View Full Version : Writing form data to another value in a different window

Hi Everyone,

Having a little trouble of knowing where to start. I'm trying to take user inputted data options from a popup window form and put it in an existing form behind the current window.

Anyone have any ideas how to do this? Would appreciate any help. Thanks.

From the popup to the window that opened the popup:

Thanks for the reply,

Can you be a little more specific? Here is my code, it's a lot of stuff, but I'll list the pertinent spots:

This is in the head:

<script type="text/javascript">

function micradd( name, output ) {

newwin = window.open( '', '', 'toolbar=no', '', 'width=750, height=220' );
if ( !newwin.opener ) newwin.opener = self;
newwin.opener.document.bgColor = "FFFFFF";
with ( newwin.document ) {

write( '<body onLoad="document.checkcustomize.<?php print "F$n"; ?>.focus()">' );
write( '<form name=micrcustomize method=post onSubmit= ' + output + '=this.value;window.close();>' );
//write( ' onSubmit=opener.document.bgColor="FFFFFF";window.close()>' );
write( 'To correctly customize your check, we need the exact ' );
write( '<a href="custom_help.php?help=MICR&from=help">MICR</a> ' );
write( 'spacing that your bank, or lending institution, requires.<br><br>' );
write( '<ol>' );
write( '<li>Click <a href="micrgauge_pdf.php">here</a> to download the printable MICR gauge. (Choose "Save As..." when prompted)</li> ');
write( '<br>' );
write( '<li>Print out the document on your printer.</li>' );
write( '<br>' );
write( '<li>Follow the instructions and fill in the necessary selections below</li> <br><br>' );
write( '</ol>' );

write( '<table border=0 cellspacing=0 cellpadding=0>' );
write( '<?php
for ($n = 56; $n > 0; $n--) {

if ($cols == 8) {

$cols = 0;
print "</tr><tr>";

print "<td align=right>$n";
print ":&nbsp;";

print "<select name=F$n>";
print "<option value=x></option>";
print "<option value=0>0</option>";
print "<option value=1>1</option>";
print "<option value=2>2</option>";
print "<option value=3>3</option>";
print "<option value=4>4</option>";
print "<option value=5>5</option>";
print "<option value=6>6</option>";
print "<option value=7>7</option>";
print "<option value=8>8</option>";
print "<option value=9>9</option>";
print "<option value=A>A</option>";
print "<option value=B>B</option>";
print "<option value=C>C</option>";
print "<option value=D>D</option>";
print "</select>";

print "</td>";

?>' );
write ( '</table>' );

write( '<br><br>' );
write( '<center>' );
write( '<input type=submit value="Finish">' );
write( '</center></form>' );

Now this is the value needing to be changed with the values from the above code:

Note: This part of the code is in a form named "checkcustomize"

<input type="text" size="41" maxlength="56" tabindex="20" name="micr">
<span style="color: #ff0000;">&nbsp;*</span>
&nbsp;&nbsp;Choose from <a href="javascript:micradd('Micr Value', 'opener.document.checkcustomize.micr.value');">here</a>

The Problem is this:
When I click the finish button on the popup window I get an 'undefined' message in the box where I need the values. I also need all 56 spaces defined in the text box. This is for a customer selecting the way their bank information on the bottom of their check is formatted. They use a gauge to determine how the numbering is done and X's if there is nothing selected. Any help to just get the values over would be much appreciated. Thanks for looking. :eek:
