|Populating a form in a popup from the parent webpage|
| 3:53 pm on May 14, 2003 (gmt 0)|
I am developing in PHP,JS,HTML,MySQL.
I have a list of links on a page. Each link should call a JS function to 'pop' another window up to display more detail.
The JS code:
vWindow = window.open('detail.php','Detail',style);
The deatil depends on which link was clicked.
Is there any way of populating fields in the popup window (depending on the link clicked)from the parent . I've tried things like...
vWindow.document.field1.innerHTML = "The detail text";
vWindow.field1.innerHTML = "The detail text";
Does that make sense?
Could I do it by POSTing variables to the detail.php script and then the detail can be read from the database depending on the variable that was POSTed?
Thanks in Advance

yeah, do something like this:
vWindow = window.open('detail.php?field1=value1&field2=value2','Detail',style);
then in detail.php do this:
<input type='text' name='field1' value='$_POST['field1']'>
<input type='text' name='field2' value='$_POST['field2']'>

Thanks for the reply.
my code is:
vWindow = window.open('detail.php?x=00002','Detail',style);
I've called the php page as suggested, but when I reference the posted variable ($_POST['x']), it's empty.

hmmm, that is rather odd... pull up the properties on the pop-up and make sure that the 'x=00001' part is getting passed in the javascipt to the page...
other than that i dont have any good ideas, you can mail me with URLs and ill check it out if you like. i will need sample code as well....
