Top Window

Hello Group,

Is there anyway for me to use Javascript to make sure a window in on top all
of the time. This is not for pop-up ads, I have written a pop datepicker,
but when I click outside of the new window the calander is lost ??

any ideas ?

Kind Regards

For a popup date picker, you could try using the "ShowModalDialo g" function
instead of the "open" function. The modal dialog will stay on top until the
user closes it (or you close it by capturing an event and closing the dialog
through the "close" function. The only draw back is that this window will
not allow focus to go to any other window in that IE instance until it is
closed. You can also return the value of the date picked easily by using
the ShowModalDialog function without having to use the "opener" handle.

I have a page that opens a popup window and within the window, some databse info is submitted and the window closes. It then refreshes the original window using window.opener.location.reload(). The problem is that after the reload, it brings you right to the top of the page. When I click 'refresh" on the original page, it brings me back to the original viewing position. Is there a way to duplicate this in from the popup window. Also,...

Hello, I am trying to open a window containing an image and I would like the image to be flush against the window -- i.e. have no padding or border. Can I make this happen with a single call to a window.open function? I would prefer not to create a separate HTML page. So far all I have is the basic var cwin = window.open('images/KJV-THANKS.gif', 'Thanks', 'width=243,height=420,'); cwin.focus();

While reading c.l.j, I've noticed that some people prefer and indeed even recommend the use of "window.alert()" over "alert()". I can't find any technical reason to make this distinction, and seems to have a (tiny) amount overhead since window itself points to the global object, hence, a circular reference. (From everything I am reading, window is just a REFERENCE back to the global object, as opposed to a separate object.)
