Window.focus - IE - Strange Problem

Hello All

I'm having very strange problems with window focus in internet explorer.

1.  I've my default.aspx and in that I'm opening a new asp page called  Edi.aspx using
      Dim jscriptStr As String
                jscriptStr = "<script language=JavaScript> window.open('Edi.aspx','editorWin','height=5,width=555,left=300,top=300,toolbar=0,location=0, directories=0,status=0,menubar=0,scrollbars=no,resizable=0,titlebar=no');</script>"
                RegisterClientScriptBlock("clientScript", jscriptStr)

 In the Edi.aspx body tag I'm putting onload="javascript:top.focus();".

This is not working and the Edi.aspx is hiding behind the default.aspx. why is this happening? At the same time when I used this technique for a opening different page other.aspx its working.

Another big thing is- the above technique is working perfectly fine in firefox browser for both Edi.aspx and other.aspx.

I'm using IE.6.0.


2. Is there any way to access the controls in Edi.aspx from the default.aspx ( here Edi.aspx is opened from the default.aspx using window.open('Edi.aspx'))?


Thanks for your help
Aditya

1 -  try remove ="javascript:top.focus();" from the body, are you trying to make the pop window modal?


2 - I think you mean this? or if you want it the other way round use the query string to pass params :
one way to do this is with javascript (if you use server.transfer there are other ways)
I have a default.aspx page with a textbox and hyperlink to pop a window edi.aspx, notice the javascript function popper - it tells the pop window what control to set:
default.aspx
<%@ Page Language="C#"  AutoEventWireup="true"  CodeFile="Default.aspx.cs" Inherits="_Default" %>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" >
<head runat="server">
    <title>Untitled Page</title>
    <link type="text/css" href="StyleSheet.css" media="all" rel="Stylesheet" />
    <style type="text/css">

   
    </style>
    <script type="text/javascript">

function popper(strField)
{
                        window.open('edi.aspx?field=' + strField ,'Popup','width=300,height=190');
}

</script>
</head>
<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div>
        <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" runat="server" Height="20px" Width="155px"></asp:TextBox>
        <a href="javascript:;" onclick="popper('TextBox1');" title="Pick Date from Calendar">pop window</a>
    </div>
                              
    </form>
</body>
</html>

edit.aspx
<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="Edi.aspx.cs" Inherits="Edi" %>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" >
<head runat="server">
    <title>Untitled Page</title>
</head>
<body  bgcolor="black">
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div>
        <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
        <asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" OnClick="Button1_Click" Text="Close" /></div>
    </form>
</body>
</html>

code behind edi cs

    protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        string js = "<script type=\"text/javascript\">window.opener.form1.elements('" + Request.QueryString["field"] + "').value = '" + this.TextBox1.Text + "' ;this.window.close();</script>";

        Response.Write(js);
    }

this closes the popup and sets the text box on default.aspx to the text from the pop up window

this will should give you some starting points....
