1) Script Title:
DHTML Window widget (v1.03)

2) Script URL (on DD):

3) Describe problem:
I have the DHTML Window widget working well and opening up with iframe content. However what I wish is for a link within the iframe to be able to resize the open window.

Sussed it!!!

It comes down to giving the link to resize and change the window the same iframe name as the original:

ie if you had:
dhtmlwindow.open('myfirstwindow', 'iframe', 'www.someurl.html', 'A fancy title', 'width=770px,height=480px,resize=0,scrolling=0,center=1', 'recal')

the link to keep the same window but resize it would be:

parent.dhtmlwindow.open('myfirstwindow', 'iframe', 'www.somedifferenturl.html', 'A different fancy title', 'width=500px,height=200px,resize=0,scrolling=0,center=1', 'recal')

Seems so simple when you see how :o

To see it in action have a look at:

In the "Resources" box click on "view online demonstrations" and then pick one of the three:cool:

Yep, thanks for sharing how you resolved it. In general you navigate back to the parent window in JavaScript using "parent.".
