In the
design tab,
click on behaviors...
then click on Open Browser Window....
just fill in the options in this box and it will put the code into your dreamweaver page.

This will not be centered, nor will he be able to control the atributes.

hi i tried to have a go with the link you entered rockmansattic but i had little luck, probably my fault as im not too good with java. I had a look in the dreamweaver help section and it says

''Use the Open Browser Window action to open a URL in a new window. You can specify the properties of the new window, including its size, attributes (whether it is resizable, has a menu bar, and so on), and name. For example, you can use this behavior to open a larger image in a separate window when the visitor clicks a thumbnail image; with this behavior, you can make the new window the exact size of the image''

this seems to be what i need as im not too fussed if it isnt centered, but the only thing is, i need the window to open up on a text link, but i can only use this behaviour on images etc...?

is there a way of making the behaviours work on text?

if not i will have to make images of all my text, which would be a lot, and that would then take alot of time etc..

hope someone can shed some light

cheers

Yes, you can use an onclick command for text

But the link I sent you should work best,

Just follow the directions in the script....copy and paste the head content then copy the link.

Let me know i fyou have any other problems.

Here is the overall page using the like I suggested

<%@LANGUAGE="VBSCRIPT" CODEPAGE="1252"%>
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
<html>
<head>
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">

<!-- Begin
function NewWindow(mypage, myname, w, h, scroll) {
var winl = (screen.width - w) / 2;
var wint = (screen.height - h) / 2;
winprops = 'height='+h+',width='+w+',top='+wint+',left='+winl+',scrollbars='+scroll+',resizable'
win = window.open(mypage, myname, winprops)
if (parseInt(navigator.appVersion) >= 4) { win.window.focus(); }
}
//  End -->
</script>
</head>

<body alink="#CC3333">
<a href="http://www.yahoo.com/" onclick="NewWindow(this.href,'name','400','600','yes');return false;">Popup Yahoo.com</a>
</body>
</html>
