How do i refer to the very first parent window?

The visual revised...

Main Parent Window <--
| ^
| |
Child Popup A |- Refresh from Child Popup A1

Child Popup A1 ----> ^

Is the visual or text description confusing?

Can someone answer yes or not at least. That way I can give up on my
end and pursue somthing different. Smart asses need not answer ;)

Thanks.

What you still fail to understand is that this is not a (paid) Web
support forum, but a text-only Usenet discussion group you are using
Google Groups to interface with ...
Smart asses need not answer ;)
.... which is why (especially competent) people subscribing to the newsgroup
dislike *demanding* postings like yours and they really dislike postings
composed of
[top post]


as described in the FAQ which also provides the answer to your
question as Google Groups search itself does. (Search for "opener".)
