    passing data to and fro between windows

    I'm not sure how to go about doing this.

    I would like to open a child window/popup and do some stuff in it and when finshed pass some some data back to the parent window.

    I read in a search here that I could do something like:

    opener.document.form_name.field_name.value="what ever"

    or

    opener.function_name()

    but what is opener? Is it an object or window name. i.e. what do I need to do to create "opener" and am I thinking on the right lines to do this.

    Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.
