I have to call a sharepoint list form and pass its data to the current page. I created a modal and function to collect the data with the below code

function openDialogAndReceiveData() {
        var options = {
            url: 'https://domain.sharepoint.com/sites/ProjectSites/test/Lists/Additional%20Information/NewForm.aspx',
            title: 'test',
            dialogReturnValueCallback: onPopUpCloseCallBackWithData

    function onPopUpCloseCallBackWithData(result, returnValue) {
        if (result == SP.UI.DialogResult.OK) {
            var sId = SP.UI.Status.addStatus("Data successfully populated to text boxes from Pop-up");
            SP.UI.Status.setStatusPriColor(sId, 'green');
        else if (result == SP.UI.DialogResult.cancel) {
            var sId = SP.UI.Status.addStatus("You have cancelled the Operation !!!");
            SP.UI.Status.setStatusPriColor(sId, 'yellow');

on the form i have added the below

 <input id="btnClientOk2" type="button" value="Client Side OK and pass Value to Base Page" onclick="closePopupAndPassData()" />
<script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-latest.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">

     function closePopupAndPassData() {
         var popData = [];
         popData[0] =$("input[title='Title']").val();
         popData[1] = "test2";
         SP.UI.ModalDialog.commonModalDialogClose(SP.UI.DialogResult.OK, popData);

Add below script in PopUp Page and call it on submit click:

  function closePopupAndPassData() {
     var popData = [];
     popData[0] = document.getElementById('<%= txtPopData1.ClientID %>').value;
     popData[1] = document.getElementById('<%= txtPopData2.ClientID %>').value;
     SP.UI.ModalDialog.commonModalDialogClose(SP.UI.DialogResult.OK, popData);

This will close the popup and call your onPopUpCloseCallBackWithData method.
