On clicking a particular button in a web page, a pop up appears. And after clicking submit on the pop up, my parent window should get refreshed but the pop up window should be focused. But i find the pop up window goes behind the parent window screen and i couldn't focus on the pop up window using window.focus() method. Kindly provide a solution to place the focus on the pop up window while the parent window refreshing should also happen. And am using IE8. I have tried the following approach.


var popup;
parentwindow = window.open(.........);
//...parentwindow refreshing code.
popup = window.open(.....);
popup.focus(); or popup.window.focus();
