View Full Version : New window help
12-26-2002, 02:22 AM
I really want to be able to open up a new window when a link is clicked on.
However I would like the window to be centered [not required] and be the size of the contents within it.
Is this possible?

<!doctype html public "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Strict//EN"
function centerWindow(mySizeX, mySizeY, url)
// Make sure the screen height and width are greater than the window's height and width
var top = (screen.height > mySizeY) ? (screen.height - mySizeY) / 2 : 0;
var left = (screen.width > mySizeX) ? (screen.width - mySizeX) / 2 : 0;
window.open(url, "_blank", "screenX=" + left + ",screenY=" + top + ",width=" + mySizeX + ",height=" + mySizeY);

Does that make the window 500 x 500?
If it does I don't want that - I want the window to be the same size as the contents within it.

What size is the content within it?

Sorry if I came across as rude - I'm a little *yawns* tired :)
Well, to be honest, the size will vary.
I'm hoping someone can help me and I'm surprised no-one has thought of this or used it lol o.O

What would "same size as the contents" mean? A window of any size could fit all the contents. Do u mean to say that you dont want any scroll bars but still be able to see the entire contents in the window?

In a way yes - I dont want a scrollbar or a toolbar or anything but that's not the problem.
For example, say the contents take up half of the screen, the window will also be half a screen long with no excess spaces.
If you're still not sure, I'll happily provide a sceencap.

Can't you do the site the way 99.999% of other people do it, by making the content fit the window? Don't think I'd like a pop-up resizing itself with every page loaded in it...
You better show what you mean, coz it looks like you're confusing a lot of ppl :p

lol I thought I was O:-).
This (http://www.charmed-source.com/screenies/ss.png) is what I'd like it too look like.
The size will not change considerably, but it's just a design factor and I thought they'd look better in their own window.
This is what I don't want to look like:
Obviously it won't have the staus bar, it'll be just like in the previous screenshot.
Hope that's clarified it a bit!
