Hi,

For only external link you can use target='_blank'.

But for a forced popup use the attached function.

// external link
<a href='http://www.google.com/' target='_blank'>Google</a>
 
//forced popup
 
function popup(url,w,h)
{
window.open(url,'','toolbar=no,location=no,directories=no,status=no,menubar=no,scrollbars=yes,resizable=no,copyhistory=no,width='+w+',height='+h+',screenX=300,screenY=350,top=350,left=300');
}

i want to associate the onClick event with the pop up window here is the scenario :
this is the external link i want to promote diasfm.com . whenever user click on the main page of my website the promotion link should pop up actually they are not clicking on the promotion link. it's like cliking on any part of the page will execute the pop up .

Hi,

You can try something like this. what you need is to add your onClick event on that tag that is wrapping your complete body of the webpage.

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
<title>Popup Test</title>
<script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">
 
function popMarket(url){
	window.open(url);
}
</script>
</head>
 
<body>
<div onclick="popMarket('http://www.google.com')">
<table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
  <tr>
    <td height="100">Header</td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td height="400">Body</td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td height="100">footer</td>
  </tr>
</table>
</div>
</body>
</html>
