What do I have to change to get this to work?

This works:

Main window:
<html>
<head>
<title>Untitl ed Document</title>
<script>
function openSub(){
window.open("Pr intwindow.htm", "pw","height=20 0px, width=300px, left=300px,
top=300px")
}
</script>
</head>

<body>
<form id='form1' name="form1">
<input type="text" name="textfield ">
<input type="button" name="Test" value="Test" onClick="openSu b();">
</form>
</body>
</html>

Sub window:
<html>
<head>
<title>Untitl ed Document</title>
<script type="text/javascript">
function sendMe(txt){
opener.form1.te xtfield.value=t xt;
}
</script>
</head>

<body>
<form name="frm">
<input name="btn1" type="button" onClick="sendMe ('test');" value="Test">
</form>
</body>
</html>

but if I change the window.open to window.showModa lDialog it doesn't work
any more. How do I send stuff back to the calling window if the callee has
been opened as a modaldialog window?

Thanks

By closing your ModalDialog. ;-)
var userChoice = window.showModa lDialog(args);

Why do you think it's called "modal" and "dialog"? It is just
Microsoft's proprietary (though useful) way to display rich formatted
dialog windows. But by its nature and execution mechanics it's the same
as:
var userChoice = window.confirm( 'OK or Cancel?');

It is much the same here.

In fact, it is rather surprising it already worked without that. For
window.open(), features in the third argument for window.open() are to
be comma-separated, not comma-space-separated.

And the syntax is different for IE-only window.showModa lDialog(): the
features have to be separated by semi-colon there:

Actually check for showModelessDia log instead and
dlgObject.dialo gArguments property
<http://msdn.microsoft. com/workshop/author/dhtml/reference/methods/showmodelessdia log.asp>

If you have more questions of their usage I guess they are better
suited for microsoft.publi c.scripting.jsc ript as not too many people
here ever used them actively (?)

The problem is that unfortunately closing it is not an option. The window is
generated by a program that opens a modal window and uses it to show a print
preview. If it is a big report, it can take long to display the first page
and I therefore want to send information back to the opener so it can
display some sort of progress status info while the report is being
generated. The good thing is that I have access to part of the code and
therefore could add code to send stuff back, but part of the code is an
active x and isn't mine. It is in that part the window is opened - hence I
cannot change the way it is done.

It is nonsense to block the UA this long. So do not use a modal dialog
here, and modify the code so that it does not open one in the first place.
