make visible a "save" button - trouble is though the onfocus() & onchanged events are not fired when it's value changes.
Is there anyway to get some sort of event fired when a popup closes so I can test if the text box has changed? - or more likely am I overlooking something really obvious?
