I have a popup window from my page and after the user finishes what they did, the popup window closes.
is there anything I can script in javascript or jquery on the popup box to make something happen to a selector on the parent window?

Let's say I don't use jquery.

window.opener.form1["cancelreason" + dsrow].value="test";
window.opener.form1["status" + dsrow].style.visibility = "hidden";


the first line works,  the second one doesn't

visibility works.
how can I change the background-color?
does it make a difference that I am working off a select box?
