Passing variable from HREF to form field on another page

21 New Member
Hi gang!

I've been searching for a solution to this problem extensively but nothing really hits the mark.

I have a descriptive popup page that contains a PayPal order button. The normal PayPal form fields allow for the item description, fee, etc. I'd like the fee field to be variable based upon which hyperlink launched the popup.

HREF click sets a variable
INPUT TYPE (hidden) named "amount" equals the variable

Specifically, the page that has been launching the popup is a standard order page. I'm adding a discounted "sale" page which would lead to the same popup description, but since the PayPal code is absolute, the user would end up paying the standard price if the click the popup's button.

I'm trying to avoid creating separate popup pages because there's already one for foreign and one for domestic, then two of each of those for each issue.

Here's the relevant code:

<A HREF="javascrip t:newWindow1('i ssue01dp.html') ">Issue 1</A>

newWindow1 is defined in an external popup function.

<input type="hidden" name="amount" value="9.50">

So, for example, one hyperlink would make the "amount" equal 9.50, and another hyperlink would make the resulting "amount" equal 8.50.

I'm thinking that if I could embed a number in onClick=, then call it within the form field, that'd do the trick. But I'm stuck trying to find a simple way to define the variable within this one line.

Here is what you can try.

In the first page you can have the below onClick function in the anchor tag
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. onClick="window.open('popUpPage.html'+'?'+escape(1.5),'_blank')"
1.5 is the value you are passing to the popup page.
In the pop up page you should have a onLoad function which includes this code
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. var val = unescape(location.search.substring(1, location.search.length));
now val is going to have 1.5 and you can use this in your popup.

Is hope this is what you are looking for
