What Doesn't Get Blocked by the Pop-up Blocker?
The Pop-up Blocker does not block pop-up windows that open as a direct result of a user action. A user-initiated action includes clicking a page element or tabbing to a link and then pressing ENTER. Pop-up windows are not blocked if they
Are opened by a link which the user clicked.
Are opened by applications that are running on the computer. These applications can include adware.
Are opened, on user-initiated actions, by ActiveX controls that are instantiated from a Web site.
Are opened from the Trusted Sites or Local Intranet zones.
Are launched from a Web site on a user's allow list. Users can add Web sites to their allow list through the Pop-up Blocker settings.
Are launched with the window.createPopup method. Note that Window Restrictions allow only one pop-up window at a time to be open on a page, and that they restrict pop-up windows launched with this method to the Internet Explorer client window.
So with that said, does anyone have any comments on the window.createPopup method?
