How to allow a pop-up to open when a pop-up is blocked?

Hello All,

Do I have a way to pop-up a window, though the pop-up of the browser setting is set to block. Either using Javascript or PHP. If so, please let me know.

Thanks,
~Sweety

Same answer as in the PHP forum. Why do you think people want to block pop-ups? Because they don't want to see them! And you try to sneakily bypass people's settings. To me that is an unallowed infringement of their privacy.

that is exactly right ... :) anyway: in case you desperatly need that popup you could create a section (div) in your current page and set the innerHTML (content) of that div with javascript. you cannot AND shouldn't override the users blocker-preferences ... but you can adapt your application to behave the way you need.

kind regards
