how to transfer values in different frames

Posted on 2006-07-05
Last Modified: 2010-04-01

I am designing frame html pages now. I divided the page into two frames. One is above and one is at the bottom. I want to let the right frame use the field values in left frame. But when I use some kinds of code like: parent.frame1.form1.textfield.value=frame2.form2.textfield2.value. It will give me error like: object required "parent". I changed the "parent" to "top", it still gives me error. Please help me figure out the problem. Thanks.
