i have a simple url -

<a href="javascript:displayWindow('Slice 2100 (Commercial)');">SLICE 2100 (Commercial)</a>

that passes the the variable in a javascript function -

<script language="javascript">
		    function displayWindow(url)
		        var w, h, l, t;
				var nc;
		        w = 600;
		        h = 409;
		        l = screen.width/4;
		        t = screen.height/4;
				nc = url;
				document.forms['SellSheet'].elements['sellitsheet'].value = nc;				
                // no title		        
		        // displayFloatingDiv('windowcontent', '', w, h, l, t);

                // with title		        
		        displayFloatingDiv('windowcontent', 'Floating and Dimming Div', w, h, l, t);				

the function then prints our the variable in a text field but it doesn't show in firefox -

my text field

<input type="text" style="width: 292px" class="myTextBox" id="sellitsheet" />

any ideas?

Hope this would help you!

Instead of this one --> document.forms ['SellSheet'].elements['sellitsheet'].value = nc; Try doing it like this --> document.SellSheet.sellitsheet.value = nc;

thanks for the quick reply - but that doesn't work either. in fact, i originally had that string and changed it b/c i saw some post on the net saying firefox couldn't understand that type of syntax.

any other ideas?


still nothing - it's weird b/c i'll put a document.write in the function and it reads the passed variable but nothing i do gets the text field to populate in firefox or safari.

never mind - got it to work - i had to put the

document.getElementsByTagName('form')['SellSheet'].elements['sellitsheet'].value = url;

lind AFTER the call to my display function!

This should do it!
