Problem with pop-up window

Hi all

I have a problem with pop-up window.

When I click a button I need to open a pop-up window, this I am doing with as I need to return some values from the pop-up window to main window.

I have 3 list boxes in pop-up window I am populating them with the values from database. For 2 of them I am directly including 2 jsp files to get values in them but the problem is with the 3rd list box in which I have to get values based on the values in the 2 list boxes. I am trying to get values in the 3rd list box using a javascript function on "onblure" event of the 2nd list box. This function will invoke a controller jsp and returns values as ArrayList to the pop-up window. Here I am getting values in the 3rd list box, but I am getting a new pop-up window i.e., now I am having 2 pop-up windows opened as a result of page refresh while submitting the values of the two list boxes to a controller jsp page.

Even I am getting values in 3rd list box in the newly opened pop-up window but not in the already opened pop-up window. When I am closing the newly opened pop-up window I am again left with 3rd list box empty in my original pop-up window.

Can anyone guide me how to avoid opening the new pop-up window..

Either post the form directly in tha smae page or look into Ajax.

Hi Eric

I am not aware of AJAX so I am not trying it currently. I tried submitting it to the same page, but it's opening a new window

What is your code? We are not magical mind readers that see in the future! (I wish I was)

Hi Eric,

This is my code to invoke the pop-up window:


and when I invoke this function control is transferred to viewoptns.jsp where I am retrieving values from database into form elements like listbox and upon selecting appropriate values in those list boxes I need to return
them to the calling function; for which I am using window.returnValues method.
