Need to implement below Function in Main Command. Question : How i fetch the popup JS event listener value in my main Command ???????

execute: function (selection) {

  $evt.addEventHandler(p.popup, "submit", function (event)
                   try {
                               var fieldBuilder;
                               var tabs = $display.getView().properties.controls.TabControl;
                               var cardCount, card;
                               cardCount = tabs.properties.cards.length;
                               //  console.log($display.getView().properties.controls.TabControl);
                               while (cardCount--) {
                                   card = tabs.properties.cards[cardCount];
                                   if (card.getId() === "MetadataTab") {
                                       fieldBuilder = card.properties.controls.fieldBuilder;

                               if (fieldBuilder.getField("topic")) {

                                   ///Code For topic
                                   var set = fieldBuilder.getField("topic");

                                   var x = "someText";

                               if (fieldBuilder.getField("subTopic")) {
                                   var set = fieldBuilder.getField("subTopic");

                                   var x = "sometext";



                           catch (e) {
                               console.log("Found Error" + e);
                          // p.popup.close();

I have implemented Selected DDl Value code in popUp Js as below

    controls.btnSelect.addEventListener("click", function () {

        var skillsSelect = document.getElementById("ddlTopic");
        var selectedText = skillsSelect.options[skillsSelect.selectedIndex].text;

        target.fireEvent("submit", { content: selectedText });

need below content in Main command.js "Submit" handler Event. target.fireEvent("submit", { content: selectedText });

Thanks in Advanced!!!!!!

Here is the Code which i used to fetch the Submit Event of popupPage.js in Command.js

In popupPage.js we need to declare ._excecute Command as below

Alchemy4Tridion.Plugins.Topic.Views.Popup.prototype._execute = function (event) {

//logic of dropdown control

var Result =//logic Result;

target.fireEvent("submit", { content: Result });


Now fetch the Event and Result in Command.js.

execute: function (target) {

 $evt.addEventHandler(p.popup, "submit", function (event) {

//you will get your Result in event.data.content

var val = event.data.content;


Happy Coding.....
