    Need Help for Pop Up windows

    I have a script in which from parent browser, I open a pop up window.
    Clicking submit on Pop up window, should close the pop up window and submit the
    values to the parent window.

    The code on parent window(say parent.php) is something like this:

    <script language=javascript>"jobpost";'xyz.php', 'xxx');

    The code on xyz.php is something like this:
    <form name=form1 method=post target=jobpost>
    <input type=button value="Apply" onclick="javascript:OnApply();">

    <script language=javascript>
    function onApply(){

    The above code works on windows IE as well as NN.
    But it doesnot work on Mac. It gives lot of errors . When I do not submit to parent window, no error comes.

    Can anyone help me on this issue?I have no button named Submit in pop up window as well as parent window.

    Thanks for this much help.

    The problem is I need values from pop up window into the parent window.

    If I use, top.opener.location.href, then the page doesnot get submitted and I donot get values.

    If I use javascript to assign values, like top.opener.form1.field1.value it gives problem with array elements.

    I am using php to code.

    I have a field called grades which is an array.
    So to use something like following, doesnt work in Javascript.

    document.popup.grades[].value = top.opener.posting.grades[].value;

    Do you have any suggestion for the above problem?

    Hmm... I see what you are saying.. Ok what I would do is submit the form to <?=$_SERVER["PHP_SELF"]?> then parse your post variables

    PHP Code:
    // Get the number of values in $grades array
    $numGrades count($_POST['grades']);

    // Go through every grade value and assign a new variable name
    for ($i=0$i<$numGrades$i++)
    $gradeArr[] = "grades{$i}=".$_POST['grades'][$i];

    // Transform the array into a URL string
    $grades implode('&'$gradeArr);

    // You might want to urlencode the string afterwards
    $grades urlencode($grades); 
    This will stick your array into this form:


    so forth and so forth.. that should help you out a bit there..
