I have been searching for a while now on how to do this, and most say it can't be done.... There is always a way around that statement.

Once a window is open, using


Another window may not be allowed opened until that one is closed.

I've been attempting to send a var back to the parent when the child is closed using the onunload method, but with no luck. If I could just do that, then it could solve the problem.

But if anyone else has another idea, it's welcome.

And btw, developing in .Net and have a temporary fix working using an application var, but that has a security hole in it.

Thanks all,

Zath

Hi,

Welcome to JavaRanch!

Java and JavaScript are two utterly and completely different and unrelated languages. The similar names are the invention of a marketing team. Your question is about JavaScript. Most of this site is about Java, not JavaScript -- but we do have one forum entitled "HTML and JavaScript". I'll move your question there for you.
