Setting a popup window's base target to caller window? - Macromedia Dynamic HTML

Quick question for you... I have a link, say, on "page.html": <a href="#" onClick="window.open('show_which_vessels.asp?Versi onID=1','Vessels','width=300,h eight=300,toolbar=no, location=no,directories=no,status=no,menubar=no,sc rollbars=no,copyhistory=no, resizable=yes');return false">CLICK HERE</a> ... which as you can see opens a small new window for me. It contains the "show_which_vessels.asp" page. This page has links on it - I would like those links to have a base target of the ORIGINAL caller window (page.html). How can this be done? I know you have to "nickname" windows, and reference using those... but how to get the POPUP knowing its base target is the original page is something I can't find any tutorials/notes on! ...

    Default Setting a popup window's base target to caller window?

    Quick question for you...

    I have a link, say, on "page.html":
    <a href="#"
    onClick="window.open('show_which_vessels.asp?Versi onID=1','Vessels','width=300,h
    eight=300,toolbar=no,
    location=no,directories=no,status=no,menubar=no,sc rollbars=no,copyhistory=no,
    resizable=yes');return false">CLICK HERE</a>

    ... which as you can see opens a small new window for me. It contains the
    "show_which_vessels.asp" page. This page has links on it - I would like those
    links to have a base target of the ORIGINAL caller window (page.html).

    How can this be done? I know you have to "nickname" windows, and reference
    using those... but how to get the POPUP knowing its base target is the original
    page is something I can't find any tutorials/notes on!

    Thanks! :)

    Make the main page have this code -

    <body onLoad="self.name('foobar')"....

    and the link would then need to be targeted at foobar, e.g., <a
    href="page.html" target="foobar".....
