Permission denied when accessing function in parent window

My child window has this script. "temp" is simply the value of the
select list which I am passing onchange. I get a permission denied
error in IE when executing selectOption.

function selectOption(te mp){
if(temp == ''){
alert('You have not made a selection. Please make a selection
to continue.');
return false;
opener.setValue s(temp);

I launched the window with the following script from the main window:

function newWindow(myurl ,mywidth,myheig ht,resize) {
var myDate=new Date();
var myTime=myDate.g etTime();
var URL=(myurl.inde xOf('?') > -1)?myurl + '&time=' + myTime:myurl +
'?time=' + myTime;
var w=mywidth;
var h=myheight;
var winname='popWin dow';
var winl = (screen.width - w) / 2, wint = (screen.height - h) / 2;
winresize=(resi ze=='resize')?' scrollbars=yes, resizable=yes': 'scrollbars=no, resizable=no';
var winprops = 'height='+h+',w idth='+w+',top= '+wint+',left=' +winl +
',toolbar=no,st atus=no,menubar =no,' + resize;
if(win==null || win.closed)//only launch window if it doesn't already
win=window.open (URL, winname, winprops);
document.onclic k=winfocus;//set method to bring window into focus

Last time I had a similiar issue was when the opener and popup scripts
were on different domain (even subdomain).
It could be that, or something else.. Just out of curiosity, what does
setValues function do on the opener script??

Mar 7 '06 #2
It is all the same domain...even the same application...w hich is why it
driving me crazy. Set values simply splits the value passed back and
assigns it to some form fields.

Found the issue, there was a linked JavaScript file in the main page
which was setting document.domain ='SOMETHING'; If I added that to the
popup too, all is well.

Morning All, I have some code for a website which uses 'window.open' to simulate modal dialog boxes. I use the window.closed property to decide if the window object exists at various points. This has been fine until last week when I started getting javascript 'Permission Denied' errors when I try to access this property. I suspect that a windows update has caused this somehow, as this code has not changed for a very long time. Can...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...
