Javascript new window using an image as hyperlink

Posted on 2006-07-10
Last Modified: 2008-01-09
I need to have an image act as a hyperlink and when the user clicks on it, I need a new window to open that I can specify the size and location of the window.  I've tried this but it doesn't work:

<span class="popup""player.aspx?id=49",blank","toolbar=no,width=320,height=290,top=0,left=0")><img src="images/KPC/kidsfest_04.jpg"></span>

Please help!

Try this, using double quotes around the onClick="...":

<span class="popup" onClick="'player.aspx?id=49','blank','toolbar=no,width=320,height=290,top=0,left=0');"><img src="images/KPC/kidsfest_04.jpg"></span>

Ok, I can see that this will be confusing.  How can I make this look and act like a hyperlink (hand appears on rollover)?

That same style code can be put in the <span> if you don't want it in the <img>
<span class="popup" onClick="..." style="cursor: pointer;"><img src="..."></span>
