I'm trying to pop up a window from a navigation window.  When the user minimize it and click on another link from the navigation window the content window should focus and display the right page. When the user close the content window and click on another link in the navigation window it should reopen the content window.

The code below works fine with Netscape 4.6 but I have problems with Iexplore 4.  I have "Access is denied" and "RPC server is unavailable" errors.


<html>
<head>
<title></title>
<script language="JavaScript">
<!-- //
        var NaviWin=null;

        function openNavi(theURL)
        {      
                if((NaviWin==null)||(NaviWin.closed))
                {
                        NaviWin=window.open(theURL,'popupwin',"toolbar=yes,location=yes,status=yes,menubar=yes,scrollbars=yes,resizable=yes,width=800,height=600");
   
                }                
                else
                {      
                        NaviWin.focus();
                        NaviWin.location=theURL;
                }
        }
//-->

</script>

</head>
<body>
<a href="http://www.test.com/office" onClick="openNavi('http://www.test.com/office'); return false;">Link 1</a><br>
<a href="http://www.test.com/sitemap" onClick="openNavi('http://www.test.com/sitemap'); return false;">Link 2</a>
</body>

That should work...  but I know you can shorten your open statement to this:
NaviWin=window.open(theURL,'popupwin',"toolbar,location,status,menubar,scrollbars,resizable,width=800,height=600");
The yes is the default, no need to specify it.

cybernietic,

Just looking at the code from the off.. is the script also hosted at www.test.com ?? ( whatever your URL is...)

If not, then this is the cause of the Access Denied errors. Scripts at one host cannot read or write properties of windows hosting a document from another host.

A solution to this would be to close NaviWin, and re-open it with the new URL.

try replacing:

NaviWin.location = theURL;

with

NaviWin.location.replace( theURL );
