how to access document from a pop up

P: n/a
I want to set the main document variables from a pop-up.

The code will be somewhat like this (sorry for mistakes) but it isn't
setting the main document's input box value. Please help!

<script language="javascript">
function mypopup() {
var message="<input type=text name=s1 value=yes
onclick=\"document.forms[0].myinput.value='value from popup'\">";
<form method=post action="myaction.html">
<input type=text name=myinput value='default value' onclick="popup()">

(1) in your pop-up:
self.opener.myFunction(var1, var2, var3);

(2) in the main window:
myFunction(v1, v2, v3) {
myVar1 = v1;
myVar2 = v2;
myVar3 = v3;

any functions or variables or else on it from the child window.
