I have a net4 application that opens a pop up window via JavaScript

The pop up window is long and narrow and works well with the main window.

There is a button on the main window where the user can click a to get additional information.

That information is in the pop up.

The FIRST time the user clicks the button, the pop up appears on top of the main window.
(I do not close the pop up.)

The next time the user clicks the more info button, the pop up window does not appear on top of the main window.  It is behind the main window.

I want to pop up to always appear on top of the main window.

I have tried to set the focus to the pop up in JavaScript, but it does not seem to work.

I do not know JavaScript, and I am not a professional developer.  

Here is the java that I use.

    function poponload() {
        testwindow ="<%= TextBox_i_re.text %>", "mywindow", "left=10,location=0,toolbar=0,menubar=0,status=0,resizable=0,scrollbars=yes,toolbar=0,width=600,height=3100");
        testwindow.moveTo(0, 0);
        openPreviewWindow('', 1);


Thanks for the advice.
