    Is it actually finding the 'CmdAction' element?

    In the code above you've assigned a name of 'CmdAction' but not an id.

    Either add an id attribute to your hidden field, or use

    Yea, what he said. getElementById looks for the id attribute, not the name attribute. Took me a little bit to see it so I can understand the over site.

    ASP with javascript not working in Mac


    sorry for disturb u again....

    i have one input tag , value took from the popup window there by clicking on the text...

    <input size=41 type=text class=""text"" readonly name=" & TbFieldName & " value="""& estlocname &"""><input type=hidden id=" & TbFieldName1 & " name=" & TbFieldName1 &" value="""& estlocid &"""><A HREF='javascript:popWin(""" & TbFieldName & """,""" & TbFieldName1 & """,""Est"")'></a>

    by the above code, javascript func for opening one popup..

    function PopWin(vField, vFieldId, vParam )

    var nW ="", "popup", "resizable=yes,scrollbars=yes,top=100,left=100,width=650,height=420");
    nW.location.href = "popEst.asp?rqFieldName=" + vField + "&rqFieldID=" + vFieldId + "&Param=" + vParam ;
    nW = null;


    in the popEst.asp page,

    im populating all the values from table, if i m click one value from the popup window value should appear in the input tag...

    response.write "<td><left><a href=""javascript:sendback('" & replace(EstName,"'","\'") & "', " & EstID & ")"">" & EstName & "</a></left></td>"

    function sendback(sWo,sWl,sW2,sW3,sW4)

    window.opener.document.all.<%=MainFormFldName%>.value = sWo;
    window.opener.document.all.<%=MainFormFldID%>.value = sWl;

    all the code working fine in PC, but not in Mac.. i found that in javascript, ASP variable is not recognize in Mac..

    window.opener.document.all.<%=MainFormFldName%>.value = sWo;

    in the above line MainFormFldName is showing "varaible undefined" error i m getting when i try to alert the <%=MainFormFldName%> like
    alert (<%=MainFormFldName%>);

    i dnk i wrote lot, but i want to clearly u my problem...

    expecting ur solution......

    Yeah don't use document.all because if I remember correctly this is only recognised by IE. Use document.getElementById(id) instead to grab your elements.
