View Full Version : focus popup onload

I want to load a popup - as chromeless as I can get it - centre screen.

This will almost do it, but regardless of my attempt to force focus, it stays behind the loader.

If I could get rid of the loader that would be nice, but I'm thinking that is impossible. Still, all I need for now is for the popup to come to the front.


<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
<script LANGUAGE="javascript">
function popUp(URL,popW,popH) {
var topPos = (screen.availHeight-popH)/2, leftPos = (screen.availWidth-popW)/2;
mywin=window.open(URL,'popup','resizable=no, toolbar=no, location=no, status=no, scrollbars=no, menubar=no, titlebar=no, width=' + popW + ',height=' + popH + ',left=' + leftPos + ',top=' + topPos + ',screenX=' + leftPos + ',screenY=' + topPos);''
// -->


<body onload="javascript:popUp('mypopup.html',700,450)">

Any ideas as to what I'm doing incorrectly?

it doesnt make sense to me that the pop up isn't in front. unless you have something in the loader window that is drawing focus back to it. when a popup is created, it has focus by default. it should always be on top unless explicitly told not to (i.e. drawing focus to main window or blur() on pop up. )

do you have any added software/plugins that might push pop-ups to the back? because the code you provided pops the window up in front and it keeps focus for me.

Something is very strange. If I upload the pages to the web and load page1.html, it all works as expected.

But if I do the same thing offline, page1.html still has focus.

Maybe I should reinstall IE7.
