Javascript Popup Opens in Background in .NET Application

Hi!

For several years our .NET application has opened a popup in the foreground every time. I use:

Page.ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(GetType(String), "Popup", "window.open('STUDLogList.aspx','pop','width=900,height=450,top=312,left=190,scrollbars=1');", True)

Lately the popup has started to open in the background without any change in code. Do you have any suggestions to help this?

Searching Google I can see at lot of people have exactly the same problem and a lot of suggestions to help it but I cannot make it work.

Is this behavior occurring on a specific browser or on all?

My company uses Internet Explorer but I have downloaded Chrome and here it doesn't work at all - no popup is shown.

I have found a solution!

Insert a Javascript function like this:

<script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">
    function PopupOpen()
{
    window.open('YourFile.aspx', '_blank', 'width=900,height=450,top=312,left=190,scrollbars=1')
}
</script>

and call the popup like this:

Dim csname1 As [String] = "PopupScript"
            Dim cstype As Type = Me.[GetType]()

            ' Get a ClientScriptManager reference from the Page class.  
            Dim cs As ClientScriptManager = Page.ClientScript

            ' Check to see if the startup script is already registered.  
            If Not cs.IsStartupScriptRegistered(cstype, csname1) Then
                Dim cstext1 As New StringBuilder()
                cstext1.Append("<script type=text/javascript> ")
                cstext1.Append("window.attachEvent('onload',PopupOpen) </script>")
                cs.RegisterStartupScript(cstype, csname1, cstext1.ToString())
            End If

This ensures that the popup code is the LAST to run. I have checked the solution and it works perfect for me.
