check whether a page is loaded

Hi,
I need to open a new window(having same url as parent window)from parent window. Can we somehow check whether a new is completely loaded in the javascript so that I can do some manupulations on new window?

function fnFloat(){
/* getting the url of current(parent window */
url=self.location;
alert("before rewriting:"+url);
/* rewriting the url pass one variable through url*/
url=url+"&float=1";
alert("after rewriting:"+url);
/* opening new window with the same url(with variable float)*/
myWin = window.open(''+url,'myWin','left=20,top=20,width=800,height=500,toolbar=1,resizable=1,scrollbars=1,location=1');

/* want to do some manupulation here with 'myWin' object.... such as
myWin.document.getElementById("float"); which is not working...I am getting null value as the new window is not loaded*/
}

Can anyone suggest some solution for this??

Thanks in advance,
Regards,
Karishma

You can not call the window to read its content until after the window has fully loaded.

You can go the other way ...

Now it's up to script in the new window to call parent.acceptDataFromChild() when it's fully loaded. Does that make sense?


A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
