There are 2 different jsp file - and script that belong to master form.

when i click on preview button , it opens a popup window (imgpreview.jsp).

Now i want to show all input fields value from master form to imppreview.jsp page.

means how can i get value of TITLE AND ITEM_DETAILS from master form, in place of title and description in
imgpreview.jsp when clicking on preview button .

how can i ???

Hi Pavan,
i can give you a hint on this. If i think i have got you correctly, then you want to pass parent's windows Title & some field descriptions into the child window (i.e. imagepreview.jsp). Right!!!
In that case what you do, in your parent window include a dummy form, with some name, put some hidden parameters as many as you awnt to pass to the child window. On click of "Preview", call a javascript function that sets these hidden parameters with the actual ITEM descriptions and then use the code like this:
var popup ='','newwin');
document.<dummy-form-name>.target = 'newwin';
document.<dummy-form-name>.action = "<imagepreview.jsp>" or, "<whichever way you are calling the child window>";

after this opens a new window/popup, access your passed parameters, even title (if you have already set that too, into a hidden param), using JSP Expression Tags. You know that, right.

Refreshing life every moment...

Thanks for giving me new idea , but i got another way i.e simple -

i have to just write a script tag in popup window like this -

<script language="JavaScript">

and in this case , no need to have a input tag. you can use it as a label.

I agree. Here's the link:
