How Do I Specify the Size of a Browser Window?

I want a Flash Video on our site to open in a separate, small window. How can I specify the size of the browser window in DW8?

Is this something that I'd have to do in the actual page, or in the page from which the video is linked?

Thx.

Thank you for your reply.

Is there a way to make the Javascript link work if the HTML remains within the <body> and the </body> tags?

If not, is there a way that the targeted page can contain its own parameters for the window dimensions?

Thx
The only way it will work is if the anchor tag remains between the body and body tags.  There's just no other way for it to be.  Your going to see javascript in the head of your document, and in the body.

Your intention is to allow someone to click a link, that pops-up a fixed window with your flash.  My initial response states, highlight your link (<a>) and then proceed with the instructions, that will ensure that your pop-up function is associated to the link you want to apply the functionality too.

Our web site is set up so that page content is contained between the <body> and </body> tags. Everything outside of that is pre-set for each page. Javascript in the head of a document will not work.

Does this mean that I am out of luck?
No, you can take the same <script> function and add it just above the hyperlink in the body of your html.  It will just load when that code is read instead of in the head.
Example:

This part is usually in the head:
<script type="text/JavaScript">
<!--
function MM_openBrWindow(theURL,winName,features) { //v2.0
  window.open(theURL,winName,features);
}
//-->
</script>

Just place it above your link.
<script type="text/JavaScript">
<!--
function MM_openBrWindow(theURL,winName,features) { //v2.0
  window.open(theURL,winName,features);
}
//-->
</script>
<a href="javascript:;" onclick="MM_openBrWindow('http://www.cnn.com/','test','width=500,height=500')">Test Pop-Up</a>
</div>

Sorry Try this one:
<a  href="#" onClick="javascript:window.open('Default.aspx','myWindow','width=200,height=200');">Test</a>
stick this at the bottom of the page before the end body tag...

<script type="text/javascript">

self.resizeTo(1024, 768)

</script>

I don't remember what happened. I think I posted this a year-and-a-half ago. For some reason, it didn't work, since I didn't wind up closing the question.

I just asked that this be deleted, since I keep getting the e-mails that say "You Have Open Questions."
Right, there's actually a programmatic flow to the system.  It has to be in place in order for it to be effective.  

You may have to choose who best supported you or leave it to the moderators to distribute points as they see fit.

-Good luck!
