I would be grateful for any ideas with this one.

Can I assign a name to a window after it's opened.

I want to be able to move back and forth between two.

My first window opens a second called "secondwindow"

Moving between the two as "opener" and "secondwindow" is no problem unless some shuts the "opener" window.

I'd like to them be able to "reopen" the origonal window and carry on.

I think you can change the window name even if the page is already loaded:

Code: Select all

<script language="JavaScript">
//just loaded we assign a name to the window
this.window.name="my_window";
alert(window.name);
//function that changes the name on run time
function my_change(){
   this.window.name='my_window2';
   alert(window.name);
}
//check if
function my_change2(){
   alert(window.name);
}
</script>

</HEAD>
<BODY>
<a href="#" onclick="my_change()">change the window name</a><br>
<a href="#" onclick="my_change2()">check the window name</a>
</BODY>

bye!
