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

Your main page:

<!doctype html public "-//w3c//dtd html 4.0 transitional//en">
<html>
<head>
<title> the main page </title>
</head>

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



Your Popup page:


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

function RelocateAndClose(the_url) {
     opener.location = the_url;
       opener.focus();
       window.close();
}
-->
</script>
<title>Test</title>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
</head>
<body>
<a href="#" onclick="RelocateAndClose('http://www.google.com/');">Go To Google</a><br>
<a href="#" onclick="RelocateAndClose('http://www.yahoo.com/');">Go To Yahoo!</a><br>
<br><br><br>
</body>
</html>

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.
