Javascript Popup

A javascript popup that reuses the popup window once it is opened.

<script type="text/javascript">

function myOpenWindow(winURL, winName, winFeatures, winObj)
	var theWin;
	if (winObj != null)
		if (!winObj.closed) 
			return winObj;
	theWin =, winName, winFeatures);
	return theWin;

var myWin = null;


This is a code snippet that creates a popup and reuses the window once it is opened

<a href="" onclick="myWin=myOpenWindow(this,
'Window Name','height=400,width=300,scrollbars=no',myWin); return false">Example Link</a>

Here is an example use of the code
