Hi,

I need to open a new window on click of a menu item and its using navigateurl as mentioned below.

I tried this it opens a new new tab instead of a new window, I just want a new window and current page need not to be updated, what other things i can do.

  protected void navMenu_MenuItemDataBound(object sender, MenuEventArgs e)
    {

        //webhelp changes
        if (e.Item.NavigateUrl.Contains("PageURL=MenuWebHelp"))
        {
            string PopupWindowScript = @"javascript:window.open('/Medicare/Medicare/Help/Help.aspx?PageURL=', 'HelpDocs', 'top=50,left=50,width=800,height=800,location=no, status=no, menubar=no, scrollbars=no, resizable=yes,').focus();";
           e.Item.NavigateUrl = PopupWindowScript;
                       e.Item.Target = "_blank";
           
           
        }

        if (e.Item.NavigateUrl.Contains("#"))
        {
            e.Item.NavigateUrl = "";
        }
    }

whatever the settings browser has, the new page should display in new window rather than new tab, what can i do this to make it default and compulsory behaviour

You cannot compel anything if the user has decided they do not want popups it is their right to do so. They own the browser, not you.  If you want to display another page then you might want to use an iframe

Conventionally, when a member finds their own solution, they post it.  Otherwise the question is just a bit of empty trash in the database that is no help for anyone finding it in a search.
