I have a page that opens a child window that contains frames.  Within one of the frames, when the form is submitted, I would like to pass a value back to a hidden field held within the original parent window.

Is this the correct syntax?
parent.opener.window.document.all["hidReload"].value = "true";

but you won't be able to do this if the opener url is on a different domain than the popup/frame url
