    How to take value to new window

    Hi all

    I wonder if anyone can help, I'v have two files in one I have calendar and the other is opening as a new window(Appointments). I'm trying to take the clicked day/date value to this new window(Appointments) but I can not get my head round it. Can anyone help please. This is what I have so far.
    Code:
      saveAndClose : function(e) {
        Event.stop(e);
        var el=Event.element(e);
        var s=el.innerHTML.replace(/ /g,'');
        if (s=='' || el.className=='ricoCalWeekNum') return;
        var day=parseInt(s,10);
        if (isNaN(day)) return;
        var d=new Date(this.yearSelected,this.monthSelected,day);
        var dateStr=d.formatDate(this.dateFmt=='ISO8601' ? 'dd/mm/yyyy' : this.dateFmt);
        if (this.returnValue) this.returnValue(dateStr);
    	
    	/* writing appointment for the clicked date*/
    var win = window.open("appointments.jsp", "win", "width=500,height=200");
    var doc = win.document;
    doc.open("text/html", "replace");
    win.write("<html>You are about to write an appointment for</html><br>",(dateStr));
    	doc.close();
    This does work to an extend it takes the clicked value (dateStr) to a new window but it DOES NOT open the(appointments.jsp) as new window. How can I do this, open Appointments.jsp as new window with dateStr as value.
    Many thanks

    Basically this:
    Code:
    doc.getElementById('anID').innerHTML = dateStr;
    Other ways are possible, but that would depend on the appointments.jsp document.

    It would depend on the type of element the calendar ID is.

    I'm trying something like this;
    Code:
    /* writing appointment for the clicked date*/
    	var win = window.open("appointments.jsp", "win", "width=500,height=200"); // a window object
    	var doc = win.document;
    	doc.getElementById('CalendarValue2').innerHTML = dateStr;
    	doc.open("text/html", "replace");
    	doc.write("<html>You are about to write an appointment for</html><br>",(dateStr));
    	doc.close();
    It doesn't want to know. this is where took the calendar from

    Thanks agian Fang for your reply, am I right to think that I need to put some sort of function in 'appointments.jsp' file in order for it to display the clicked value from the calender.

    No real need, but it works more consistently if dateStr is picked-up from the child window onload.
