I'm using this code to popup a window and place the values of the object and layer variables in the new window. this works, somewhat, but when I get the warning about active content and click to allow said active content, the values in the input fields dissapear

code:
function fSelectColor(object,layer) {
	picker=open("test.html","Crayola",'resizable=no,width=200,height=450');
	if (picker.opener == null) picker.opener = self;
	picker.document.getElementById("object").value=object;
	picker.document.getElementById("layer").value=layer;
}



why?

That's becaus the dynamic side reloads.
You'll need to place the setting of the elements in an onload that access the parent window to retreive the data.

code:
function getData(object,layer) {
    document.getElementById("object").value = object;
    document.getElementById("layer").value = layer;
}

<body onLoad = getData(opener.document.getElementById("object").value,opener.document.getElementById("layer").value);>



I can't really test this on the computer that I'm using right now because I'm not having the same problem I was at school, but does this seem like a step in the right direction?
