View Full Version : help needed to modify the script

Could anyone please help me modify the script?

I have attached a text file of the code I'm using to display a popup window of an image. Is it possible to give a border to the image & some space around the image?

Thank you

Change this line:



writeln('<html><head><title>Loading...</title><style>body{margin:2px;}\nimg{border:1px solid red}</style>');

Change the values accordingly.

Ok, here is the code, also attached is a printscreen img of the page with the popup opened.

Script: Auto-Sizing Image Popup Window

Functions: Use this script to launch a popup window that
automatically loads an image and resizes itself
to fit neatly around that image. The script also
places a title you set in the titlebar of the
popup window. Any number of images can be launched
from a single instance of the script.

Browsers: NS6-7 & IE4 and later
[Degrades functionally in NS4]

Inserting the JavaScript <script> In Your Page

Insert the following script in the <head>...</head> part
of your page. Take special care not to break any of the lines;
they must be exactly as shown.

Set the variables as per the instructions in the script.


// Script Source: CodeLifter.com
// Copyright 2003
// Do not remove this notice.

// ===============================

// Set the horizontal and vertical position for the popup

PositionX = 0;
PositionY = 0;

// Set these value approximately 20 pixels greater than the
// size of the largest image to be used (needed for Netscape)

defaultWidth = 800;
defaultHeight = 700;

// Set autoclose true to have the window close automatically
// Set autoclose false to allow multiple popup windows

var AutoClose = true;

// Do not edit below this line...
// ================================
if (parseInt(navigator.appVersion.charAt(0))>=4){
var isNN=(navigator.appName=="Netscape")?1:0;
var isIE=(navigator.appName.indexOf("Microsoft")!=-1)?1:0;}
var optNN='scrollbars=no,width='+defaultWidth+',height='+defaultHeight+',left='+PositionX+',top='+Positi onY;
var optIE='scrollbars=no,width=150,height=100,left='+PositionX+',top='+PositionY;
function popImage(imageURL,imageTitle){
if (isNN){imgWin=window.open('about:blank','',optNN);}
if (isIE){imgWin=window.open('about:blank','',optIE);}
with (imgWin.document){
writeln('<html><head><title>Loading...</title><style>body{margin:5px;}\nimg{border:2px solid black}</style>');writeln('<sc'+'ript>');
writeln('var isNN,isIE;');writeln('if (parseInt(navigator.appVersion.charAt(0))>=4){');
writeln('function reSizeToImage(){');writeln('if (isIE){');writeln('window.resizeTo(100,100);');
writeln('window.resizeTo(width,height);}');writeln('if (isNN){');
writeln('function doTitle(){document.title="'+imageTitle+'";}');writeln('</sc'+'ript>');
if (!AutoClose) writeln('</head><body bgcolor=000000 scroll="no" onload="reSizeToImage();doTitle();self.focus()">')
else writeln('</head><body bgcolor=000000 scroll="no" onload="reSizeToImage();doTitle();self.focus()" onblur="self.close()">');
writeln('<img name="George" src='+imageURL+' style="display:block"></body></html>');



Calling the Image Popup from Links in Your Page

This is the form of the function:


Use the relative or absolute path of the image where we show
url_of_image. This is the url of the image you wish to show
in the auto-sizing popup window.

Use any text you wish where we show title_of_image. This is
the title that will appear in the titlebar of the popup. (Note:
do not use single- or double-quotes within a title.)

Caution: Be careful to place both values within quotes.
See the samples below.

Example 1: Launching from a text link

<a href="javascript:popImage('http://SomeSite.com/SomeImage.gif','Some Title')">
Click Here

Example 2: Launching from an image link

<a href="javascript:popImage('http://SomeSite.com/SomeImage.gif','Some Title')">
<img src="YourImage.gif" border="0">

Example 3: Launching from a form button

<input type="button" value="Click Here" onClick="popImage('SomeImage.gif','Some Title')">

The window size is not enough because you add the border and margin.
You should see the margin for the right and bottom if you enlarge the window.

The solution is to add 14 (which is double the size of the 5px + 2px margin/border) to the window's width and height.

Change this:




or just subtract 14 from 100.

Hi Glenn,

Thank you very much! You are a gem! I don't know what I would have done without you. This makes my work so much easy, as I have "n" number of popups in this site!

Thanks again! :)
