hello there , I have tag <body onunload=openwin() function in a html page , when I close that html page window pops up using
window.open() function , it is working fine with IExplorer but
with netscape navigator 4.7 it is not woriking ,
when I close this html page in netscape 4.7 window is not poping up , but if I enter url in addressbar of netscape browser then onunload fires and window pops up. why onunload is not working for netscape ??
the window that is poping up has width=300 , height=300 , it is working fine in IExplorer but in netscape it does not follow width and height ??
is onunload in body tag works right with netscape ??
thanks

ray,
I too face a similar problem. This is true even with NS6 and Mozilla 1.1. When the page is unloaded the event is called but when the window is closed the unload event is not called.
Did u solve this?
thanks
