I really need help badly. I have searched for a solution and tried many different ways.

My parent window wants to access the value of a text field in its popup window. The file name of the popup window is kept in a configuration file. I have managed to navigate from the parent window and popup a child window. The child window has a form, which has a text field and a button to submit the form. I just could not get the JavaScript specification in the popup window right. How do I pass the value that is entered by users in the text field to the buttion? So that the value can be picked up by the JavaScript in the popup window? Note that my browser thinks that the attribute called "var" is invalid in the input text field.

Here is the code for the parent window:
