    Description

    I'm sure that many of you are frustrated with building systems that use multiple windows or allow user's to access the New Window menu to find out that your navigation script breaks under intermittent circumstances. The most probable cause of your problem is that your navigation script is using the PatternCount function to check for open window names. This quick article will demonstrate a bulletproof method for multiple-window navigation.
