How to control window size

HI

I have a requirement that would open a link in a smaller window

Here is the link
@If(ItemNo ="";""; "[<A HREF=\'/" + @ReplaceSubstring(@Subset(@DbName;-1); "\\"; "/") + "/LINK2/" + ItemNo + "?Opendocument" + "\'>Click Link to Open Action</A>]")

Cheers

You have to change the call to window.open ... there are parameters for the call, which include width and height values.

url =  @ReplaceSubstring(@Subset(@DbName;-1); "\\"; "/") + "/LINK2/" + ItemNo + "?Opendocument";What do they click on to open window???
"[<A HREF=" + "javscript:winOpen(\'" + url +  "\')" + "</A>]"

@return will stop execution of href and just point to current document if itemno happens to be null.

Partha blame it on my fat finger ;-)

OK

I have added, the folowing . It now shows Click Link to open action beside every document

@If(ItemNo ="";@Return("#");"" );
url =  @ReplaceSubstring(@Subset(@DbName;-1); "\\"; "/") + "/LINK2/" + ItemNo + "?Opendocument";
"[<A HREF=" + "javascript:winOpen('" + url +  "')" + ">Click Link to open action</A>]"
 
function winOpen(url) {
window.open( url, "height=100,widht=100");
}
The URL is javascript: RTGOpenWindow('javascript:winOpen('')', 'RTGWin')
When clicked it says erorr on page
HemanthaKumar

missed : in the formula, try this one

@If(ItemNo ="";@Return("#");"" );
url :=  @ReplaceSubstring(@Subset(@DbName;-1); "\\"; "/") + "/LINK2/" + ItemNo + "?Opendocument";
"[<A HREF=" + "javascript:winOpen('" + url +  "')" + ">Click Link to open action</A>]"

Here is the URL
javascript: RTGOpenWindow('javascript:winOpen('PPM/PPMREQ.nsf/LINK2/100150?Opendocument')', 'RTGWin')

I get error on page still. Is it theRTGOpenWindow?

there is no RTGopenwindow, use the one which hemanth gave you

function RTGOpenWindow( DocURL, WinName, WinArgs, WinTitle )
{
      a = WinArgs ? WinArgs : "left=0, top=0,width=" + (screen.availWidth-7) + ",height=" + (screen.availHeight-27) + ",status=no,toolbar=no,menubar=no,location=no,resizable=no"
      n = WinName ? WinName : "RTG" + document.uniqueID
      t = WinTitle ? WinTitle : ""
      win = window.open(DocURL, n, a)
      setTimeout("win.focus()", 100)

}

Oh, James, c'mon, it was staring you in the face, all along!  RTGOpenWindow dynamically calculates what it thinks is an appropriate window size (availWidth-7, availHeight-27), unless you pass in your own parameters.

So, ALL you need to do is change the RTGOpenWindow call:

javascript: RTGOpenWindow('PPM/PPMREQ.nsf/LINK2/100150?Opendocument', 'RTGWin', 'width=400,height=250')

Ya

I saw that I just can't figure out why it is opening full screen
HemanthaKumar

well you have the function already ?

Qwal already gave the method how to use it. Unless you are getting some other error.

qwaletee

James,

I remember you called this function elsewhere, so you know how to use it. Theonly difference is, that you need to make sure there is a third parameter to the RTF... call, which says 'width=x,height=y' (x and y are pixel counts).
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
