    Need to collect data from a pop-up window

    Hi everyone.
    I am new to coding please help me out.

    I have been assigned a project in which I need to bring up a pop-up window with a question (y/n format.)
    I need to collect the answers from the pop up, also depending on the answer(y/n) I need to post another question on the pop-up window.

    One more condition is that the pop-up browser should come up only after a person has browsed/opened the web-page for more than 30 sec.

    I am totally new to world of coding and this very first assignment is killing me.


    Any help/suggestions would be welcome.
    Thanks a ton in advance.

    thanks for the link shared.
    Can you please help me with the part of data collection from the pop-up and the
    timing constraint?(Pop up should come only after 30 sec of browsing a page).

    Popups that appear automatically (e.g, after 30 seconds of browsing a page) will almost inevitably be BLOCKED by all modern popup blockers.

    So you do *NOT* want to use a popup. Period. You want to use a "popon". That is, a <div> that appears on top of the rest of the page.

    Vic's script is wonderful, but it's probably about 10 times more complex than you possibly need.

    Big question: You say you are supposed to "collect" the answer(s) from the popup/popon. What are you supposed to do with the collected answers? If you don't use some kind of server-side coding (PHP/ASP/JSP/etc.), then the only place they can "collect" is in the actual user's machine, which is pretty much useless.
    Be yourself. No one else is as qualified.
