Way Of Passing Variable From Parent Window To Popup Window
Jun 27, 2002
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.
i have a form that will pass the value of a child window listbox choices to a parent window, and also the hidden value (via a variable) of the choices in the child window listbox will appears also in the parent window textbox when i hit the submit button in the child window, and the values of the listbox are taken from a acess database, the form works very well, except when i added the following line to my child window: PHP Code:
the hidden value in the listbox of child window wont appear in the textbox in the parent window, when i added the above line.
the above line function as a filtering to my list in the child window, and it is the main part of my code. when i removed the above line, the passing of values to parent window will works fine, except that the filtering function will not work anymore, but i want it both to work, but have no luck. Code:
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?
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 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 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:
Parent window var variableName="http://www.google.com" (send variable to child window)
Child window (pick up variable from parent window and drop it into the link's URL) <a href="(variableName);">google</a>
This might seem like a crazy way of doing things but it's totally neccasery in the project I'm working on for various reasons.
Not sure if its a variable it needs but either way it needs to be in the js somewhere in the parent and the child needs to read it within the link. Everywhere I've looked on the internet shows how to do this with forms etc but I can't make it work for a URL.
I am opening a pop up in a new window (window.open) . I have no control on the code of the pop up. Its a third party pop up (twitter). Now that generates a callback url and I can specify that.My problem is the callback page is loaded on the pop up window. I want that window to close and have the call back page loaded on the parent window.
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.
