i'm pretty good with JS and PHP. i want to beable to access my PHP/MySQL data with out the browser reloading a page. my idea was to have a link that will pop a small window which will access the php and mysql data and then pass that back to the window which it was poped from.

but i haven't got a clue how to pass data between to web browser windows. i sure it can be done. i think ive seen a script at does it for something else.

Use ajax to communicate with the server without a page refresh. Refer to [a href=\"http://www.ajaxfreaks.com\" target=\"_blank\"]http://www.ajaxfreaks.com[/a] for some tutorials. I think that is the best way to do what you are wanting.

However, if you want to communicate with an opened window:

[code]var win = window.open(url);[/code]

Then, manipulate the dom and variables just like you would in the current window, just put win in front...

[code]win.getElementById('mydiv').style.display = "none";[/code]

and so on.

From the opened window, you can control the opening window using window.opener in the same manner.

Do a google search and you will find a wealth of info. [a href=\"http://www.w3schools.com\" target=\"_blank\"]http://www.w3schools.com[/a] has quite a bit as well.
