In our web application we have a requirement to kick off a job & display progress in a modeless status page so user can continue to work while the status page will display progress / updates. We’ve implemented this by doing a window.open to launch the status page.

On job completion (or failure) we need the status to come to the front to alert the user about job completion and so he can look at the details. Is there a javascript function that does this. We tried using window.focus(), this highlights the window on the task bar but does not come up to the front if another window is active.
