Finding a previously opened browser window
Posted on 2011-09-29
Sorry about the beginners question...
I have a web application (written with Delphi/Intraweb - but i think this is not relevant to the problem) that renders a series of pages as the user works his way through the application.
I have a help window that i have opened and each time i render a new page i want to update the help window with the lastest help text.
So at the onLoad event i want to be able to find the help window and update its URL to the new help page.
How can i keep track of the window that i opened at the begining of the process. At the moment i can not see a way to keep track of it after each submit and render of new form.
Are there "global variables" in a web browser that are persistent between each submit?
