you need to open the windows in an array or something

popup[0] = window.open(yad da);
popup[1] = window.open(yad da);
popup[2] = window.open(yad da);
popup[3] = window.open(yad da);

then you can do something like

for (i=0; i<=popup.length ; i++) {

hi all,

i am having a parent window,
for that many child windows are being opened.
i am having a reference for all the windows which are being opened in javascript as a array variable
[so i am free to close all the windows that are refrenced when needed]

, here for a functionality in my application , i am refershing the page for every 500 secs.

so here the windows opened before 500 secs losts there references in the javascript, so i have no handle to close those windows.
question no 1: is there any way close those orphan windows?

question no 2: is there any way to search for the internet explorer windows which are open and look for the specific parameter in that window and then closing the window[which are orphan]?

please help!!!

I've merged this with an older thread.

Are you sure you need to refresh the whole page? Can you not refresh a part of the page instead to avoid losing references to the child windows?

Thanks acoder for merging, and Yes i need to refresh the whole page, because i am extending the application and not creating a new, my change should not affect others flow

is there any other way of doing this[with out having a seperate frame/iframe]

Thanks once again,

Once you refresh the window, I think the references to the child windows will be lost. What exactly requires the page to refreshed every half second? Perhaps there is an alternative you haven't thought of.

>From the main page, there are lots of links to open new window. i.e. <a href="#" onClick="window.open('child1.html')">Open Child Window</a> If I close the main page, I want to close all child windows also. That means I need to keep track all handles of the child windows whenever I open a new window. Correct? any suggestions on the approach? Please advise. thanks!!

I think this is a simple question. But I am new to JS. Here is what I want to do: From a parent window, open a popup window (child) to get data from user, then user submit the request, close the child window, an ASP page is generated from server and displayed with data in parent window, rather than child window. Right now, I can display in child window. But do not know how to display in parent. TIA

I have an MDI application that starts an instance of a child form at application start. I have an event handler on a combo box checking for the selected value to change. When the select value changes, I call a method on the parent form to change some menu options, and then I need to close the child form. My code looks something like this: private void ddlDatabase_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, System.EventArgs e) {...

Hi this is related to a previous post, hopefully just a bit clearer description o the problem. I have a parent form that opens a new form (child form) while still leaving the parent form open. Although the child form has a close button (with java script) if the user navigates the parent form to another form the child form is still open. Just wondering if there is a way to close the child form when the user navigates away with the parent...
