Two ways to pass values in the new window.


then use this str in

Another way is to use --> window.parent.parentformname.fieldname.value
in child window to access the value of parent window.

Hope this will help you.

Cheers :)

When you use window.open it returns a reference to the new window. You can use that to pass information:
var oNewWin = window.open(.....);
oNewWin.newVariable = "Joe";
Then in your child window:
Alternatively you can access the parent from the child using window.opener:
