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

Hi There,

Yes its possible to access the new windows's controls.

oNewWindow = window.open(ur params);

oNewWindow.formname.controlname will get you the control/s.
