Right, i've got a website up which contains an iframe (id is main) in which all the pages are loaded. On my parent page, I have an image. What code can I use such that when I click on that image, whatever page is currently in the iframe is opened in a new window.

Thanks in advance. :)

function doOpen(){
var w = window.open(document.getElementById("main").src, "mypopup");
w.focus();
return false;
}
...
<a href="#" onclick="return doOpen()"><img src="open.gif" /></a>

If document.getElementById("main").src doesn't work, try replacing it with:

document.getElementById("main").contenWindow.location.href

Hmmmm...

The code manages to open a new window, but it only opens the default page of the iframe regardless of what page is currently loaded into it.

Did you try the second suggestion that uses contentWindow?

Yeah, the second one gives me an error:

'document.getElementById(...).contenWindow.location' is null or not an object

Yeah, the second one gives me an error:

'document.getElementById(...).contenWindow.location' is null or not an objectThat's because it is contentWindow :)

(glenn made a typo)

The src property returns the src given by default in the code, that is why it always returns the default page, by the way. ContentWindow should work.

Ack, how silly of me. I should have noticed that. :D

Thanks, both of you. :)

btw, is there anyway I can make the new window pop up maximised?

Oopps...Sorry about that. :p

Here's the code to maximize the popup window:

function doOpen(){
var w = window.open(document.getElementById("main").contentWindow.location.href, "mypopup", 'resizable=1, left=0, top=0, width='+screen.availWidth+', height='+screen.availHeight);
w.focus();
return false;
}
