hi experts.
got a problem using this line. For some reason my browser appears with an  error. The popup opens fine, but it always opens with an extra window telling me there are errors. Seems this error does NOT appear using Internet Explorer.


<?php echo "<a href=javascript: onclick=\"javascript:window.open('mypage.php?id=". $ID."', 'test', 'fullscreen=no,toolbar=no,status=yes,menubar=no,scrollbars=yes,resizable=yes,directories=no,location=no,width=400,height=200,left=250,top=300')\">". $user." </a><br />";?>

Just a slip of mind, but couldn't it be that the error is generated in the mypage.php and not during the generation of this line?

Firefox by any chance? i see the same thing

It could be because of the "javascript:" in the href, try removing it

<?php echo "<a href=\"\" onclick=\"javascript:window.open('mypage.php?id=". $ID."', 'test', 'fullscreen=no,toolbar=no,status=yes,menubar=no,scrollbars=yes,resizable=yes,directories=no,location=no,width=400,height=200,left=250,top=300')\">". $user." </a><br />";?>

Actually better still use JavaScript:void

<?php echo "<a href=\"javascript:void\" onclick=\"javascript:window.open('mypage.php?id=hk', 'test', 'fullscreen=no,toolbar=no,status=yes,menubar=no,scrollbars=yes,resizable=yes,directories=no,location=no,width=400,height=200,left=250,top=300')\">yjh </a><br />";?>

This isn't gonna look pretty, but it works...for me.

<?php echo "<a href=\"mypage.php?id=".$ID."\" target=\"_blah\" onclick=\"return window.open('mypage.php?id=". $ID."', '_blah', 'fullscreen=no,toolbar=no,status=yes,menubar=no,scrollbars=yes,resizable=yes,directories=no,location=no,width=400,height=200,left=250,top=300')\">". $user." </a><br />";?>

I know it looks like it's just using target="_blah" to make a new window, but if the target urls AND target windows in both are the same...you actually get the window you specify in the window.open...

Tested on Netscape, firefox, and IE...on WinXP

Hi all,

::kephillips::

Why not to use an external JS function and call it each time you need it?

Try this:

<script language="javascript">
<!--
function myWindow( id ){
      var w = open('mypage.php?id=' + id, 'test', 'fullscreen=no,toolbar=no,status=yes,menubar=no,scrollbars=yes,resizable=yes,directories=no,location=no,width=400,height=200,left=250,top=300');
}
//-->
</script>

<?php
      echo "<a href=\"#\" onclick=\"myWindow( '".$ID."' )\">".$user." </a><br />";
?>

Hope that helps :)

Try this one, use # in href

<?php echo "<a href='#' onclick=\"javascript:window.open('mypage.php?id=". $ID."', 'test', 'fullscreen=no,toolbar=no,status=yes,menubar=no,scrollbars=yes,resizable=yes,directories=no,location=no,width=400,height=200,left=250,top=300')\">". $user." </a><br />";?>
