OK I have been doing my best to hack together a solution for this but, each one I come up with never quite works the way I want it to. So maybe you can help?

What I need is a JavaScript that will allow me to bring a second window spawned by the first to the Focus <front> state.

Example page one has a list of hyperlinks to images. When the user clicks a link in window one a new browser window is spawned and the image is displayed in that window.

No problem right? Well of coarse the first time you clisk the "popup" window displaying the image is in the front but then when you click on anouther link in window one, window two goes to the onBlur state.
Now of coarse if you click a link in window one it appears in window two as it should but window two is hidden behind window one in a blured state.

So creating window two is not a problem just getting it to come too the front when I click anouther link is?

some params:
1/I only want two windows
2/must work in IE and NS
3/ Like it to work in IE3 and NS3
which of coarse means that onFoucus/onBlur are out.

Now as far making the IE side of this work it does not have to be JavaScript. If you know some "pc talk" that will make it do the same thing by all means please share.

I look forward to your replies,

thanxs david
