I have asp:hyperlink in my webpage. Onclick I would like to open this in a new window instead of redirecting in the same browser.
Basically I would like to have the same effect as having an input button and on click calling the attached javascript function showwindow(). Please suggest how can I call this javascript function from the click of the asp:hyperlink. should I rather use any other html control . Please help thanks

<asp:HyperLink ID="hlPrintCart" NavigateUrl="/showwindow.aspx" runat="server">Print page</asp:HyperLink>      
function ShowWindow()
                        {
                        var h = 500;
                        var w = 600;        
                        PackingSlipPopUp = window.open("showwindow.aspx","_blank","scrollbars=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,location=no,status=no,width=" + w + ",height=" + h + ",top= " + ((screen.height - h) / 5) + ",left=" + ((screen.width - w) / 2));
                        PackingSlipPopUp.focus();
                        }

vb code:
hlPrintCart.attributes.add("onClick","ShowWindow()");

or, why do you need server control for this? use simple <a> element

<a href="#" onClick="ShowWindow()">Print page</a>

target="_blank" is not he wants I guess:

if you look at this code

window.open("showwindow.aspx","_blank","scrollbars=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,location=no,status=no,width=" + w + ",height=" + h + ",top= " + ((screen.height - h) / 5) + ",left=" + ((screen.width - w) / 2));

he wants to open it in a NICE window, not in a new window :) this is what I get... and thats why he has that open function...
