    how to access my opened window once i browse away?

    Say I have two files myindex.php and windowLand.js...

    myindex.php looks like this:

    Code:
    inside myindex.php
    
    <script src="windowLand.js"></script>
    
    <html>
    <body>
    content...
    </body>
    </html>
    
    
    then windowLand.js looks like this:
    
    <script>
    content = "<html><body>.....</html>";
    newWindow = window.open('pizza.html', 'my_cool_window', ....etc);
    newWindow.document.write(content);
    </script>
    So I create a new window inside myindex.php. my_cool_window gets opened. windowLand.js contains the opener for the new window.

    Now I browse away from myindex.php...my new window is still opened but I've lost the opener to the window...how do I gain access to the new window again????

    This will give you a handle to the window without changing the URL:
    Code:
    newWindow = window.open("","my_cool_window");

    Write this into the new window's markup:
    Code:
    <script type='text/javascript'>
    
    setInterval( function(){try{ opener.newWindow=self; }catch(e){} }, 500);
    
    <\/script>
    Where used, return should be executed unconditionally and always as the last statement in the function.

    That's my signature, it's not part of the damn post!
