    open window in new tab

    In Mozilla, NS, Firefox, ect.. there is the option to 'open page in new tab'

    I was wondering if there was any way to force this upon the user like one would force a page to open in a new window.

    I do not think there is a target="_tab" option (or one like that)??

    does anyone know anything about this or has anyone tried it before?


    I realize this would not work in IE and I am prepared to handle that, but for browsers that do support tabs i would like to force a new tab if possible.
    public string ConjunctionJunction(string words, string phrases, string clauses)
    {
    return (String)(words + phrases + clauses);
    }
    <--- Was I Helpfull? Let me know ---<

    No, I don't think so.
    And you can't force in a new window, either.
    I have Firefox set to open everything in a tab, whether you wanted a window or not. All window.open commands are targeted to a new tab instead.

    I love Firefox.

    If this post contains any code, I may or may not have tested it. It's probably just example code, so no getting knickers in a bunch over a typo, OK? If it doesn't have basic error checking in it, such as object detection or checking if objects are null before using them, put that in there. I'm giving examples, not typing up your whole app for you. You run code at your own risk.
