When your popup form selection is submitted you could either directly update parent form elements or (if selection causes many updates in a parent form) submit popup form, save selection in database and return to this popup javascript directive to submit parent form (or just reload) in order to let it re-read data from DB and close popup window.

1.
function onSelection()
{
  opener.document.forms[0].somefields.value = window.document.forms[0].myselection.value;
  window.close();
}

2.

function onLoad()
{
  opener.document.forms[0].submit();
// or opener.location.href = opener.location.href;
  window.close();
}

direct changes in parent from popup:
1.1
<form ...>

<input type=button onclick="onSelection()">
</form>

1.2
<form ...>

<select myselection onchange="onSelection()">
</select>
</form>

2. refresh parent form after popup submit
<body onload="onLoad()">
</body>

adomsg,

I think if you use HTML button control instead of ASP server button control to popup new window it won't cause any server side postback. then popup page like follows -

<INPUT class="expButton" id="btnpopNewWin" onclick="javascript:window.open('frmpopNewwin.aspx,'POPUP','width=500,height=600,screenX=900,screenY=800,left=500,top=100')"type="button" value="Select" Height="22" Width="81">

where POPUP ="SesVar" will be some page scope string variable to be used as session variable name in parent page

in Child popup window while submitting the information put the info in local array and then
Session.Add("SesVar", arrOfPopChilddata)

now you can easily access the data using session variable POPUP as session(POPUP).

I think it'll work for you .... isn't it ?

Jyoti.
