to focus main window

hi friends,
i solved my backbutton and history problem by opening the new window without having any toolbars. We are opening new window if user logged correctly.
If user enters the correct username and password ,new window will opens .we check this by getting the location of the path. we get one location if he enters correct username and pasword.in script if that is the path,then we will open in new window.
if username and pasword is not correct , so by checking the window.location,we will not open new window.
Here my problem is, when we logins correctly, new window is opening. but focus is going to parent window only.that is child window is minimized
is there any method or function or property to set the focus = true or highlights the child window.
so please tell me how i can overcome this problem

Thanks in advance

Hope you love dealing with cutomers and pop up blockers, plus there are settings that cause pop up blockers to hold onto toolbars.

but to answer your question:

window.focus() is what you need to add in the child window.
