Try "thisItem.parent" instead.  Your implied use of "this" inside the function is not giving you the object that was passed as the input parameter "thisItem".  "this" inside the function probably means the function itself.

We might need to see the entire routine to give better advice.

It is not clear what you are trying to fetch with "thisValue".


function checkParentWindow(thisItem)
        {
              ;
                .....
              if(thisItem.parent!=null)
              {
                     thisItem.parent.hello(thisItem.thisValue);  //***** are you defining thisValue somewhere else? 
                     thisItem.close();
                }
        }
