Alter Function: Target Textbox instead of Alert

Hi all,

I need to modify this function to send the date value to a textbox within the page instead of to an alert box:

function message(cell)

The HTML form is directly under the calendar object on the same page:

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">calendar();</SCRIPT>

<!-- TEXT BOX -->
<form method="post" action="report.html">
<input type="text" name="StartDate" id="StartDate" value="01/01/2003" size="8" maxlength=10>

I'm looking for something similar to this, except it targets a textbox within the page:

window.opener.document.getElementById['StartDate'].value = cellday(cell);

Yes, almost like that. I found it on another site. The first set of brackets should be parenthesis, but you are basically right:


Thanks for taking the time.
