Hi ,

         My problem is, i am creating a online html editor, each tag having some set of attributes, so if the user press any button (html tag button) i wants to generate a new window for getting properties value of particular html tag. For each tag i wants to create a new window to get that tag's properties's value. The child window will have one submit or push button. Once the submit or push button get activate, i wants to get all the fields value inside the child window from parent window.

Can i get field's value which is on child window from parent window using childwindow referernce or any other way?


Thanks.
