View Full Version : Popup with URL of all open windows.

Ok, let me first say I do not have formal Java/Javascript training although I know VB and VB Script. I know programming and have fooled around with JavaScript and made many things work. I have searched for a solution to what I want to do but I havent found anything that helps me do what I want to do.

What I want to do is generate a new window (I will refer to the page as a popup) that when opened will tell me a list of all the URLs of windows currently open.

A real world example:

Lets say I have 3 windows open: the page that generates the popup, yahoo.com, and ebay.com. The ideal scenario would be when I click a graphic on the generating page, a popup comes up with http://www.yahoo.com and http://www.ebay.com (without the generating page URL). The scond to ideal scenario would generate a popup with yahoo, ebay, and the generating page's URL.

Any help would greatly be appreciated. If you dont want to hold my hand throught this process, a nudge in the right direction would also be appreciated.

Thanks to any and all who reply,

I'd say, no way. You can't access the Location object of windows containing documents from another domain. There is also no collection exposed of current browser instances (windows) open, although you could 'get' these objects by using a naming convention, with window.open(), which can find windows you've opened with a particular name.

Otherwise, don't think so. :(

Then again there's iewin....???
