window.name Redirect 1

« window


Gets/sets the name of the window.


string = window.name;
window.name = string;


window.name = "lab_view";


The name of the window is used primarily for setting targets for hyperlinks and forms. Windows do not need to have names.

It has also been used in some frameworks for providing cross-domain messaging (e.g., SessionVars and Dojo's dojox.io.windowName) as a more secure alternative to JSONP.
