View Full Version : How do I get back to my parent window ?

09-01-2006, 10:59 PM
Hi all.

My script launches a new window when the link is clicked.
here is the link:

<td class="ad_top_row"><a href='$Ad_detail' target='_blank' onclick=\"window.open (this.href, '$Ad_detail', 'height=800,width=960,scrollbars'); return false\" ><b>$event</b></a></td>

In the new window is a form that then calls another script. But I want to run that script in the parent window. Anyone know how do I do that ?

This is my form ( in the child window):

<form name="detail" action = "do_it.php" method = 'POST'>
<td style="vertical-align:center; height:30px;">
<input type="hidden" name="ad_ref" value= "<?php echo "$ad_ref"; ?>" >
<input type="hidden" name="section" value= "<?php echo "$section"; ?>" >
<input type="hidden" name="x_detail" value= "<?php echo "$N_detail"; ?>" >
<input type="hidden" name="x_yct" value= "<?php echo "$N_yct"; ?>" >
<input type="hidden" name="x_yct_op" value= "<?php echo "$N_yct_op"; ?>" >
<input type="TEXT" name="x_reason" value = "enter reason"
size = '40' maxlength='200' />
<input type="submit" class="btn_wide1" value = "Delete Advert and send Email."
onMouseout="this.style.backgroundColor='#ccffff'" >

Thanks very much for your help.

In the child window, you should be able to target the parent window (or even a form in the parent window) like this:

<script language="JavaScript">

And then the myParentFunction could be contained in your parent window and would be called from the child window. Is that what you're needing?
