Change main window href from IE search panel, after user has left my main page?

Discussion in 'Javascript' started by Robert Oschler, Oct 12, 2004.

  1. I know how to load a document into the "Search" panel/sidebar in Internet
    Explorer. I also know that I can use the "window.opener" property, from the
    "Search" sidebar document, to change the main window's URL *as long as the
    user has not navigated away from my web page* that loaded the document into
    the "Search" sidebar.

    But I would like to know if there is a way to change the main window's URL
    even *after* the user has navigated away from my main web page, which means
    that for the "Search" sidebar document, the "window.opener" property is now
    invalid. Otherwise, the links in the "Search" sidebar won't be very useful,
    now that the user has left my main web page (but the "Search" Sidebar still
    shows my "Search" sidebar document).

    Thanks.

    You do not need window.opener. You do not even need Javascript. Just specify
    target="_main" in the Search pane's document's links...
