openBrWindow features and help

I'm using the script

function MM_openBrWindow(theURL,winName,features) { //v2.0
window.open(theURL,winName,features); }

Now I'm using a CMS to put this into my page and I'm trying to find the easiest way of doing things. So can someone tell me if this works and how to do the following. I have the following code in my page.

<A onclick='MM_openBrWindow("/screens1.jpg",menubar="no",scrollbars="no",resizable="no",status="no")' href='#"'><IMG height=100 alt="" src="/screens1.jpg" width=100 border=0></A>

Is there a way to call the src from the image sourse it relates to so I don't have to key in the picture name twice. Something like.....
<A onclick='MM_openBrWindow(getURL)' ..........or something like that

Is there also a way to make the window size the same width and height as the real picture, so that when it's clicked on the image fits nice and neatly.

If anyone has a list of known fetaure commands that would be helpfull as well. (eg: scrollbars, resizable)

Sorry just new to this function. :0)

thanks in advance

Hi MrHep,

Fore your first question, I would recommend removing the onclick from the <a>. Instead, have this:

<a href="pictureSrcIfNoJavaScript.gif" onclick="return false;" target="_blank"><img src="picture.gif" name="myPic1" onclick="MM_openBrWindow(this.src,this.name,'features');" /></a>


As to set the window size to your picture, I would recommend for you to open this page:

<html>
<head>
<title>Loading Picture...</title>
<script language="javascript">
<!--

function loadPic() {
   var thesrc="about:blank";
   var chopurl=window.location.href.split("?");
   var chopurl=chopurl[1].split("&");
   for (var i=0;i<chopurl.length;i++) {
      if (chopurl[i].indexOf("pic")) {
         thesrc=chopurl[i].split("=")[1];
         break;
      }
   }
   document.images['loadImage'].src=thesrc;
   window.resizeTo(document.images['loadImage'].width,document.images['loadImage'].height);
   window.location=thesrc;
}

//-->
</script>
</head>
<body onload="loadPic();">
<div style="visibility:hidden;">
<img name="loadImage" src="" />
</div>
</body>
</html>


Then, of course, call it like this:

<img src="myImage.src" name="myName" onclick="MM_openBrWindow("theHTMLAbove.html?pic="+this.src,this.name,'features');" />
