I have a small helper popup to enable shortlisting few values out of which user will select after doing a small filter.
This value/object needs to be sent back to the parent window.

Has anyone done something similar before?

In our normal HTML/Javascript environment, we would that easily by doing something like

parent.window.formName.elementName.value = newValue;
and the value would be sent from child window to parent window.

Thanks in advance.

Usually I expose a public method in the parent which the popup can call and pass whatever objects that are required. Does this answer your question or did you mean something else?

yes, but the child window needs to get an handle on the parent window, then it can access the setter/getter and set the value.
Will try this approach and let you know,
Thanks Maneesh.
