    Default Open Links in Popup window?

    I know there is a way to open a link in a seperate popup window. Is it possible to open a link to an image in a popup window (centered) which is the EXACT same size of the image itself? if not is there a way to open a popup window from a link to a image centered and at a customizable size?

    Cheers

    <
    script language="JavaScript">
    <!--
    function 
    windowOpen(windowname,xsize,ysize) {
            var 
    thiswinopen('',windowname,'width='+xsize+',height='+ysize+',resizable=yes,scrollbars=yes');

    </
    body>
    <
    a HREF="mypage.html" TARGET="picturepage" onClick="windowOpen('picturepage',640,480)">HTML Picture</a>

    or

    <
    a HREF="mypicture.jpg" TARGET="picturepage" onClick="windowOpen('picturepage',640,480)">Actual Picture</a>
    </
    body>
    </
    html
    The above code works in the way you describe, the first example HTML Picture, is the correct way of doing it. So basically the popup has HTML code in it that displays your picture.

    The second example, Actual Picture, will work on some peoples browsers and not others. You make an assumption on peoples IE/Computer configuration when doing this.

    Hope this helps

    &lt;a HREF="mypage.html" TARGET="picturepage " onClick="windowOpen('picturepage ',640,480)"&gt;


    make sure that the TARGET tag and the first parameter of the call in the onClick are the same, including the case. If they are, then send me a URL or the code, and I will take a gander...

    just tried it myself, and it works fine.

    PHP Code:
    <html>
    <
    head>
    <
    script language="JavaScript">
    <!--
    function 
    windowOpen(windowname,xsize,ysize) {
            var 
    thiswinopen('',windowname,'width='+xsize+',height='+ysize+',resizable=yes,scrollbars=yes');
            if (
    thiswin.focusthiswin.focus(); }
    //-->
    </script>
    </
    head>
    <
    body>
        <
    a HREF="pictures.htm" TARGET="picturepage" onClick="windowOpen('picturepage',640,480)">1</a>
    </
    body>
    </
    html
    loaded up the pictures.htm file up fine in a sized new window.. which browser are you trying this in? are you sure there is nothing else calling a windowOpen function to open up another window?

    I'm also trying to do something similar and using the above code works fine for me... Is it possible rather than have the user click some text (HTML picture in the above) you could have them click on a graphic?
