Hi There,

Simple webview created as such:

<webview id="appFrame" src="" plugins allowpopups preload="vendor/ddx/preload.js" autosize="on" minwidth="1024" minheight="768" partition="persist:ddx"></webview>

(preload.js sets ipcRenderer) makes a call to var win = The window is opened as expected, and the reference to the opened window returned win is an instance of BrowserWindowProxy. Calls to the win instance of BrowserWindowProxy API work without issue.

However, the resultant window has window.opener set to null breaking any IPC communication between child to parent.

  • Electron version: 1.2.1
  • Operating system: Windows 10

@zcbenz zcbenz changed the title from window.opener null to window.opener is null in window opened by webview Jun 9, 2016
