I am wondering if you guys could tell me what to do to build up a connection between two browser tabs. It means there is tab no 1 with control buttons and another tab (no 2) with the result set presentation. Now I pressing the control buttons in tab 1 there should be a change in tab no 2 where another result is appearing. Is that possible?

You've been around the ranch long enough to know that we have a policy on screen names here at JavaRanch. Basically, it must consist of a first name, a space, and a last name, and not be obviously fictitious. Since yours does not conform with it, please take a moment to change it, which you can do right here.
As to your question, if one of the tabs is a child window of the other one, then they can communicate with one another (the window.open call returns a reference to the child window). But if they were opened independently of one another, no.

I feel sorry for breaking the name policy. I changed it immediately. I haven't looked into the policy, that was my fault.
