setting value of label on parent page with javascript

Hi,

I have test1.aspx and test2.aspx

Test1.aspx simply has an asp:label an asp:textbox and a standard href link.

The link looks like:
<ahref="javascript:;" onclick="window.open('Test2.aspx?label=lblTest','cal','width=530,height=300,left=0,top=0')"><img src="Images/po.bmp" border="0" alt=""/></a>

This opens up test2.aspx fine.

Then on the page load of test2.aspx I have:
  Dim strScript As String = ""
        strScript = "<script>"

        strScript += "window.opener.document.forms(0).getelementbyid(lblTest).innerText = 'gem';"
        'strScript += "window.opener.document.forms(0).txtTest.value = 'gem';"


        strScript += "self.close()"
       
        strScript += "</" + "script>"

        ClientScript.RegisterClientScriptBlock(Me.GetType(), "PopUpwindowOpen", strScript)

As you can see the textbox line is commented out.

This works fine.

If its there on its own, the value gem gets written into the textbox and the page closes.

With the innertext line in though it is erroring.

Basically what I need to know is what is wrong with:
        strScript += "window.opener.document.forms(0).getelementbyid(lblTest).innerText = 'gem';"

to get it working.

The label gets rendered on test1.aspx as:
<span id="lblTest"></span>


Thanks in advance

change it to :
 strScript += "window.opener.document.forms(0).getelementbyid('" & lblTest.ClientID & "').InnerText = 'gem';"

yeah but lblTest is test1.aspx whereas the code behind you are refering to is on test2.aspx?

Sorry I didn't clearly state that but I am using window.opener so there was a clue in there :)

change your link to this :
<a id="lnkOpenWindow" href="javascript:;" ><img src="Images/po.bmp" border="0" alt=""/></a>

in the code behind on test1.aspx put this in Page_PreRenderComplete :
lnkOpenWindow.Attributes.Add("Onclick", "window.open('Test2.aspx?label=' & lblTest.ClientId & ','cal','width=530,height=300,left=0,top=0')"

in the code behind on test2.aspx put this:
strScript += "window.opener.document.forms(0).getelementbyid('" & Request.QueryString("label") & "').InnerText = 'gem';"

Hi,

I'm presuming you haven't actually run that code as there are a number of errors in it that is stopping it from running........?

Right the script that is getting created is:
<script>window.opener.document.forms(0).getelementbyid('lblTest').innerText = 'gem';</script>

I'm getting:
Message: Object doesn't support this property or method
Line: 15
Char: 1
Code: 0
URI: http://localhost:3376/ImportPayments/Test2.aspx?label=lblTest

still no joy.

Its rendering as:
<script>window.opener.document.forms(0).getElementById ('lblTest').innerText = 'gem';</script>

Hmm i suspect the problem is that the label on the test1.aspx page is being rendered as a span.

try changing  the following line so there are no single quotes round the lblTest.ClientId :
lnkOpenWindow.Attributes.Add("Onclick", "window.open('Test2.aspx?label=" & lblTest.ClientId & ",'cal','width=530,height=300,left=0,top=0')"

Probably worth testing again at this point.
But I think you will need to change the following line removing the single quotes again and chaning innerText to innerHTML

strScript += "window.opener.document.forms(0).getElementById(" & Request.QueryString("label") & ").innerHTML = 'gem';"
