    window.opener Redirect 1

    There was a scripting error on this page. While it is being addressed by site editors, you can view partial content below.

    {{ APIRef }}

    Summary

    Returns a reference to the window that opened this current window.

    Syntax

    objRef = window.opener;
    

    Example

    if (window.opener != indexWin) {
      referToTop(window.opener);
    }
    

    Notes

    When a window is opened from another window, it maintains a reference to that first window as window.opener. If the current window has no opener, this method returns NULL.  Windows Phone browser does not support window.opener.  It is also not supported in IE if the opener is in a different security zone.
