Hi freinds,
Through my client side applet I connect to Reuters server
and retreive Stock names. From this applet I call
javascript function and load all these Stock names into
javascript array. Now I need to open a child window which
should get populated with these stock names. Imean pass this
javascript array to the child window to populate the stock names
in a drop down select box.
Can any one please help me how to do this.
Thanks lot in advance,
Ranch Hand

Hmmm.. I think you may be looking at it from the wrong angle. Try the reverse... try to get the array from the parent window. The child window has a property called opener which is a reference to the window that opened the current window. What you will want to do is create a function that returns your array in the parent window (such as getArray()) and call it from the child window using opener.getArray() which should allow you to use your array in the child window.
Hope this helps.
