use javascript - call the window some unique name, that way it'll reuse the
window if it's already open
in the page for that window, use window.focus() to bring it to the front
look at and hunt around for the javascript
manual (I haven't been there for a while so I don't know how easy it is to
find now, I've downloaded the pdf version a while ago and use that)

Subject: [PHP] A Details Popup

Hi everyone,

I have a listed result from the MySQL table but I want the user to be able
to get more information without having to use the back button a lot after
they finish viewing details. So when the user clicks on one of the records
then it will open a new window to view the detailed information. So it would
need to pass the serial number for the table to the new window. I would like
for the window to be as restricted as possible. (no resize, no menu options,
etc...)  really just a close [x] is all it should have. When the user clicks
on one record and the new window opens with the detailed info, then if they
do not close that new window before clicking on another record, then the new
details for that record should just reload in the second window. (Since it
is still open) Know what I mean? I can see it in my head, but I am not very
fluent with php and or Javascript. Can anyone help me on this?

Apache 1.3.22 + MySQL + PHP 4.1 on Win2K
