hello guys i am facing a problem in accessing form elements and returing them.. can u please help me.. ?

Here the problem goes:

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">

function pop() {
              newwindow2=window.open('','name','height=500,width=500');
    var tmp = newwindow2.document;
    tmp.write('<html><head><title>popup</title>');
    tmp.write('<body><form action ="hello.html" value="somthing" method="post">');
tmp.write('<b>Date</b>')
tmp.write('<input type="text" name="date"><br>');
tmp.write('<b>Event Title</b>')
tmp.write('<input type="text" name="title"><br>');
var title = document.getElementById('title')
tmp.write('<b>Event Desc</b>');
tmp.write('<input type="text" name="event1"><br>');
tmp.write('<b>start time</b>');
tmp.write('<input type="text" name="start"><br>');
tmp.write('<b> end time </b>');
tmp.write('<input type="text" name="end"><br>');
tmp.write('<input type="submit" name="ADD" onclick="javascript:self.close()"><br>');
tmp.write('<input type="reset" name="CLEAR">');
//name = oForm.elements["title"].value;
tmp.write('</form>') 
tmp.write('</body></html>');
tmp.close();

}

</script>

Did you copy and paste the above code onto a BLANK document and saved it as test.html?
It worked for me in Chrome and FF. Hence my comment, "This is a far as I go"

Be sure to test it by opening it directly from the browser, not through the preview option of your editor. If it still does not work, then would expect you to be getting some error message. Are you? What browser are you using?
