Hi,

I have  a parent window and a popup child window, in my child window I have a link to a new url (in a ahref block), if I click the link it should send that url to the parent window and focus the parent window, and close the popup child window. Any diea?, a simple sample code would be appreciated

Thanks in advance

</head>

<body>
<a href="#" onclick="window.open('index1.html','my_win','height=300,width=300');">open popup</a>

Your Popup page:

<script language="javascript">
<!--
var popup_val = 10;

function RelocateAndClose(the_url) {
     opener.location = the_url;

Nice, but you'd still need the call to focus and close.

Why focus?  Just in case the user activated another window in the process.
