I open a child window (pop up) through a button from my parent window.
Now i dont want to have acess to the Parent window until my child winodw is closed.ie i should not be able to work on the parent window.
Do you know any way in javascript in which we can achive this.
Its like this when we get an error message we arre not allowed to go the
parent window ....

i have a search form on the click of the button it will open an pop up
window which will perform the search now this window should be active alway
until and unless this is close it , only reason for which is the search form
is dynamic and it should not have the control over the parent window until &
unless the child winodw is close.
