Opening Another Window in Page Load

Hi Experts,

How can I open another window from my body onLoad? I am not too concern about if the browser will allow it, etc because this is a application for internal use.

I have tried:

<body onLoad=""getPDF.php" target="_blank");">

Open in new window

and I have tried
    <body onLoad="self.location("getPDF.php" target="_blank");">

Open in new window

Thank you

You should modify "onLoad" to "onload", remove "target=" and add a comma between both parameters:
<body onload=""getPDF.php", "_blank");">

Open in new window

This works for me
<!doctype html>
Loading ...
<script type="text/javascript">
window.onload = function() {"test.pdf", "_blank");

Open in new window
