Need to open up new windows and be able to use unique session variable values with the same session variable names?
Posted on 2004-10-12
I have a situation where I need to open new windows (10 max) where the user can toggle back and forth between windows. This is a lab inspection system where they will be inspecting up to 10 products at the same time. Toggling between the windows. Here is my problem:
I am passing url variables when I execute the windows.open command (see below). I then wanted to make the url variables be session variables for the new window ONLY. I want each window that opens to have unique session variable values, but the same names. I am thinking that I need each new window to be independant of the other. But it isn't working that way. Once the session is set in one window, it changes the session values in all the other windows.
Any other suggestion are welcome. Way to have each windows operate with independant session values, or an entiire different solution. Here is the open.window command ... Thanks, sulzener
