Variable in JavaScript

I am trying to pass a javascript variable to another html page, the code is below.
The first code gets the URL from where the page was loaded from.  The second script opens up the page javascript.html and sends var1 and var2 so I can use them.  this all works perfectly.  What I want to do is pass the value "parent.location" as var1.  Hitting a road block.  




FirstCode.
<script type="text/javascript">

function getParent(){

alert(parent.location);

}

</script>

Second Code.

<script type="texas/javascript"
src="javascript.html?var1=bob&var2=frank">
</script>

I don't it exactly. Do you load Firstcode using SecodeCode? Then why would you pass parent.location, because you already have it in Firstcode?

No, I am looking up the parent.location then I am calling a page that does processing via the second code.

Try this:





<script type="texas/javascript"
src="javascript.html?var1="+parent.location+"&var2=frank">
</script>

You should put the javascript in a javascript file. You could call this file javascript.js, Inside it there should only be javascript, so without the script tags.

function getParent(){

alert(parent.location);

}

</script>
</head>

Sorry, I do not get exactly what is your goal. Do you only want to call another javascript file, or do you want to load another html file? If so, you should not use <script src="..."> , but a frame.

I am trying to send the parent.location to another html file via URL Variable var1.  It works perfectly sending a hard coded ...var1=Bob  over to the html file.
