Hi,

Unable to minimize the pop up window.
It can be closed.

Actual example can be seen:

The script was provided thanks to the user Spookster listed in the forum:

The problem I am encountering is the user is not able to minimize the popup window. If you try, it will automatically come backup.
How can that be adjusted?

The code is:
<!--//
function imageView(imgFile,imgTitle,imgWidth,imgHeight,winPosX,winPosY){
preview = window.open("","","resizable=no,toolbar=no,scrollbars=no,menubar=no,status=no,directories=no,width="+imgWidth+",height="+imgHeight+",left="+winPosX+",top="+winPosY+"");
preview.document.write('<html><head><title>'+imgTitle+' - Click to close - <\/title><\/head>'
+'<body onBlur="self.focus();" marginWidth="0" marginHeight="0" topmargin="0" leftmargin="0">'
+'<center>'
+'<a href="javascript:self.close()">'
+'<img border="0" alt="Image loading please wait...." src="'+imgFile+'" width="'+imgWidth+'" height="'+imgHeight+'">'
+'<\/a><\/center>'
+'<\/body><\/html>');
preview.document.close();
}
//-->
</script>


Thanks,

Felix

You need to change where it says resizable=no to resizable=yes

Actually if you do not want the popup window to retain focus until it is closed then you need to remove this part:

onBlur="self.focus();"

I set this up so that the popup image would always be in front until it is closed.

Hi _Aerospace_Eng_...

I made the change, uploaded and tested.

The window continues bouncing back up when ever the user tries minimizing it.

Hi Spookster,

Removed the >> onBlur="self.focus();"

It resolved the minimizing problem.

However, the image is not longer occupying the whole window as it did before. How can I keep some of those parameters (and which one) to have the image fill the entire window?

Thanks

put back everything except the onBlur part.

Hey Spookster...

I just re-did it... I had removed the entire line including the body parameters... I see now...it makes sense. So I can actually manipulate the body within the pop up window... Cool

It works perfectly now...Kudos to you... Thank you, thank you...
