Transfer Data From Pop Up Window To Parent Window?
Jan 14, 2011
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.
<form name="loadpic" id="loadpic" action="createPost.php" method="post">
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 two pages parent.html and child.html, the parent has a link called "Search", when clicked the child open in a modal centered window that has a search form, the search in the child return a list of rows, so when clicking a row the child window close and data is transferred to the parent.
I have a script that opens up another window and a task gets executed, all of that is fine, but is there anyway that the parent window (the window that gets open) can pass data to the window that opened it? (I pretty much want to enable a button on that page)
I am trying to pass user data from a parent window to a child window. I read somewhere that if i want to pass data as soon as child window opens i need to add a pause for the form elements to load. I am using the code snippet below.objf.form_parent.text1 is a text field in the parent window and newWindow.document.test.text1. is a field in child window. Can anyone help what I am doing wrong. Code:
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.
when i try to add a data from popup list box to parent window listbox it pops an error. Servlet threw an exception. This is my code
var optionvalue=thisForm.behaviourname.options[i].value; var len=window.opener.document.FormMaterialDetail.inparameterid.options.length; window.opener.document.FormMaterialDetail.inparameterid.options[len] = new Option(thisForm.behaviourname.options[i].text, optionvalue);
I am trying to usw window.open , upload a file in the child window and then referesh the parent window. But once upload is done, window . opener .location.href or opener.location.replace sends a message back but I get a pop up blocker, so if I turn pop up blocker off, it opens in new page. I just want the parent page to refresh on the same window. This works on some employees stations but not on others..I don't know if there are any settings on IE that need to change, I tried everything...weird. does any one done this before?
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'm using window.showModalDialog but having an issue trying to set the parent window(main browser). I open modal window A which is then opens modal window B, top of modal window B onload I do window.opener.close()". My issue now is when i'm finished with B I set parent window(main browser) to a new url with window.opener.location. So my problem is modal window A the parent has been closed so window.opener.location will not work.
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'm building a program for webmasters, and I need to have it so that I can have an <INPUT> button that, when clicked, will open up a new window (400x350 pixels) with a list of links. However, when the person clicks one of those links, the window closes, the value of an <input type="text" name="parentdoc" size="8" maxlength="8" readonly> is updated.
How would I accomplish 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 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.
