Hi all,

I am not sure where i should have posted this question but as javascript is the norm for all queries, so i have posted it here.

I have a link that is controlled with html and css but upon a link click i want it to open in a new tab/window, rather than it closing my page to display the new page.

Please help - i love javascript but i am a junior.:confused:

I'm sorry, but to my knowledge this is impossible! It should be coming out soon, but tabbed browsing is up to the browser not the markup. You could force open a window using this:


<a href="http://www.yourlink.com" target="_blank">But if you just want to open it in a new tab rather than it doing it automatically. Right click the hyperlink and click 'Open in new tab'.

Thanks

(small edit: This thread doesn't belong here)Technically it can belong here in that the target attribute isn't allowed with certain doctypes, but can be assigned with JavaScript.


<a href="http://www.yourlink.com" id="myLink">

<script type='text/javascript'>
doccument.getElementById('myLink').target='_blank';
</script>
