Javascript opener window error

Hello all...

I am ripping out my hair with this.  I need to do a window.opener.runMyfunction(); and pass variables to a parent. I keep getting this error and I don't understand why.

Unsafe JavaScript attempt to access frame with URL https://www.somesite.com/consultants/party_booking.php?action=edit&evtid=129ecb11-f891-8f1b-5934-48f75ed114b5&osCsid=b2oheur9k68d62i8kig1uauu0klgb46f from frame with URL https://www.somesite.com/consultants/selphp.html. Domains, protocols and ports must match.

Both pages are over SSL, both on the same domain, both in the same path... Why is this thing bugging out??

The function is defined on the party_booking.php page and the popup is calling "window.opener.theFunction('sid', 'name'); " and getting this error.  I can't figure where the heck I am going wrong.

In the end I need this to work on FF3.x, IE, and Safari... but I don't see this as so complex.
BTW... It runs just fine when everything is on localhost.

Thanks!  -Cheers, Peter.

Call you post the window.open code? Could it have to do with one file being php while the other html? Can you try creating a php version of the selphp.html file and call that one to see if that works?

Hi flipz,
  popupRefSel is called from a button on the parent page.  That opens a pop-up window where there are multiple entries and select buttons.  When a select button is pressed "window.opener.doSelect("some sid", "some name");" is called.  This is where the error is registered.  The selphp.html was for testing purposes... the live code (as shown in the commented line below) is a php page with a different GET string.  But this didn't work and I was using the html page just for testing to save constantly running soap queries on my select window.

Thanks!  -Cheers, Peter.

  function popupRefSel() {
    window.open('selphp.html','popupRefSel','toolbar=no,location=no,directories=no,status=no,menubar=no,scrollbars=yes,resizable=yes,copyhistory=no,width=500,height=500,screenX=150,screenY=150,top=150,left=150')
//    window.open('party_booking.php?action=refsel','popupRefSel','toolbar=no,location=no,directories=no,status=no,menubar=no,scrollbars=yes,resizable=yes,copyhistory=no,width=500,height=500,screenX=150,screenY=150,top=150,left=150')
  }
 
  function doSelect(sid, snme){
alert(sid);
	document.party_form.referred.value = sid;
	document.party_form.referred_name.value = snme;
  }

Open in new window

I have FF 3.x and Safari for testing... I only have third hand info on IE 7.
And Yes the errors occur on both.

Thanks.  -Cheers, Peter.

Everything that I can find on this issue points to browser bugs. Haven't found any potential fixes yet - you can try a wild guess here. Call the window.open using an absolute path such as:

window.open('/consultants/selphp.html');

I'll post any more thoughts.... if I have any!

Flipz,
   Yea... tried that and it didn't work.

I am trying to set the values right from the window.  It didn't work in the beginning, but it seems to work now.  Here is what I am using:
  window.opener.document.party_form.referred_name.value = snme;
  window.opener.document.party_form.referred.value = sid;

I just don't understand why this didn't work to begin with...
Arg.  -Cheers, Peter.
