stay on top window

Ok I am very stuck on this problem.

I have a main page with 2 buttons, pressing a button launches a little popup window
the popup window has content in accordance with the variable passed to it in the url querystring.
1 or 2

The first time I load the main page and click on button1, the Popup window
is created and displays fine.
Then I click on button2 , doing so the Popup window looses focus as the main window
is brought to the front. I alt tab to the Popup window ,and the contents of which
are fine (number 2 content).

The problem is I don't want to have to alt tab to the popup window, is there a way to
make the popup stay on top???

If no one can give me a solution for this then I will delete this question, I have
already spent points searching experts-exchange for an answer, and turned up nothing
of and substance. infact the general concensus is it cannot be done ..

lala lala lala rubbish!

It can be done the question is how?


here is a previous answer that does not work for example:
//   if (document.all) WinHandle = window.showModalDialog("DayView.asp?PersonID="+P+"&TheDate="+D+"&AMPMCode="+C,'arguments','dialogWidth=360,dialogHeight=290')
//   else WinHandle = window.open("DayView.asp?PersonID="+P+"&TheDate="+D+"&AMPMCode="+C,"DetailView",["resizable=0,width=360,height=290,alwaysRaised"]);

and the idea of onbluring setfocusing aslo does not work.


Here is a snippet of my code:



<script Language="JavaScript">

function ShowDetail(num)
{
  var N = num;
  DayWindow = window.open("Popup.asp?num="+N,"DetailView",["resizable=0,width=360,height=290"]);
}

</script>


<input type="button1" value="open win1" onclick="ShowDetail(1)">
<input type="button2" value="open win2" onclick="ShowDetail(2)">

put
 <body onLoad="if(window.focus) window.focus()">

in the page you load

I had a similar problem using links instead of buttons, Michel helped me with it, it worked for both Netscape and IE. You can have a look at the way it works at:

how about this:

<input type="button1" value="open win1" onclick="ShowDetail(1); window.setTimeout('window.detailview.focus()',500)">
<input type="button2" value="open win2" onclick="ShowDetail(2); window.setTimeout('window.detailview.focus()',500)">

I'm not sure but it might work!

Why?  If you use a hidden frameset with a script that sets focus in the hidden part of the frameset, this should cause the window to stay focused.

If you need help implementing, please let me know...
