Re: [vox-tech] [OT] JavaScript / HTML Help: Popup windows and forms

You can use Javascript to open up a popup window from the main window.
The popup window can close itself with Javascript (using the "onSubmit="
attribute I think).  Those are simple enough.

The tricky part is getting the popup window (before it closes itself) to
make the main window load a new page.  You can do that also with
Javascript and the "onSubmit" attribute, by referencing the popup window's
parent window (which gets defined automatically when the main window
creates the popup window) and telling that parent window to load a new
address.  I'm sure you can find the right commands for it easily on
Google; I think that's how I found it last time.  Let me know if you can't
figure it out and I'll try to dig up some code.
