The window.open method accepts the following parameters:

window.open(URL ,name,specs,rep lace)
  • URL: Specifies the URL of the page to open
  • name: Specifies the target attribute or the name of the window
  • specs: Is an optional, comma-separated list of items that specify how the child window should be displayed.

It looks as if you are calling the method properly and that you are providing the correct values as parameters to the method....so long as the URL you are providing is valid.

Check that your dirLevel contains a valid URL.

1. check the error frm firefox "error console"
2. you are looks like missing ";" semicolon after end of window.open line

window.open(dir Level+"radio.ht ml", "Radio", "status=1, height=120, width=450, resizable=0, top=20, left=20")
3. add a alert (dirLevel); inside the function to check that you are passing right directory link
4. if still the problem then add return false after window.open line
return false;

Found out what it was, you wouldn't have gotten it as i just realised i posted the wrong code, it was being cause by a space in the name attribute, i replaced the space with and underscore and now its working fine.

Inside a html page (more precicesly inside a JSP page) I defined a button. When the user clicks this button a second browser window should pop up und load the passed URL.

After considerable googling - I mean searching with Google(r) - I could not find javascript on a button or <a href=... to close a window in the latest versions of IE and FireFox. There seemed to be two techniques for earlier versions. But the window.opener='' ;window.close(); and the window.open('','_parent','') ;window.close(); techniques do not work for me. I.e., I still get confirmation message

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,...
