    Getting the document object cross-window




      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.htmlLoader.stage.nativeWin dow 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.
