I am trying to open a new pop up for my application . And each popup has a window name . Suppose if the user closes the popup he can open the popup with same name .else the existing pop up should be displayed .

I wrote the below code to do that . But this is not opening a popup if the user closes it else its opening a new popup . Please suggest how can go with this .

please drop your suggestions

First thing I'd do is to reformat the code to be readable.
