I have a search form in a modal window.  It returns ID values.  I want to click that href and have the ID appear in a textbox on the parent form and close the modal window.

Here is a screenshot of what i am looking to do:

OK. We'll need more info to help you out, but here's a general overview. You would bind the click() event of the link, and then set the textbox to the text inside of the link. We'd need to know the names / classes or ID or the links and the textbox.

Assume your links have a class of productID, and your textbox has an id of selectedProduct:

<a href="#" class="productID">057-10-2000</a>
<input type="text" id="selectedProduct" value="" />

Open in new window


Your jQuery would look something like this:

$('.productID').click(function(e) {
   e.preventDefault();
   $('#selectedProduct').val($(this).text());
});

Open in new window


As to how you close the modal window, that will depend on how you created it. If you use a plugin of some sort, then there's likely to be a close() method, but as I said - we'll need more info.

You can see a very simple, working demo here -> http://jsfiddle.net/ChrisStanyon/uno5b1bk/

Bingo, worked perfectly.  Thank you!  It wasn't working at first until i moved the jQuery code to that modal window page of code.  then it worked exactly how i needed it.
