    Lightbulb Submit a form in popup window to opener window

    I have a form that is in a popup window. I need the form to submit to the opener window. Is is possible to do that? The opener window is the main window so it is does not have a name and there are no framesets.

    <form action="something.php" method="post" target="????">
    I'd like to use window.opener in the target but that's JavaScript...

    I know somebody has done this before and has the code.

    Thanks!

    Maybe I should have posted this in the JavaScript forum. Can a moderator please move it. Thanks.

    well you could just use this...

    Code:
    <form action="openerwindow.php" method="post">
    that will just send the form data to the opener window - because if I am correct then your popup is likely another html file? right?

    So just change "openerwindow.php" to the filename for your file that opens the popup and your good to go!
