to open window use
window.open("mytest.aspx,"","",);

to return value from child..

if you have a textbox on parent and from child you can assign value or you can call some parent form js function from child ..

lets supposed you have a close button on child when you click that . it work like this

window.operner.form1.textboxTest.value=document.for1.getElementByID('myChildTextBox').value;

use window.open("url ") in click event handler. this will cause to open new window without postback
window.open("http://www.google.com")

Open in new window

sorry .. here is more explanation
you may write JS function in ASPX and call where you need to open window..
like <script language="Javascript">
function OpenChildwindow()
{
window.open("mytest.aspx","Child Window"," ");
}

// on the form you have a button .. onclick event of that button you may call above function
OR
directly in button
onclick="Javascript:window.open('test.aspx','test');
thanks
