View Full Version : external openup file

If I have the .js script for openup as an external file (instead of inserting it b/w </head> and <body>), how will I have to replace:

<a href="javascript:openup('http://www.newsite.com/','new')">Link</a>

Shouldn't what you have there work. As long as the openup() function is correct in your external file, you should have no problem with what you are currently using.

I understand.

But how am I going to refer to the external file?

ssskaya can we see your function.

Do you mean how can you access the window that the website is opened up in?

well,.. what I mean is:

I have the external .js file that has the openup script.

As for the .html page, in which I will insert the openup command, I believe what I have above will not be enough since it does not have anything that refers to the external file.

For example, if it was an external date script called date.js, I would refer to it with a script like: <script src="www.mywebsite.com/date.js"></script>

This script would show the path to the external file.

How about this openup function?

As you said, you need to refer to the .js file in your html pages.

<script type="text/javascript" src="pathToJSfile.js"></script>

And then you can call any method or global variables in that js in your html pages.

Just make sure the .js file does not contain <script></script> tags.
