From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.4+) Gecko/20011003 BuildID: 2001100321 (And others) I don't know if this is a Bug or a security measure. If you try to access window.opener.NameOfForm.Element.value from a child window results in a window.opener.NameOfForm has no properties. Explorer allows accesing the values. A simple workarround is to have a funtion in the opener window to access the form elements and call this function from the child window, but I want to know if this is a bug or only a security feature. :) Reproducible: Always
Over to security. This is a security feature, but it may be buggy.... :)
Shouldn't that be window.opener.document.NameOfForm.Element.value ...? I thought that form objects are properties of the document, not the window. Using document works fine for me. Will attach testcase.
Jason is correct, forms are properties of the Document object.
Verified on 2001-10-31-Trunk build on WinNT The above test case loads fine.
