I am using javascript in asp.net to pop up window. thank you in advance, for your fabulous solution!



<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="Index.aspx.cs" Inherits="Index"  %>

<%@ Register Assembly="FlashControl" Namespace="Bewise.Web.UI.WebControls" TagPrefix="Bewise" %>

<!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 runat="server">

    <title>Untitled Page</title>

<script language="javascript">    

    function myfunc(){

window.open("http://localhost/consumerpalinc/otters/contactme.aspx","popup","width=500,height=300,scrollbars,resizable;newWindow.focus(); void(0);");

I did get some clarity from article: http://javascript.about.com/library/blmodal.htm
Simply stated javascript can only do this in two browsers, internet explorer or firefox.

function modalWin() {
if (window.showModalDialog) {
window.showModalDialog("xpopupex.htm","name",
"dialogWidth:255px;dialogHeight:250px");
} else {
window.open('xpopupex.htm','name',
'height=255,width=250,toolbar=no,directories=no,status=no,menubar=no,scrollbars=no,resizable=no ,modal=yes');
}
}

thank you. now if someone knows how to make windows modal also in opera, safari, etc. then please share.

example, it works on ie6,ff3, safari. But not on opera
main.html
 

<script type="text/javascript">

function openModal(){

var returnVal = window.showModalDialog('showModalDialog.html');

alert("returnVal : " + returnVal);

window.location.href=returnVal;

}

</script>

<a href="#" onclick="openModal();">openModal()</a>
 

======================================================================================
 

showModalDialog.html
 

<html>

<head>

<title>Modal Dialog</title>

</head>

      <body >

            <a href="http://www.google.com"  onmousedown="window.returnValue = this.href;window.close();;">Click here</a>

      </body>

</html>

Open in new window
