Hello,
I have a simple form with a textarea and a button. When the button is pressed, a window pops up that contains an input box and an another textarea. When the button inside the pop up window is pressed, the value from the child textarea is passed back to the parent textarea.

The question is, how do I pass the value in the child input box and just store it in a variable inside the parent window?

On a side note, is there a command in javascript to open a word document?

you can write in child window button declaration: onclick="document.parent.form_name.textarea_name.value = document.child_form_name.child_textarea_name.value" is that i understood?

function call()
      {
            open("childwnd.html")
      }
</script>
<textarea name ="T1" rows="2" cols="22"></textarea>
<p><input type="button" value="Pop" name="B1" onclick ="call()"></p>
<p><input type="button" value="Get Value" name="B2" onclick ="alert(ls_value)"></p>

<script language="javascript">
function call_return()
      {
            var ls_text = document.frm_child.text1.value
            ls_text = document.frm_child.T1.value
            self.opener.ls_value = ls_text
            self.close()
      }
</script>

hi guys,
is there any way i can pass the multiple-selected checbox value from child to parent?

i was thinking of an array to pass multiple values from child and iterate the return values in parent (and store it in the text box).
Appreciate any valueable inputs.
