HI,
nzjonboy's comment is ok but it wont disappear on its own.
Here is the modified code.


<html>
<head>
<script language="javascript">
function soundPop() {
closetime = 10; // Closes window after 10 seconds
                // 0 = do not close
sPop = window.open("soundPop.html","sPopup","left=300,top=250,width=300,height=10,addressbar=no, statusbar=no,menubar=no,scrollbar=no");

if (closetime) setTimeout("sPop.close();", closetime*1000);

}
</script>
</head>
<body>
<a href="javascript:soundPop()">Popup Sound</a>
</body>
</html>

here's code for the second

<html>
<body bgcolor="threedface">
<BGSOUND id="BGSOUND_ID" LOOP=1 SRC="sounds/Sound.wav">
</body>
</html>

GOOD LUCK...:)

here's some code for the first page

<html>
<head>
<script language="javascript">
     function soundPop() {
          sPop = window.open("soundPop.html","sPopup","left=300,top=250,width=300,height=10");
     }
</script>
</head>
<body>
<a href="javascript:soundPop()">Popup Sound</a>
</body>
</html>

here's code for the second

<html>
<body bgcolor="threedface">
<BGSOUND id="BGSOUND_ID" LOOP=1 SRC="sounds/Sound.wav">
</body>
</html>


the reason I have done it this way is becuase you cannot close a alert box with code. Still need sthe close function, I think the best way would be to have a timeout function in the second page that triggers after the length of the sound file.

hope this helps

hi, sorry so late to reply.

a modification request...instead of a link they click to open the box, how can I do it where, right when the homepage loads, the box opens itself automatically?

thanks very much!
