View Full Version : Sniffing Child Window URL

01-26-2005, 09:24 PM
I'm working on a site that runs with a partner's website and I am writing a web page that provides instructions in another languate to the other site. I would like to be able to sniff the URL of the child window in which my partner's web site is displayed and so be able to provide context-sensitive instructions. So far all trials using JavaScript have failed. I've tried referencing the window using the

partner = window.open("http://www.someplace.com", "partner")

command, but when using the


command, my JavaScript Console brings up the following error:

Error: uncaught exception: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x8007000e (NS_ERROR_OUT_OF_MEMORY) [nsIDOMNSHTMLDocument.write]" nsresult: "0x8007000e (NS_ERROR_OUT_OF_MEMORY)" location: "JS frame :: http://hawktec/gltd2.0/esltools/instructions.asp :: <TOP_LEVEL> :: line 27" data: no]

Is it even possible to do what I'm trying to do with JavaScript? If not, please cut me short before I embarrass myself any more.
