Hi there,

can someone please tell me how to set the attributes of a popup window? With attributes, I mean:

- the size of the window
- which toolbars should be visible
- ...

The goal is to make a popup window which shows a description of a word. This popup window doesn't need a toolbar/buttons except for a 'close this window' button.

tnx in advance,

fledermaus

Since you are asking in the Dreamweaver section I guess you want a Dreamweaver answer to this :-)

There is an extension in DW that does all you ask for. You can set wich toolbar/buttons to show, where the pop-up is positioned and even an autmatic closing of the pop-up window if you want.

The extension, which is free , can be found on macromomedias dreamweaver exchange:
http://www.macromedia.com/exchange/dreamweaver/ and search for 'justso'. This will give you a link to the page where you can download the extension.

Good Luck! :-)

Hi klykken, only one question left: the solution you provided seems to be ok, except for one thing: it says onmouseOVER and I really need onmouseClick or something like that: can you tell me how I can change the onmouseover behaviour, if possible. Tnx in advance

fledermaus,
sure I can tell you, it's quite easy.
Here is what you do:

1. Highlight the link that has the pop-up javascript, or just click on it with your mouse so it is selected.
2. make sure you can see you behaviours panel/menu, if not press F8 to see it.
3. In the Behaviours menu click on where it says 'onmouseover'. You will then see an arrow appearing. By clicking on the arrow you can select different javascript events.
4. Choose 'onClick' and you should be all set.

:-)

hi, tnx for your quick comment but...
If I click on the arrow, the only choice I can make is... onmouseover. I looked it up and when I change the onmouseover into onclick using the html editor, then it shows onclick and it works.
I have no idea why it ain't showing more events when clicking the downarrow. But anyhow: my question is answered.
If someone might know the solution for the fact that I don't get other events when clicking the downarrow... Just let me know...

fledermaus,
I think i know why..
in the behaviours menu, on top it says: Events for:
change this to 4.0 and later browsers.
Now you'll be able to choose from a lot of javascript events
