Hi,
   I have a popup calendar script that i need to make the popup calendar open centered in the browser window.  Here's the script in the javascript file that gets the calendar:

function getCalendarFor(target,rules) {
 ppcSV = target;
 ppcRL = rules;
 if (ppcFC) {setCalendar();ppcFC = false;}
 if ((ppcSV != null)&&(ppcSV)) {
  if (ppcIE) {
   var obj = document.all['PopUpCalendar'];
   obj.style.left = document.body.scrollLeft+event.clientX;
   obj.style.top  = document.body.scrollTop+event.clientY;
   obj.style.visibility = "visible";}
  else if (ppcNN) {
   var obj = document.layers['PopUpCalendar'];
   obj.left = ppcXC
   obj.top  = ppcYC
   obj.visibility = "show";}
  else {showError(ppcER[0]);}}
 else {showError(ppcER[1]);}}

*******************************************************

And, here's the code that's on the html page:

<script language="JavaScript">
if (document.all) {
 document.writeln("<div id=\"PopUpCalendar\" style=\"position:absolute; left:0px; top:0px; z-index:7; width:200px; height:77px; overflow: visible; visibility: hidden; background-color: #FFFFFF; border: 1px none #000000\" onMouseOver=\"if(ppcTI){clearTimeout(ppcTI);ppcTI=false;}\" onMouseOut=\"ppcTI=setTimeout(\'hideCalendar()\',500)\">");
 document.writeln("<div id=\"monthSelector\" style=\"position:absolute; left:0px; top:0px; z-index:9; width:181px; height:27px; overflow: visible; visibility:inherit\">");}
else if (document.layers) {
 document.writeln("<layer id=\"PopUpCalendar\" pagex=\"0\" pagey=\"0\" width=\"200\" height=\"200\" z-index=\"100\" visibility=\"hide\" bgcolor=\"#FFFFFF\" onMouseOver=\"if(ppcTI){clearTimeout(ppcTI);ppcTI=false;}\" onMouseOut=\"ppcTI=setTimeout('hideCalendar()',500)\">");
 document.writeln("<layer id=\"monthSelector\" left=\"0\" top=\"0\" width=\"181\" height=\"27\" z-index=\"9\" visibility=\"inherit\">");}
else {
 document.writeln("<p><font color=\"#FF0000\"><b>Error ! The current browser is either too old or too modern (usind DOM document structure).</b></font></p>");}

Try this:

function getCalendarFor(target,rules) {
 ppcSV = target;
 ppcRL = rules;
 if (ppcFC) {setCalendar();ppcFC = false;}
 if ((ppcSV != null)&&(ppcSV)) {
  if (ppcIE) {
   var obj = document.all['PopUpCalendar'];
   obj.style.left = document.body.scrollLeft+(document.body.clientWidth-obj.offsetWidth)/2;
   obj.style.top  = document.body.scrollTop+(document.body.clientHeight-obj.offsetHeight)/2;
   obj.style.visibility = "visible";}
  else if (ppcNN) {
   var obj = document.layers['PopUpCalendar'];
   obj.left = ppcXC
   obj.top  = ppcYC
   obj.visibility = "show";}
  else {showError(ppcER[0]);}}
 else {showError(ppcER[1]);}}
