Hello Folks,

I've a website & with an option to open window popup.
I am able to open window popup & restricted with same popup (in case user click again to open window popup) but once request post then again, new popup opens (if user clicks on that option).

FYI, used
var newWindowpopup = null

checked for equal to null OR closed then open new window otherwise not

Open in new window


Do you have any thought to open same window popup (if already open) irrespective post to server? As you know, it should be browser compatibility.

Best Regards

The second argument of the window.open call is the name of the window:

window.open( url, name, specs, replace ) See: window.open on w3schools

If you use window.open(url1, "myWindow") and then later window.open(url2, "myWindow") then url2 should load in the earlier created window.

You can still assign the window to a variable such that later you can add focus to make the 2nd opening pop in front.
