Sending messages between child and parent widows with react


This Content is from Stack Overflow. Question asked by Ofer Gal

I have in the parent window the following code:

<form action='' name={'commForm'} >
 <input type='text' id='windowToClose' onChange={windowToCloseChanged} value={jobToClose} />

I also tried onChange={(e)=> windowToCloseChanged(e)}
and the method :

 const windowToCloseChanged = (e): void => { 

in the child window I have the code:

opener.document.commForm.windowToClose.value = 'W' + dpcRequest.ProjJob;

When the child code runs, I can see the input field populate with the text but the on change method never gets executed.
What am I missing for the “windowToCloseChanged” to run?
Thank you
