Hi Experts,

I am having issues closing a pop-up window on the click of a link.

Please see code for errors.

Basic Setup
Page 1
Has 1 Hidden and 1 Visible Input to be updated from another Source
Page 2
PopUp Iframe
Visit http://www.dynamicdrive.com/ for full source code
Inside Iframe
Page 3
Has Href to set off back to Original

Error I am getting is
ratewin is not defined
I have an alert in the main window, and the input boxes are being filled fine, just can't get the floating iframe to close after it has been used.
I put the close function back in the Parent Window as that is where it is defined?
I look forward to your thoughts and questions probably.

I am a bit of a newby to Java/ Ajax and DHTML
I am a VBA Programmer.
---Code to Open Window ----

<script type="text/javascript" src="../../dhtmlwindow/windowfiles/dhtmlwindow.js">

</script>
 

<SCRIPT ID=clientEventHandlersJS LANGUAGE=javascript>

function OpenRateWin(BankCode) {

//alert (BankCode);

var ratewin = dhtmlwindow.open('Select Rate', 'iframe', '../Trans/AddBanksRatesMain_nh.asp?BankCode=' + BankCode, 'Select Rate', 'width=1000px,height=600px,center=1');
 

}
 

function closeRateWin_onchange() {

	alert("test");

	ratewin.close(); return false;

}

//-->

</SCRIPT>
 

--Href to Set off Code --

					Response.Write "<td class=BondsNav><a href=javascript:updaterateparent(" & rsD.Fields(i+1).Value & "," & rsD.Fields(i).Value & ") title=Use Rate>" & FormatNumber(rsD.Fields(i).Value, 2) & "</a></td>"				
 

--Java function this Href Runs --

<SCRIPT ID=clientEventHandlersJS LANGUAGE=javascript>

<!--

function updaterateparent(varRateID, txtRate) {
 

	if (typeof(parent.rate_onclick)=='function') parent.rate_onclick(varRateID, txtRate);

}
 

//-->

</SCRIPT>

-- Which in Turn runs --

<SCRIPT ID=clientEventHandlersJS LANGUAGE=javascript>

function rate_onclick(varRateID, txtRate) {

	//alert(varRateID + txtRate);

     var winOpener = window.opener;

	 window.parent.Frmcheckall.txtRateID.value = varRateID;

     window.parent.Frmcheckall.txtRate.value = txtRate;

	//parent.closeRateWin_onchange(this);

	if (typeof(parent.closeRateWin_onchange)=='function') { 

		//alert("testIF");

		parent.closeRateWin_onchange();

	}

}

</SCRIPT>

-- Which leads me back to my original window to close its child iframe--

You have declared the variable as a local variable in the functon, so it doesn't exist outside the function. Declare it outside the function:
var ratewin;
 

function OpenRateWin(BankCode) {

  ratewin = dhtmlwindow.open('Select Rate', 'iframe', '../Trans/AddBanksRatesMain_nh.asp?BankCode=' + BankCode, 'Select Rate', 'width=1000px,height=600px,center=1');

}

Open in new window
