how to pop up a new window using javascript?

I am editing the menu_array.js file, when someone clicks on a menu item, I want to pop open a new window using javascript (to resize the window, remove menu bars, etc). This causes a javascript error "Expected: ')'". Here's the code for the menu item:

Code: Select all

,"<img src=xpquestion.gif border=0>About","javascript:window.open('popup.htm','_blank','height=150,width=350,status=no,titlebar=no,toolbar=no,menubar=no,location=no'); onbordercolor=316AC5;offbordercolor=FFFFFF;",,"About",0



Thanks in Advance.

Do you really need to use JS to do this? On my page I just use the following:

Code: Select all

,"Wigan MBC","http://www.wiganmbc.gov.uk/ target=newframe",,"Wigan Metropolitan Borough Council",1


the target=newframe seems to do the job.

Yes, I do have to use JavaScript for this, so that the window can be opened with the correct height & width, and remove status, menu and tool bars.

Here is the line of code that I use to do what you are asking and the actual function within my index file. Hope it helps.



"News","javascript:openNewWindow(\"news.htm\",310,350,\"scrollbars=yes\") onbackcolor=55bbff;offbackcolor=ff0000;",,"PopUp News",1
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
<script language="JavaScript">
<!--

//-->
function openNewWindow(winURL,winWidth,winHeight,winConfig)
{
mmConfig=""
mmConfig="width="+winWidth+","
mmConfig+="height="+winHeight+","
mmConfig+=winConfig
var mmWin=open(winURL,"",mmConfig);
mmWin.focus();
}//-->
</script>

No, the line of code within the menu_array.js file is Version 3 code.
The line of code calls the function and passes the name of the file to display in the pop up window, height and width and tells it to put scroll bars on the popup window.

Does the menu sample at http://www.milonic.com/menusample.php?sampleid=11 not help?

There are instructions for opening windows using windowFeatures on that page.

Cheers
