I'm looking for a way to get a variable from a parent window in a child window. I'm aware that you can write the variable to a hidden field and then get the field's value in the child window, but I'm looking for a cleaner (all JS preferable) way of doing this.
Something like this, but I believe this is an out-dated solution code...
Put a link on my page that will open an external site (over which I have no control) in a pop-up window. When the user closes the pop-up, I want my original page to redirect to another page. The difficulty I'm having is that I can't add any code to the page in the pop-up as it's not my site.
I have created and opened a child window called "checkwin" and have written some data to it. If the data is valid, I want the user to click on the 'CONFIRM' button on the child window, at which time I want the "submit()" function for the form on the parent window to be executed. If the data is invalid the user clicks on 'MODIFY' and I want focus to return to a field on the parent form. However, when I click on the "CONFIRM" or "MODIFY" buttons on the child window, nothing happens. Here is the code:
I have a parent page which I don't have control of. I call my child page from parent page, perform some operations and once I click update child window should close and parent window should be refreshed.Everything seems to work fine except the parent page not refreshing.I tried using window.opener.location.reload(true). But it makes a postback in the parent page and so the values that I update are lost because it makes a postback with the previous values.I tried window.opener.document.locationwindow.opener.document.location. But this doesn't refresh my parent page.
Iam using mozilla firebird. I have three popups displayed at one point of time...if I close one the other two goes hidden....could you please suggest me the reason for this behaviour and how to overcome it.....
While I opened......these child windows(popup)...from the main window I have given "dependent=yes" in the window.open statement.
The sameway I want to close the Child windows opened from the parent window using IE. I use IE 6.0.
I have parent page with 10 child window and i want to close all child window when click on close session button on parent but first i need to check whether any child window open or not after that action should be done for close the child window.
At the moment, I have a page listing keywords associated with an image. The user can click an 'add keyword' link, which loads a child window where they have a form to select & add extra keywords. Now, at the moment when they submit the form, the page reloads the parent window using an onload event. However, I would prefer it if it only reloaded the DIV which holds their keyword list.
My thinking was I could do it with AJAX or something, but I can't find anywhere that even mentions if it's possible. Can anyone help? Is this possible, or am I too ambitious?
I was curious one day and started to explore the whole idea of a document opening a pop up and that pop up being able to send data, that was input by the user, back to the parent. Does anyone have expirence with this?
I have a closed box system which opens an html page. The page closes by the system. I have access to the html page. I added code to open a child window from this page. However when the parent window closes, the child closes too. Is there a way to keep the child window open? Yes keep it orphaned.
