Hi evolt

stumped me this one. doing a bit of JS.

ok what i want to do is this:

There is a main window with a link to a little window which displays 
program execution output, updates the main window, closes itself  and 
focus is then returned to the main window. 

Currently i can open the little window, run data, make it close itself 
and so return to the main window, but i cant refresh the main window 
before the little one closes. so the data that is run pertains to the 
main window and i dont want the user to have to press the refresh button.

hope thats clear.

do i have to give the main window a name and then refresh that named 
window? how is refreshing done in js?

something like window.name.refresh? nothing like that in the api tho'

any ideas, thanks!
