View Full Version : Mozilla vs IE Javascript window.opener

03-11-2005, 06:20 PM
this has probably been posted a billion times .......... BUT

when using upload features on my sites, i pop up a window to upload images/docs(progress.asp upload). this window posts to a third page for the upload functions(progress_upload.asp). In IE window.opener.formname.fieldname.value='variable'. this works famously with IE, but not with Mozilla FF and MAC OS IE 5.+. it has no problem with posting back the value. Javascript does not pass the value back and hangs in mozilla and macOS IE5.+ and thus will not do the window.close(). What is the workaround so that it will work for both browsers.??

window.opener.EditForm.hdnform.value ="<%=File.OriginalFileName%>";
alert("upload successful");

I see this in a lot of blogs and forums, but no good examples

please help

Try fully qualifying the element reference.
