Hi experts,

<xsl:when test="@ContentType='Process'">
<a href="http://company.net/sites/sg/Forms/DispForm.aspx?ID={@ID}&amp;Source=http://.company.net/sites/sg/Forms/AllItems.aspx" target="_blank">
<xsl:value-of select="@FileLeafRef"/>
</a>
 </xsl:when>

However the window appears small. How do I ensure the window is max size- What do I need to add to the a href?

Hello,

forcing a new window to maximise is not a good idea. Most people would be quite cross if the control of the new window size was overridden. With current monitor sizes and screen resolutions, a maximised window often makes it harder to digest the content.

Having said that, it is possible. You need some javascript in the file and then include a call to that js function in the link.

There are two examples in this question (the accepted solutions)

Saw it. would it be possible to put the <script> tag in the xsl editor?

How do i integrate it into the onclick line without the <script> tag? eg:

..href="http://company.net/sites/sg/Forms/DispForm.aspx?ID={@ID}&amp;Source=http://.company.net/sites/sg/Forms/AllItems.aspx"

onClick="return !window.open(this.href,this.target,'width=1024,height=250')"

target="_blank">

Is this fine?

You can put the script anywhere in the page, for example just above the link tag.

<xsl:when test="@ContentType='Process'">
						<script>
						  function winpop(url){
						  var w = screen.width;
    						var h = screen.height;
						    popup = window.open(url,&apos;popup&apos;,&apos;screenX=0,screenY=0,left=0,top=0,width=&apos;+w+&apos;,height=&apos;+h);
							  }
						</script>
						<a href="http://company.net/sites/sg/Forms/DispForm.aspx?ID={@ID}&amp;Source=http://.company.net/sites/sg/Forms/AllItems.aspx" onClick="winpop(this.href);return false;">
							<xsl:value-of select="@FileLeafRef"/>
						</a>
					</xsl:when>

You don't.

Because you don't know what they are. Each user can have a different screen resolution.

Javascript will calculate them. The script works as is. I copied it from my test site.
