Chapter 15. window > Description

Description

The window object is as fundamental to client-side JavaScript as any of the core objects of JavaScript. It is a container for all objects you create, both directly via JavaScript and indirectly through the DOM. However, it is also the first object where standards developed by the W3C and the ECMA do not truly apply. Thus, while the window object has many objects common to both Netscape and Internet Explorer browsers, each browser adds its own proprietary properties and methods as well.

Common window Object Names

You can have several window objects simultaneously in a master window: the topmost window, framesets, framed windows, pop-up windows, and inline frames are all considered window objects. In addition, there is a legitimate concern for calling Layer() objects (discussed in Chapter 28, “Text Elements”) window objects, though these are considered properties of the document.layers object.
