    Hello,

    I made a code to pass variables from pop-up window to parent window. Unfortunately this code is only working on Mozilla FireFox and not Internet Explorer. Can anyone help in this?

    JavaScript function to pass variables and close pop-up window:
    	function setValues()
    	{
    		var txt = document.getElementById("text").value;
    		var font_size = document.getElementById("font_size").value;
    		var font = document.getElementById("font");
    		font = font.options[font.selectedIndex].value;
    		var text_location = document.getElementById("text_location");
    		text_location = text_location.options[text_location.selectedIndex].value;
    		var color = document.getElementById("color").value;
    		
    		if (txt.length < 1 || font.length < 1 || font_size.length < 1 || font_size.toInt() < 1 || 
    				font.length < 1 || text_location.length < 1 || color.length != 7 || color[0] != '#')
    		{
    			alert("Please fill out all the fields correctly!");
    			return false;
    		}
    		
    		var ncolor = parseInt(color.substr(1,2), 16) + "," + parseInt(color.substr(3,2), 16) + "," + parseInt(color.substr(5,2), 16);
    		
    		
    		opener.document.getElementById("text").value = txt;
    		opener.document.getElementById("font").value = font;
    		opener.document.getElementById("font_size").value = font_size;
    		opener.document.getElementById("text_location").value = text_location;
    		opener.document.getElementById("color").value = ncolor;
    		self.close();
    		return false;
    	}

    I do this with the following script, it works in IE:

    Main page:
    
    <form>
    <input type=button name=choice onClick="window.open('page.php3','popuppage','width=850,toolbar=1,resizable=1,scrollbars=yes,height=700,top=100,left=100');" value="Select from Database">
    </form>
    
    HTML:
    Popup page:
    <SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
    <!-- Begin
    function sendValue<?php echo "" . $data['id'] . ""; ?>(s){
    var selvalue = s.value;
    window.opener.document.form.details.value = selvalue;
    window.opener.document.form.id.value = <?php echo "" . $data['id'] . "";?>;
    window.close();
    }
    //  End -->
    </script>
    <form name="selectform<?php echo "" . $data['id'] . "";?>">
    <input type="hidden" name="details" value="<?php echo "" . $data['name'] . "" ?> <?php echo "" . $data['address'] . "" ?> <?php echo "" . $data['phone'] . "" ?>">
    <input type=button value="Copy to Form" onClick="sendValue<?php echo "" . $data['id'] . "";?>(this.form.details);">
    </form>

    Tested in IE and FF;

    file t1.html
    
    <!--compatibility mode-->
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    <html>
    	<body>
    <form>
    	<input id="details" name="details">
    	<input type="button" name="choice" onClick="window.open('t2.html','popuppage','width=850,toolbar=1,resizable=1,scrollbars=yes,height=700,top=100,left=100');" value="Open popup">
    </form>
    </body>
    </html>
    
    Code (markup):
    file t2.html:
    
    <!--compatibility mode-->
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    <html>
    <head>
    </head>
    <body>
    <SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
    <!-- Begin
    function sendValue (s){
    var selvalue = s.value;
    window.opener.document.getElementById('details').value = selvalue;
    window.close();
    }
    //  End -->
    </script>
    <form name="selectform">
    <input name="details" value="">
    <input type=button value="Copy input to parent opener" onClick="sendValue(this.form.details);">
    </form> 
    
    </body>
    </html>
    
    Code (markup):
    Note that if you run this from your local harddrive, IE will likely display an activeX warning. This doesn't happen when you put it on a webserver.
