Window.Open Function

I have a function that I call from an HTML page to open a pop-up
window. I would like to make the height and width as parameters but I
jeep getting an "Object Expected" javascript error. I am not a js guru
so I could use a little help. Here si my function:

<script language=javasc ript>
function popup(filename)
{
var
newWin=window.o pen(filename,'d efault','menuba r=no,toolbar=no ,location=no,di rectories=no,st atus=yes,scroll bars=yes,resiza ble=yes,hotkeys =no,width=400,h eight=150');
newWin.focus();
}
</script>

HTML function call = onClick='popup( 'service.asp')

The above works fine.

I have tried this but get the error mentioned above:

<script language=javasc ript>
function popup(filename, p_height, p_width)
{
var
newWin=window.o pen(filename,'d efault','menuba r=no,toolbar=no ,location=no,di rectories=no,st atus=yes,scroll bars=yes,resiza ble=yes,hotkeys =no,width='+p_w idth+',height=' +p_height+');
newWin.focus();
}
</script>

HTML function call = onClick='popup( 'service.asp',5 00,500)

I assume my syntax is off is some way but I do not know how? Again, all
I want to do is make the height and width as parameters of the function
as I do with the filename.

newWin.focus();
At the end where you have:

....height='+p_ height+');

You have an unterminated string. It should end as follows:

....height=' + p_height);
}
</script>

HTML function call = onClick='popup( 'service.asp',5 00,500)

Thank you very much. That worked out great for me. I knew it had to be
my syntax.

I am trying to allow a user to view a PDF in a new window. I currently have this working using the following: <a href="./pdf.do?parameter=01121980" target="top"><b>pdf</b></a> The problem with the above solution is the back/forward buttons and all the other browser options. Because of this, I am trying to get the following solution to work: <a href="#" onclick="popUp('./pdf.do?parameter=01121980')"><b>pdf</b></a>

With the body tag calling out 'window onload', a function with a 'window.open' fails at the 'window.open' line. If I cut out the body tag, the function executes as normal. At first I thought it was the entire function failing, but I tested with alerts and found that it was only the 'window.open' that fails to execute. The function is being called by a link, and I suspected some problem with the body alink/vlink but after cutting that out...

Hello, I am using the following javascript code to open a new window. Somehow, IE always opens a new window. It doesn't open target url in the window name given. All i want is, if there is a window "MyWin" already open, then the main window should load the target url in "MyWin" and not open a new window again.

But, if it's not open, I don't want to open it . . . using window.open will open it if it doesn't exist, even if the url in that open is null (the window is then empty -- but it's open). The situation is: A main window opens child windows one at a time as the user requests, each with its own name. The user may click in any child window or the main window to open a summary window, which has a name all windows know. I want to get that...

Hello, I am trying to open a window containing an image and I would like the image to be flush against the window -- i.e. have no padding or border. Can I make this happen with a single call to a window.open function? I would prefer not to create a separate HTML page. So far all I have is the basic var cwin = window.open('images/KJV-THANKS.gif', 'Thanks', 'width=243,height=420,'); cwin.focus();

I have a main webpage that has a list of records, each with a link to a window.open function call. As an example, a page that opens is editrecord.aspx?RecordID=34, and another is editrecord.aspx?RecordID=52. If the user starts changing the contents of the opened window, and then leaves it open and goes back to the main page, refreshes the list, and clicks on the same record link again, it reloads the contents of the page the user had...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
