Java example program to pass value from child window to parent window
We can pass values from a child window in Html to the parent window. This can be done very easily. Here is the program that takes the value from the child window and then pass it to the parent window. To explain this example we have made two HTML files as follows:
Here is the code for both of the HTML files as follows:
<form method=post name="form">
<table border=0 cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0 width=550>
<font size=2>Show Text</font>
<input type="text" name='parent_name' size='8'>
Open child window
opener.document.form.parent_name.value = document.frm.child_name.value;
<form name="frm" method=post action=''>
<table border=0 cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0 width=250>
Input Text :
<input type="text" name="child_name" size=12>
<input type="button" value="Submit" onclick="post_value();">
When we will run the parent file it will look like this:
By clicking on the link "Open Child window" link will open child window as
Here we have to insert or input text which is to be passed to the parent window.
Click on the submit button.
Here is the full code of both files. You can download it.
