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 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...
I am currently creating which will allow the user to upload their own pictures. For this I am opening a new pop up window where the user can select the file they wish and then upload it (similar to ebay's picture upload). The pop up works fine and so does the file upload however I am having trouble transferring any data from the pop up window back to the parent window. I have been investigating the opener method but cannot seem to get it to work. Below is some simple code that I've been trying to get to work.
first page. <form name="loadpic" id="loadpic" action="createPost.php" method="post"> <br /> <br /> Testing transfer between pages... <input type="button" value="open pop up" onclick="window.open('popup.php','pop up box','width=400,height=200')" />
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 am not sure how to get my Back button to work because when I click on it doesn't do anything, I either want to to do that or I want to be able to bring up this popup and have the previous page still up behind the popup. Does anyone know how to do that? Here is the code I currently have
I've got some popup windows with help screens in them. The screens are other pages of my site specially sized to fit. Those pages have links to other pages, so users can navigate them inside the popup.So I thought I'd do two things:
1. Put a back button in the popup to let the user go back one or more pages in the help screens. But a simple button saying history.back() or history.go(-1) just does nothing.
2. Let the user refresh the pop-up content so that the user can go back to the first page of the help screen without having to close the pop-up and reopen it from the main page.But a simple refresh button saying location.reload(true) or window.location.reload() also does nothing.There is a button in there that works OK, window.close().Am I missing something fundamental about the nature of popup windows?I don't really want to have my help screens open in new browser tabs because I know people won't bother to close them.
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
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.
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 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.
