Javascript question (again)

Hi experts,

I have a form displayed by a webpage. On that form is a hidden field with a value (not visible for the owner of the document)
I want to create a button that will create a poopup (separate window) with this value on it. This vlaue must be editable for this user (using this popup window) and be saved to the original document.

I know how to extract this value using Javascript and I will be able to display this in a separate window, but I don't know how to get this information back to the original form...

Greetings,

Bob

You could use javascript ("myWin=window.open()") and launch an agent, form or page in it.
Add a field (in HTML code if you have to; in an agent you can print everything from <HTML> to </HTML> to the calling window) to that window and add a button. Use the onClick event to store the new value in the field in the "opener"-window and to close the pop-up window.
Also: set focus to the pop-up window ("myWin").

If you like to have a reduced explanation formated for this special question, give me a note.

Zvonko,

I have read the question snocross was asking, but that's different. Snocross wanted to transport the value to the newly created form and I want to create a new form with a selection option on it. When the selection is made, I want this value back to the "parent" window....

OK Bob,

that wath you ask for was the starting point for Sno. I have changed this basic behaviour (you ask for) to extended behaviour Sno asked.

So let me summerize wath you need for this basic behaviour.
1.) You need this first form with the button to open the popup window. Let us name this form: "MainDoc"
2.) You have on this MainDoc form a hidden field. Let us name this field: "Selection"
3.) On the MainDoc form is a button to open the popup window. Name the button: "Choose"
4.) The code below the button to open the popup form is in JavaScript and follows here:
window.open('PopUpForm','Title','height=200,width=200')
5.) Use for the popup window also a Notes form. Name this form "PopUpForm"
6.) On this popup form "PopUpForm" you need a field of type DialogList.  Name the field:  "Selector"
7.) DialogList values for "Selector" can be anything you like.
8.) Important for this "Selector" field is its onChange event. Here the JavaScript line for this onChange event:
window.opener.document.forms[0].Selection.value=this[this.selectedIndex].text;window.close()
9.) That is all!!!

For the first tests let the field "Selection" on the form "MainDoc" unhidden. After the test let it disapear with the html attribute: "type=hidden"

Good luck,
zvonko
