Hi all

I need a idea for getting map data from other browser window.

my use case as below:
1: User click on the link which open the map in new tab or new window.
2: user will mark the point on the map.
3: I need to get that point and other details in the first tab or window.

API for getting data from the map is provided by the google MAP
But how to get the map object which is in the different window.


Please suggest how i can achive this

Thanks

When you open the new window, the JavaScript function to open the window should give you a reference to the window. Then you can use it to get access to the other window's DOM.
