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,
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...:)

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!
