if you want a resized pop up, sorry, you CAN'T do it without javascript, if you want open a pop up generally, it can be done by set the hyperlink's target to "blank", like:

<a href="test.asp" target="_blank">Test</a>

This is what I use currently
Window.open(url, name, "toolbar=0,location=0,directories=0,status=yes,menubar=no,scrollbars=1,resizable=yes,width, height);

But it won't work when the Javascript is disabled . Also target =_blank opens a new window with all the toolbar which I don't want ..

yup, and i think that's no perfect solutions here.. javascript must be enabled if you want to resize the pop up window.

If someone is not using Javascript, then you can't control the behaviour of their browser. Which is probably why that person has disabled Javascript. Many people hate pop-ups, pop-unders, resized content windows, etc. You'll have to accept that you cannot get the result you want for visitors who are not allowing Javascript to run.

Do you really need to use a pop-up? Even for the people who have Javascript enabled, unwanted pop-ups are the sort of thing that persuade visitors to avoid a site. Even the triggered pop-ups are annoying if the new content could have been opened in the same window without consequence. These days people are becoming very capable of opening new content in a fresh window or tab using the right-mouse context menu.

I'm afraid, what you want and what you're going to get without JS enabled are two very different things. The nearest to what you want is just a plain target="_blank" popup.

Here's a solution that degrades gracefully. It will open a clean popup if javascript is enabled, and a normal new browser window if javascript is disabled.

<a href="test.asp" target="_blank" onclick="window.open('test.asp', 'somename', "toolbar=0,location=0,directories=0,status=yes,menubar=no,scrollbars=1,resizable=yes,width, height); return false;"
>Test</a>

Notice the return false; -statement in onclick, it prevents the normal link action from happening (opening new window) after the javascript is executed.

Basilisci's suggestion is probably the very closest you're going to get.

Thanx Basilisci ! Though I wish there was a way to get the pop up window in ASP !
