Default getting all pop-ups

hi all,
   How shall I get the windows objects of all the pop-ups which have been opened through a certain page(via window.open call) just like the way one can get all of the window objects of child frames of a page through window.frames collection(and I don't want to save all the handlers of the pop-ups while opening them in order to close them later).

You can only do that by keeping track of them when they're opened, such as:
var popups = new Array();

function openWindow(sURL, sName, sFeatures) {
    var oPopup = window.open(sURL, sName, sFeatures);
    return oPopup;
Then use the openWindow() function whenever you want to open a new window. Each new instance will be saved in the popups array.

Thanks but as I mentioned I don't tend to it this way.
if there were such a property in window object (for example childWindows[] )
then I could simply run a recursive function and close all open popups through any frame or popup when the user signs out in a complex portal...
