I have a jsp page which contains a radio button that brings a text area when clicked along with a hyperlink. The hyperlink opens a pop up window when clicked. The pop up window populates few values in a table with checkboxes to select them. There is a button that must send the selected vales to the parent page into the textarea when clicked.
What helps me a lot for this kind of requirements: I open the popup and retain the handle. Then I set a variable of that window to the form I want to send the variables back. This way you have direct access to the underlying fields. Shortens your code quite a bit. Hth ;-) stw P.s.: Stick to DOM methods, then it will work X-Browser.
