cross-frame submit works, but not reset

Hi all,

I've got two frames, one with a form ('main') and one with some clickable
images ('tp'). The clickable images call a function in 'main' (code below)
which in turn calls the .submit() or .reset() methods of the form.

The submit call does what is expected. But the reset call throws an error in
Mozilla (1.2.1) 'widget.reset is not a function'. It doesn't work in
Konqueror (3.1.1) either (don't have an error message - it just don't
work). Clicking on a reset button within the form has the expected result.

Am I doing something stoopid?

TIA,

Colin
function tp_action(targe tform,action,pa ram)
{
switch(action) {
case '':
break;
case 'submit':
widget=document .getElementById (targetform);
if (widget.onsubmi t()) {
widget.submit() ; // this works !!!
}
break;
case 'reset':
widget=document .getElementById (targetform);
widget.reset(); // this doesn't !!!!!
// document.forms[targetform].reset(); // nor does this !!
// document.myform .reset(); // nor does this (myform is name/id of form)

break;
default:
alert('unknown action request ' + action);
break;
}
}

<form name='myform' id='myform' enctype='multip art/form-data' method='POST'
onsubmit='retur n(true);'>

This script, in which frame is it called?

document.getEle mentByID will only return elements in the current frame.

Maybe you need to do something like:
parent.otherfra me.document.get ElementById(tar getform);

But then again if that is the case then its weird that it works at all

You can also call the function from another frame so,

onClick='parent .otherframe.tp_ action(...)';

good luck,
Vincent

Hi, Doing a bit of system testing on a Windows 98 laptop. (.Net 1.1 app). Did a bit of testing. Loaded a previously saved file. A gray box appeared with the text and buttons all white rectangles with a big red cross in it. Pressed a button (the one I thought might be ok). My file appeared to load. Then when I clicked on any button on my form, the button was replaced with a white rectangle with a big red cross in it.

Here's what I want do: Have a main daemon which starts up several threads in a Boss-Queue structure. From those threads, I want them all to sit and watch a queue. Once an entry goes into the queue, grab it and run a system command. Now I want to make sure that system command doesn't hang forever, so I need some way to kill the command and have the worker thread go back to work waiting for another queue entry.
