Hi,

How can I do this function when the user click on a button, it should open a popup window and pass the title and description value.

first I need to be able to open the popup window from my main page.

second the value that I have from the main page textbox (title) should be able to send it to the popup window.

Thank you for helping.
Lulu

here's what I have so far:

This is on the main form.

    <input type="button" name="SubLogEntry" id="SubLogEntry" value="Submit Log" onclick="return ValidateForm();" >


 function ValidateForm() {

  var title = $("#TitleOfIssueTxt").val(); 
  var description = $("#Description").val(); 
  var DateOccurred= $("#DateIdentifiedtxt").val(); 
  var TicketNumber =  $("#SelectTicketNumber").val() + $("#TicketNumberTxt").val() ;    
			
			//here I want to open up a popup window target _blank  and pass all the parameter values above to the new popup window.

		   var href = "Finddup.cfm";
			window.open($(this).prop('Finddup.cfm'),
				'640,480');
			
			return true;
			
        } 

Open in new window

You could just use http get and put the parameters into the URL. It might look something like this:

window.open($(this).prop('Finddup.cfm?param1=[value]&param2=[value]'),	'640,480');

No,
I don't want to pass my long title and description into my URL!

OK, as an alternative you could put the values into hidden input elements on your parent window then reference them from your popup window like this:

parent.document.getElementById('hiddenTextField').value

I am not getting the value from the parent window!

this code in the popup window

<script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery-1.10.2.min.js" ></script> 
<script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery-ui.min.js"></script>

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
    

	$.ajaxSetup({ cache: false });

	$(document).ready(function () {

var test = parent.document.getElementById('TitleOfIssueTxt').value
alert(test);

 $.ajaxSetup({ cache: false });


	});
	
	</script>

2nd alternative, assign the return value of the window.open() method to a variable then you can set values from the variable.

var popupWindow = window.open();

popupWindow.document.getElementById('passedvalueTextbox').value = [somevalue]

Open in new window
