Hi, Thank you very much for the information, but the solution you have given is after getting the handle. At the time of getting the handle script 'OPEN' will open the window if it doesn't exists. I want to check whether window exists before this itself, ie: before actually doing the script 'OPEN'. Thanks and expecting to hear from u Regards A K George -----Original Message----- From: thelist-admin at lists.evolt.org [mailto:thelist-admin at lists.evolt.org]On Behalf Of Peter-Paul Koch Sent: Tuesday, November 27, 2001 2:17 PM To: thelist at lists.evolt.org Subject: Re: [thelist] How to get the handle of the window using the name >From: Aryakumar K George var win=open('','<Window name>') > >but this piece of code opens the window to get the handle if it is not >available.
