I have a page that on the body onload calls a funtcion to open a new window. The problem is that I only want this to happen when the window doesnt already exist. Hence the if !countentWindow. This doesnt work because the script doesnt no what contentWindow is. If i use a var contentWindow, then the if statement is always not true, and the eval is always called.

Any ideas?

function createContentWindow() {
      
      winHeight = screen.availHeight;
      maxX = screen.availWidth;
      mainWidth = maxX - 260;
            
      if (!contentWindow){
      eval ("contentWindow = window.open('about:blank', 'contentWindow', 'height=" + winHeight + ", width=" + mainWidth + ", toolbar=no,location=no,status=yes,menubar=no,scrollbars=yes,resizable=yes');");
            
      
      contentWindow.moveTo(260,0);

      contentWindow.resizeTo(mainWidth, winHeight)
      contentWindow.location.href="userview.asp";
      }

}

Check this:


function createContentWindow() {
   
    winHeight = screen.availHeight;
    maxX = screen.availWidth;
    mainWidth = maxX - 260;
         
    contentWindow = window.open('', 'contentWindow', 'height='+winHeight+',width='+mainWidth+',toolbar=no,location=no,status=yes,menubar=no,scrollbars=yes,resizable=yes');
    if(!contentWindow.document.body){
      contentWindow.location.href="userview.htm";
      contentWindow.resizeTo(mainWidth, winHeight)
      contentWindow.moveTo(260,0);
    }

}

That doesn't work because the    

contentWindow.location.href="userview.htm";

Is never reached.

This does seem to work though:

function createContentWindow() {
   
    winHeight = screen.availHeight;
    maxX = screen.availWidth;
    mainWidth = maxX - 260;
         
    contentWindow = window.open('', 'contentWindow', 'height='+winHeight+',width='+mainWidth+',toolbar=no,location=no,status=yes,menubar=no,scrollbars=yes,resizable=yes');
    if(contentWindow.location.href!='about:blank'){}
      else {
      contentWindow.location.href="userview.asp";
      contentWindow.resizeTo(mainWidth, winHeight)
      contentWindow.moveTo(260,0);
    }

}

Does this work for you:

function createContentWindow() {
   
    winHeight = screen.availHeight;
    maxX = screen.availWidth;
    mainWidth = maxX - 260;
         
    contentWindow = window.open('', 'contentWindow', 'height='+winHeight+',width='+mainWidth+',toolbar=no,location=no,status=yes,menubar=no,scrollbars=yes,resizable=yes');
    if(!contentWindow.myWindow){
      contentWindow.location.href="userview.htm";
      contentWindow.resizeTo(mainWidth, winHeight)
      contentWindow.moveTo(260,0);
      contentWindow.myWindow=true;
    }
}

Yea! That was the solution :-)

function createContentWindow() {
   
    winHeight = screen.availHeight;
    maxX = screen.availWidth;
    mainWidth = maxX - 260;
         
    contentWindow = window.open('', 'contentWindow', 'height='+winHeight+',width='+mainWidth+',toolbar=no,location=no,status=yes,menubar=no,scrollbars=yes,resizable=yes');
    if(contentWindow.location.href=="about:blank"){
      contentWindow.location.href="userview.htm";
      contentWindow.resizeTo(mainWidth, winHeight)
      contentWindow.moveTo(260,0);
    }
}
