Windows And Focus

Jul 23, 2005

Neglecting the annoyance factor for a moment, is it possible to keep one browser window at the screen forefront (in front of all other browser windows) but still be able to interact with a window directly beneath it? How would this be pulled off in JS?

Child Windows Can Not Access Window.opener When Multiple Child Windows Are Open

Jul 23, 2005

I have a parent window that pushes a new window object onto an Array
with the following code :


//totalNumWindowsCreated is global

totalNumWindowsCreated = totalNumWindowsCreated + 1;
childWnds.push(, "child" +


This pops up a new window with every call. In the child window I call
a parent function onbeforeunload, appClose() :

function appClose(){

if (window.opener && !window.opener.closed){

This is in my frameset tag of the child code :

<frameset ... onbeforeUnload='appClose()'>

The window.opener.CloseChild() function is called perfectly when I have
one child window open, but as soon as I create another child window
both of the open child windows don't ever call it. They do both go
into the onbeforeunload appClose() function, but do not call the
window.opener.CloseChild() function inside of this routine.

Anyone have any ideas why when I have two child windows open I can't
access the window.opener functions?

I have tried taking each new window out of the array and used the
following code in CloseChild() :


//win and totalNumWindowsCreated are both global

totalNumWindowsCreated = totalNumWindowsCreated + 1;
var win =, "child" +

Focus On Field - IPad Browser Blocking The Focus

Aug 18, 2010

I'm currently making a web application which needs to be fully compatible with iPad. The functions I've implemented so far work perfectly on Firefox, Internet Explorer and other browsers. However, the iPad itself responds a bit different. After a certain action, I want to put focus on a textfield with the help of Javascript. Again, this works perfectly with the normal browser, the iPad browser however seems to be blocking the focus. The reason I'm not posting any code is because it's basically irrelevant. All I do is:

Set The Focus On A Form Field Without Using Focus()?

Is there a way to set the focus on a form field without using focus()? I use ajax to build the form and if I try to set the focus using focus() an error is generate because of the form hasn't been built by ajax. So, it would be nice if I could set the focus() as I built the form.

Manual Focus Vs. Focus()

May 20, 2007

I'm attaching an onfocus event handler to an anchor tag like this:

if(window.attachEvent) anchor_node.attachEvent('onfocus', gotFocus);
if(window.addEventListener) anchor_node.addEventListener('focus',
gotFocus, false);

function gotFocus() {
alert('i got focus');

Is there any way to tell the difference between when this anchor is
focused by a user (perhaps by tabbing to it) as opposed to when I
programatically do it via anchor_node.focus()?

Resizable Pop Up Windows In IE

Oct 20, 2006

I have a web application where we pop up a little calendar control in a
new window to allow users to choose dates. For cross-browser purposes,
this is done via (with some code to make it behave like a
modal dialog) and I set the width and height of the window such that
the controls fit nicely and it all looks good.

I have some users who are unable to see the OK and Cancel buttons at
the bottom of the window due to some display settings on their
machines. OK, I though, I'll just make the window resizable and they
can then take control. How naive of me! Why on earth does IE decide
that the minute I put 'resizable=yes' into my attributes for the new
window that it should ignore the size?

I know I can do window.resizeTo in the onload of the calendar window,
but I'm not keen on the resizing of the window.

I don't suppose anyone knows of a way to have IE open a resizable
window of a given size without the resizeTo?

Windows IDE For Script?

Mar 23, 2009

I have recently installed Firebug, hoping to use it as an IDE for Javascript in Windows.

But I'm obviously missing something very basic since, although I can display HTML files containing Javascript scripts, can set breakpoints and can step through the coding a line at a time, I find I cannot edit any of my Javascript code within Firebug.

So (a) how is this done, precisely, if it is possible, or (b) can you recommend an alternative FreeWare IDE for Javascript in Windows?

Pop-up Windows Being Blocked

Oct 17, 2005

I'm trying to use in some buttons on a website I'm building. The windows open in all browsers that I've tested except IE (PC and Mac). I'm assuming this is a pop-up blocker issue even though what I've read says that if the user initiates the pop-up, then it will work even with the blockers enabled.

Does anyone know how to fix this without using target=_blank?

The site is The code for the pop-up windows is below:

Two Windows Interacting

Sep 19, 2006

I have two windows, one, the 'main' window which contains a blog entry, and a 'child' window that contains item in an ordered list. Each item A-Z has a corresponding word a-z in the main window. Whever the user puts his mouse over, or clicks on a-z in the main window, I'd like the corresponding item in the child window to be brought to the top and highlighted.

I haven't had much luck looking around for answer because I'm not sure what I should be looking for. Even just some search terms would be helpful (though I prefer a nice solution!).
