Yeah, right ... put the complete code.  Listen, I can help but with what you've given, how could anyone put complete code?

Here's the issue:  if you are using a modal window from IE's showModalDialog method, you simply cannot submit the page to itself.  You have two options:

1)  if you want the modal window to stay open, you have to put a hidden frame like an iframe there and load the page inside the iframe.  Then you can submit normally.

2)  if you just want to submit data back to the main page, you have use the showModalDialog properly.  You pass an object to the modal window via the second argument.  Inside the modal window, you can manipulate the object with javascript and send it back.

Like so:

In main page:

<script language="javascript">
function doIt(){
myVar = new Array("xxx");
alert(myVar[0]); //says "xxx"
result = showModalDialog("myPage.html",myVar);
alert(myVar[0]); //says "yyy"
}
</script>
<input type="button" onclick="doIt()">



In modal:

<script language="javascript">
function doIt(){
newVar = window.dialogArguments;
alert(newVar[0]); //will say "xxx";
window.dialogArguments[0] = "yyy";
window.close();
}
</script>
<input type="button" onclick="doIt()">
