Hello Experts.
Please help.
I have two forms
Parent.cfm   -   has cfselect LIST1 and cfinput BOX1
Child.cfm  -       popupwindow with cfinput BOX2
 I need to pass val from BOX2 to LIST1.
I have no problem to pass val from BOX2 to BOX1 using following

opener.AcceptingControl.value = val

But how can i add  val to LIST1 using the same approach?

Thank you in advance.

>> But how can i add  val to LIST1 using the same approach?

   Create a function on Parent.cfm that adds an option to LIST1.  Something like

           function yourFunctionName(theValue) {
                 var elem = document.getElementById('TheIDOfYourLIST1Control');
                 elem.options[elem.options.length] = new Option(theValue, theValue);
           }

   Then call it from your popup window.

        window.opener.yourFunctioName( valueToAdd );


   BTW: Since select lists have a "value" and "text", you can either use the same
   value  for both in your function _or_ supply two parameters .

It worked! Perfect!
What was missing is this piece :   "elem.options[elem.options.length]".
Thanks a lot!
