This is what I have to open a new window:

<%@include file="/site/includes/secure.jsp"%>
<!--%@include file="/site/includes/checklogin.jsp"%-->
<Script>
<!--
window.open('Annual_Report_c_r.pdf','','width=800,height=600,toolbar=1,location=0,directories=0,status=1,menubar=1,scrollbars=1,resizable=1');
window.history.go(-2);
//-->
</Script>

The problem is when it first open, there would be 2 pdf window open at once. The second time I open it, then it will open normally.  How can I fix this?

Thanks!

If there's no history.back(), the first window will be showing blank. If I do history.go(-1), to go back one page, the page will keep on reload, because of the <!--%@include file="/site/includes/checklogin.jsp"%-->

So that's why I need to go back 2 pages.

I think that history is forcing the script to run two times........
do one thing...

<!--
window.open('Annual_Report_c_r.pdf','','width=800,height=600,toolbar=1,location=0,directories=0,status=1,menubar=1,scrollbars=1,resizable=1');
alert("test");
window.history.go(-2);
//-->
</Script>
and see how many times you see this alert.....

do not have history,back().... beacuse it will force the HTML to load from the cache and as HTML is loading it will fire up the script...

you might put some dealy on the script so that your includes load up......and then you will not need history.back()

can you be more specific on how this can be done without using the window.history.go(-2)? I need the first window to display the website content also without history.back(), the first window is blank.

<!--
window.setTimeout(500);
window.open('Annual_Report_c_r.pdf','','width=800,height=600,toolbar=1,location=0,directories=0,status=1,menubar=1,scrollbars=1,resizable=1');
//-->
</Script>


try this... it will wait for half a second before opening the pdf box.. in that much time your parent page should get loaded

The first window is still blank no matter how long the time interval is set to.

Well normally when you assign the window.open to a var it always open the same window, that's why I told you tol test it, if it still opens you a new window maybe is becose of the includes.

Can you pos the jsp codes here?

Shouldn't it be like this:
<%
     String UID =(String)  session.getAttribute("UID")
     If (UID==null || UID.equals("")) {
          response.sendRedirect("/site/content/login.jsp?url=" + request.getHeader("SCRIPT_NAME"))
     }
%>

     If (UID==null || UID.equals("")) {
          response.sendRedirect("/site/content/login.jsp?url=" + request.getServletPath());

Well I guess is been a missundertood, becose it wasn't opening 2 windows but keeping the opener one opened so this could worked to:

<%@include file="/site/includes/secure.jsp"%>
<!--%@include file="/site/includes/checklogin.jsp"%-->
<Script>
<!--
window.open('Annual_Report_c_r.pdf','','width=800,height=600,toolbar=1,location=0,directories=0,status=1,menubar=1,scrollbars=1,resizable=1');
window.close();
//-->
</Script>
