Getting the document object cross-window

Aug 7, 2010 9:31 AM



I've been working on this application in which I have 2 windows.


Now the main window needs to make a call to the sub window sending a single function.


I have the following code to create the window:


var options = new air.NativeWindowInitOptions();
options.systemChrome = "none";
options.type = "lightweight";
options.resizable = true;
options.maximizable = true;
var winwid = 600;
var winhei = 500;
var mainWidowPos = new Array();
var mainWindowPos = getTopLeft(winwid,winhei); //This function is to calculate the center of the screen
var windowBounds = new air.Rectangle(mainWindowPos[0],mainWindowPos[1],winwid,winhei);
newHTMLLoader = air.HTMLLoader.createRootWindow(true, options, true, windowBounds); 
newHTMLLoader.load(new air.URLRequest(url));



Now that that window is created I need to make a call from window 1 to window 2 (the newly created one, the title of the window is SCR2_BILL).


Maybe this table can clear it up:



Window 1 (main)Window 2 (created by code)

This code is in window 1 and is being called:


for (var i = 0; i < air.NativeApplication.nativeApplication.openedWindows.length; i++) {
     if(air.NativeApplication.nativeApplication.openedWindows[i].title == "SCR2_BILL") {
function hideBill() {
     document.getElementById('bill').style.display = 'none';


The link does not exist because air.NativeApplication.nativeApplication.openedWindows[i].window.htmlLo ader.stage.nativeWindow is not an object. Does anyone know what the object is after openedWindows[i] which I can use to call functions from the document?


Thanks in advance,




PS: the code window 2 is executing is working, it has been tested.
