Frame - window.open() in Netscape

W.
Hi all ...
I have a page with 4 frames in it.
If I click on a button in the 4th frame, a new window has to be opened
and the value of the listbox in the 3rd frame hoas to be passed ....
My code works fine in IE, but doesn't in Netscape .....

First, the value of the listbox .... I try to get it with
parent.frame3.f orm.listbox.val ue ... But an alert of this (as a test)
does nothing .... I tried several combinations like parent.frames[2]
and parent.frames[frame3] but nothing happens ...

Another problem is that the frame4 is blanked ... strangely enough ...
I'm just doing window.open('bl ablabla');

any ideas ??

thanks
Wim

The FAQ for this newsgroup describes the correct way to get the
currently selected value of a Select ("listbox") ohject:

<http://www.jibbering.c om/faq/#FAQ4_13>

What do you mean by "doing" window.open() ?
Is it in the HREF attribute of a link?
Is it in the onClick event handler of a button?
Give more detail.

The window.open thing, I think I figured that out .... It's an onClick
on a button, which does a submit of a form ... the submit has to be
dropped .... The strange thing is that it works fine in IE ...
I'll check out the link you've send me !!
Thanks for your time !!
