Open new window from pop-up

 12:13 pm on Jan 28, 2005 (gmt 0)


Got this small problem, I'm having some trouble with pop up windows.

What I have is a pop up window, and in that you have a link which points to another site, but I would like to open a new browser window.

Any ideas?

<a href="http://domain.com/" onclick="window.open("","scrollbars=yes,width=750,height=580");return true;">Go</a>

This won't work :o(

1. You need to use single quotes inside attributes, else the quoting doesn't make sense.

2. The URL needs to be given as the first arg to open().

3. Leave the URL in the href, it will be used as a normal link if JS is disabled.

4. return false, so the href isn't followed if JS is working normally.

5. The open method takes 3 arguments.

6. Read some documentation.

Thanks Bernard.

That did work.

I'll go and read some JavaScript. :o)
