Global context / switching windows?

I have a series of windows in a TabGroup. From within one of the windows I'd like to switch to another window.

That is: I have app.js where the tabgroup is defined. One of the windows is implemented in login.js where the user can provide their username/password and login. I'd like to switch from login.js to the main window (implemented in main.js). I don't seem to have access to the variables defined in app.js .

What's the general pattern for doing this?

  • hi Parand,
    I'm developing the application which having the same windows like yours and want to switch between them. and I use win.close() and win.open(). You can try it.

  • Hello,

    I don't know whether this will help you, but if 1 window = 1 tab in your app, you can always use something like 'tabGroup.setActiveTab(x)' where x is the number of the tab you want to activate.

    Best regards,
