Well, In a JSP page,.. when you click on a link i am opening a pop-up window for the user to select... using :
<SCRIPT language=JavaScript>
var aWindow = null;
self.name='mainwin';
function openWin(URL, w, h){
aWindow = open(URL,'aWindow','width='+w+',height='+h+',scrollbars=yes, status=yes');
aWindow.opener = self;
}
</SCRIPT>
and
<a href="javascript: openWin(/worklocations.html',650,545);">Change</a>
This is working fine..
but from the child window, i want to copy the selected value to the parent window..
i used :
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
function sendValue(s){
var selvalue = s.options[s.selectedIndex].value;
alert(selvalue); // for testing, working fine

window.opener.document.f1.wlocation.value=selvalue; // problem here
window.close();
}
</script>
But when i do this, it throws a JS Error saying Access is denied .. at
the following line : in the pop-up window
window.opener.document.f1.wlocation.value=selvalue;
Any idea why this is happening..??
your help would be greatly appreciated...
Thanks a lot.. ;-) I appreciate your help...
