hello - im new to popups and im trying to get this pop up method to work.

what im trying to accomplish is this:

1. have parent page with href link to popup
2. when popup opens it goes to middle of screen
3. when you click on a link in the popup it will take you to the selected page from the parent window of the popup.

i.e. when you click on popup form opens page in center of screen then shows you a list of other href links to choose from. so when you choose the link in the popup window the popup window should close and goto the requested page in the original window.

here the code that i have so far:

javascript popup
<script type="text/javascript">
<!--
function popup(url) 
{
 params  = 'width='+screen.width;
 params += ', height='+screen.height;
 params += ', top=0, left=0'
 params += ', fullscreen=yes';

 newwin=window.open(url,'windowname4', params);
 if (window.focus) {newwin.focus()}
 return false;
}
// -->
</script>

Open in new window


the href onclick
<p align="center"><a href="lang/de/index.php" title="German"  onclick="popup('popup.html')" />Deutsch</a>

Open in new window




thanks in advance for your help!

Ok, you can achieve this more easily as of Jquery made this simple for you.

1.  Just add the jquery and Jquery UI js reference to your page head section.
   <link href="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jqueryui/1.8/themes/base/jquery-ui.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"/>
  <script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.5/jquery.min.js"></script>
  <script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jqueryui/1.8/jquery-ui.min.js"></script>
       
2. Create a link, which will be responsible to show the popup.
   <a id="ShowPopUp" href ="#"> Show Links </a>

3.  Create the Div with the following markup
    <div id="divPopUp" style="display:none;">
        <a href="xyz.html">Link 1</a>
        <a href="xyz.html">Link 2</a>
        <a href="xyz.html">Link 3</a>
     </div>  
 
4. Now write the code something like below
   $(function() {
           $("#ShowPopUp").click(function() {
                   $("#divPopUp").dialog({width:600,height:500,modal: true});
          });
         $("#divPopUp a").click(function() {
                     window.location.href =$(this).attr("href");  
         });
});

Hope this will solve your problem.
