View Full Version : Can't popup in new window instead of tab.

03-23-2009, 04:07 PM
I'm trying to make it so that a clicked link will open a Flash movie
into its own set size window. But in IE8 (and IE8 emulating IE7) it
only opens up in a new tab, with the movie filling the entire window's
Here's the link I'm trying:

<Script Language="JavaScript">
function load() {
var load = window.open('http://www.mydomain.com/flash/
twitter_tutorial.swf','','scrollbars=no,menubar=no,fullscreen=0,height=400,width=550,resizable=no,to olbar=no,location=no,status=no,zoominherit=0 ');

// -->
Open Flash tutorial in a separate window by <a href="javascript:load
()">clicking here</a>.
It works fine in Firefox and Google Chrome. But obviously, I need it
to work in IE!
Any advice?

try using _blank for the window name instead of no name at all.

Thanks for replying! :)
Yeah, tried that--still just opens in a new tab and fills the page vs. a new defined size window.

Hmm, drat. Was hoping this wouldn't be that difficult of an issue. Maybe it's just not possible with IE7 & 8? That would suck for many reasons.
