Row index of html table

Posted on 2004-09-30

I have a html table which gets dynamically filled with text boxes and buttons. Each row has few text boxes and a button.
Click on the buttons opens a pop up window from which they select data which is passed back to original form.

I need to know the row index of the table so that selected data gets pasted into the correct row.

Here's the code.

<TABLE id="Table4" cellSpacing="1" cellPadding="1" width="300" border="1">
<% for i = 1 to 2%>
<TD><A href="'webform1.aspx?formname=Form1.TextBox1','my_window','width=300,height=300');my_window.focus();">Select</A></TD>
<TD><INPUT type="text"></TD>
<TD><INPUT type="text"></TD>
<TD><INPUT type="text"></TD>
<TD><INPUT type="text"></TD>
<TD><INPUT type="text"></TD>
<%next i %>

if yoy are printing the return value from webform1.aspx in the textbox1..which is a textbox which corresponds to the same row...then you don't have to worry about row index right?
