I got two browser windows on the same domain,
one is the main window and the second is small popup window.
i found this: How to Communicate between two browser windows?
but, the problem is the popup opens as event on the local computer by 3rd party software... and i don't wish to communicate back to the server, and reading the status at the main window, for slow time issues..
i wish to transfer some data from the popup directly to the main window via JS (and close the popup right after).
the event is a VOIP new income call opened by the local phone soft dialer with parameters, and the main window is a browser CRM that will need to show incoming call status via JS on the same page, AJAX-like [only local].
maybe there is a way to communicate between browser to windows application?, so the 3rd party software will send data to it and the application will communicate to the window (or Firefox extension - but i prefer without the need to install more addons)...
what approach should i take? what do you think is the solution?
thanks allot. ;)
If the one browser does not open up the other browser, there is no way for the two browsers to talk through window.opener.
What you could try is storing data into localstorage and have the windows poll localstorage for changes.
