CFTREE selected value

Hello,
I need to pass value of the selected item of the tree on popup window to the textbox on the parent page. I tried to use spec.selectedNode.getProperty('data').value and nothing happens. Is there any other way i can get the value of the selected node?  Any help is appreciated.

1)   PARENT WINDOW PARENT.CFM
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="Javascript">
function OpenTree(href)
{
      remote = window.open(href,'popUp','width=400,height=480,resizable=1,scrollbars=1');
}
</script>
 <cfinput name="spec1" type="text" value="" size="31" id="spec1">
 <a href="tree.cfm  onClick="OpenTree(this.href);return false"> <img src="../images/info.gif" width="20" height="20" border="0" ></a>
                 
2)   THIS IS POPUP WINDOW TREE.CFM
<cfquery name="selspec" datasource="#request.datasource#">
SELECT   specid,SPEC_ID,SPEC_DESC,parent_spec_id, me
from spec where spec_id IS NOT NULL

</cfquery>

<cfform name="specsel">
<cftree  format="html" name="spec">
    <cfoutput query="selspec">
      
      <cfif #spec_id# eq #parent_spec_id#>
      <cfset specparent="#me#">
       <cftreeitem  display="#specparent#" value="#specparent#"  img="FOLDER01.gif"  imgopen="FOLDER02.gif" expand="false">
       <cfelse>
              <cfset specchild=#SPEC_ID# & ' - ' & "#SPEC_DESC#">
              <cftreeitem display="#specchild#" value="#specchild#"  parent="#specparent#">
       </cfif>            
       </cfoutput>            
</cftree>
</cfform>

You can do href

    <cftreeitem value="#specparent#"   href="javascript:OpenTree( 'http://yourlinke.cfm?value=' + #specparent#" #); "  ...

When an item is selected (Clicked), you can bind with click event

See the code example


<cfform name="f1" format="html">
	<cftree  name="tree1" format="html" >
		<cftreeitem value="1" parent="0" display="Root Node"/>
		<cftreeitem value="2" parent="1" display="Branch 1"/>
		<cftreeitem value="3" parent="1" display="Branch 2"/>
		<cftreeitem value="21" parent="2" display="Branch 1.1"/>
		<cftreeitem value="22" parent="2" display="Branch 1.2"/>
		<cftreeitem value="31" parent="3" display="Branch 2.1"/>
		<cftreeitem value="32" parent="3" display="Branch 2.2"/>
		<cftreeitem value="33" parent="3" display="Branch 2.3"/>
	</cftree>
	<cfinput type="text" name="dbgText" bind="{tree1.node@click}"/>
</cfform>

If you want to pass selected value to the parent page, then I think you have to use some javascript.
