Hi All,

The problem is....
I have a parent window from which i open a child window.This child window has got a name.So i am able to close the child window when the parent window gets closed.
Now my problem is when i traverse to second window from parent window after opening a child window and here if i try to close the parent window i am not able to close the child window by accessing it through its name as the relation is lost.

Can anybody suggest me any way by which i can close my child window when parent window is closed.

Thanks,
Jyothsna

Some people will put a function on the child window that checks to make sure that the parent is still there and set it on an interval.
