I'm using master page in the parent page.

When I'm opening the child page and use the below code

window.opener.document.forms(0).abcd.value is null or not an object

string strScript = "<script>window.opener.document.forms(0).abcd.value" + " = '" + textbox1.text + "';";
strScript += "self.close()";
strScript += "</" + "script>";
RegisterClientScriptBlock("abcd", strScript);

I have also used the
1. window.document.getElementById('abcd').value
2. window.opener.document.forms[0].abcd.value
3. window.opener.document.forms['form1'].elements['abcd'].value
4. window.opener.document.forms[0].elements['abcd'].value
5. self.opener.document.abcd.value

instead of


but neither of them worked for me

Please help me on this

Thanks in advance.

What versions of IE and Netscape would not support it?

Use 'Add Comment' link below an answer to discuss anything with the answerer. It notifies the user.
On the other hand adding an answer doesn't notify him and he may never know that you asked him something.

Dear Friend
Instead of using document.forms(0).abcd.value
<pre lang="midl">document.getElementById('myText').value;</pre><br />
as it will give you more precise result

you can also assign the value returned by the function to a variable and perform operation on it
var DivValue=document.getElementById('DivValue');
