Hi,I have a problem with my site. I have links on the main page which open up a new sized window when you click on them. USing the code below:A HREF="java script:void(0)"onclick="window.open('newpage.html','linkname','height=400, width=700,scrollbars=yes')"These links open the window up fine, however, if the user doesn't close the window but clicks on the main window then tries another link, the content of the new window changes but it stays in the background. I want it to come to the front of the page so the user can read it!! I think its something to do with focus of the new window.....but i'm not really sure.I would be grateful for any help on this as its driving me crazy!!Thanks......

Try this:<script>var windowReference;function go(){windowReference = window.open('newpage.html','linkname','height=400, width=700,scrollbars=yes')}function focus(){windowReference.self.focus()}</script><body><A HREF="java script:go()">Open page</a><A HREF="java script:focus()">Focus page</a></body>

Try this:<script>var windowReference;function go(){windowReference = window.open('newpage.html','linkname','height=400, width=700,scrollbars=yes')}function focus(){windowReference.self.focus()}</script><body><A HREF="java script:go()">Open page</a><A HREF="java script:focus()">Focus page</a></body>
