Advice on application structure needed

I need a bit of advice on the structure of my application. I have tried different methods, but have not been able to find the correct way.

In essence, I am trying to make an application with three windows. Based on a validation in app.js when the application opens or resumes, it shows either of these three windows. I do not want to have a tabGroup in my app.

This example gives an idea of my app.js. The problem with this approach is that my windows does not get the title declared in the createWindow function. Am I going about this wrong, and is there a better way of constructing such an app?


// Create application main window
var main = Ti.UI.createWindow();

// Contruct application windows
var win1 = Titanium.UI.createWindow({
    backgroundColor: "Red", 
    title: 'Window 1',

var win2 = Titanium.UI.createWindow({
    backgroundColor: "Green", 
    title: 'Window 2'

var win3 = Titanium.UI.createWindow({
    backgroundColor: "blue", 
    title: 'Window 3'

// Check login
if(Login()) {
    // Check status    
    if(Status()) {
    } else {
} else {


Any help on this is much appreciated!

  • When we do our pro services apps, we find that most often we use a single execution context (instead of many windows with their own context). If it were me, I would use views instead of windows, and arrange them in a stack, swapping out which one is visible depending on login state:
