User A Popup Message Without Reload Of Main Browser Window?
Mar 15, 2011
I'm looking for nice solution to handle file downloads. The problem with classic link in <a href="file"> is that in case of missing file, the main browser window is reloaded with 404 error, but I'd like to present to user a popup message without reload of main browser window.
I have the code below in my popup window which currently brings up a blank page in the background as the main window. Instead I want the popup to come up but the original page I left is in the background as the main window. Does anyone know how I can do that with the code I currently have.
I'm using window.showModalDialog but having an issue trying to set the parent window(main browser). I open modal window A which is then opens modal window B, top of modal window B onload I do window.opener.close()". My issue now is when i'm finished with B I set parent window(main browser) to a new url with window.opener.location. So my problem is modal window A the parent has been closed so window.opener.location will not work.
I would like to force a page reload whenever the browser is minimizedmaximized or is in any other way changed size. How can I do this?
I am very new at this - and have found code everywhere for pop ups and popunders, but I need both in the same place. So - I am on a main page with a link. If the user clicks the link they get a popup window (it is a specific url). When the user exits out of the popup, I want the popunder to go under the main window they were looking at (not the popup window)
If I am in my main window, I have an href link to click for the popup.html window. This works fine, and I tried to put the code into the popup.html to load the popunder upon exit. What a disaster. It loads on TOP of the main window because of course it is trying to popunder the popup.
I have a popup window that comes up when a user doesn't have access to a certain page within my site. The problem is when a user clicks on something the popup window comes up but the bigger sized window of that popup comes up in the background as well. I am trying to have my popup window come up while the original page I clicked from is still focused/seen in the background. This is the code I currently am using, can anyone help me with what I am missing. I have a back button but I won't need that if I want to maintain the original page in the background. Instead I will use a close button.
I am building a CMS and will have an Image browser built with it. When articles are added the will be able to open up the image browser when they find the image they want to insert I would like to send it(and ID from my database) into that textarea where the article is in(in the main window). So basically sending a value from popup to the main window(textarea). Is there a way i can do it.
I'm having a problem rewriting a window with a popup I made. I'm using Debian Woody with Mozilla 1.0. I can make the popups, but I cannot rewrite the original window with the new information gathered from the popup. Can someone please make some suggestions. I've got most of my information from an old copy of the Rhino book.
I have a simple page on my freebie account site that opens a popup window running index.asp on another site of mine. The code on the freebie hosted server is below. What I'd like to do is have the freebie hosted page shut down once it's opened up the child window.
I have two PHP scripts. The popup script (calendar.php) is linked from the main navigation of the website. When it is clicked, the calendar popups up and the dates are linked. For example; the 24th July 2004 would read: events.php?day=24&month=7&year=2004
However, I require this information to be passed back to the MAIN window so that it can be displayed in a full screen.
Can somebody tell me how I can make a popup window appear behind the main browser window by modifying the script below to do this? I would like it so the popup will load but they won't see it until they close the main window.
So I have a webpage listing a bunch of book titles. I have coded a popup message with the book summary to appear when the title is clicked on. There is one problem. After the viewer reads a summary he or she clicks ok on the popup message, and then the window automatically scrolls back to the top. This will be a nuisance; if the user is half way or close to the end of the list, he or she would have to keep scrolling back down to his or her spot after reading the book summary.
Does anyone know how it would be possible to create bar at the bottom of the browser window that doesn't reload when you navigate thru the site. A good example is the chatbox that Facebook has. When you click links throughout the site the chat box is constant and doesn't reload.
In Firefox I can resize the window that is created, but in IE I can't. Here is the code I am using: var generator=window.open('','name','height=500,width= 675,resizeable=1,toolbar=0,menubar=0,scrollbars=1' );
I also tried it with 'no' and 'yes' instead of Ɔ' and Ƈ'.
I see the symbol in the window that I can click and drag, but, when I do click and drag, nothing happens.
I guess this case applies to both popup windows opened by window.open() and by showModalWindow().
I have two buttons in popup window, "Cancel" and "Save". If the user clicks either button, there is a "process" at parent window before close() at popup being called. The problem now is, if the user click the "X" sign at top right corner of that popup window, how to trigger the "process"?
I think I can do nothing in popup window since the closure is unexpected programmatically. Can I put some kind of listener in parent window to detect if popup is closed?
I've copied and customized a script to display a css popup in my little website. The script should display a popup in the middle of the browser window, graying out the background, Everything seems to work fine except that at the end of the script, the page is displayed from the top. This means that if you click on the popup link from a position down in the page, you'll miss it because you will be taken to the top of the page, where you can't see it.
This is the HTML and CSS code:
And the js:
I've been debugging with alert boxes and everything seems to be fine until the script ends execution. Then the user is brought again at the top of the page...
In my final site the only thing I would like to show in the popup is a Flash movie.
Do you know any workaround? I would even implement a completely different solution if I knew which...
By the way: At this stage I am using Chrome but I would like my solution to work in any browser, that will the next issue.
