Navigating back and forth between windows in iphone

Hey all,

I'm having trouble with window navigation in iphone. In android it's easy, I open a new window and then close the current one:

var win = Ti.UI.currentWindow;
var newWindow = new Window({ url: "myurl.js", title: "mytitle" });

However in iphone this doesn't work, it opens the new window for a second and then it closes.

I've tried capturing the current window close event and opening the new window in there and have also tried using a settimeout and waiting a second after closing the current window to open the new window but to no avail, it still closes the new window after a second. The last thing I tried was opening all of my windows on app load and then switching between them with a custom app event that calls .hide() and .show() on each window to toggle visibility, but it seems that these methods don't do anything.

So how do you switch back and forth between windows in iphone?? Help!!

  • not sure but could it be that because win is the current window, when you oopen newWindow, newWindow becomes the current window so your win.close closes newWindow? try changing win from currentWindow to a defined window.

    im new to this so i may be way off base
