proasp_codeclinic thread: Sessions and new browser windows


Message #1 by dfalconer@g... on Wed, 19 Jun 2002 09:44:11
It all depends.

If the new window spawns a new process, then the new process doesn't have
access to the in-memory session cookies that the old process has.

Whether the new window has its own process depends on the browser, and what
settings you have set for it...

Cheers
Ken

: Hi
: I have a user logged in to a members area. When i try to use a javascript
: pop window function it does not recognise that they are in a session in
: the new window that is opened and boots them back to the login page in
: that window. I thought that sessins carried across new windows opened with
: Javascript???
