    Variable resizing pop up windows?


    I have a pop up window which opens displaying data, on some occasions it might be very little information, on others it could be a lot.

    I currently have a fixed size pop up window so it doesn't really look too good with a large amount of data.

    I am wondering if it is possible to set the size of a pop up window based on the amount of information in the html page? Is it possible to do this rather than use a pre defined window size?

    Many thanks

    You can, but with so many people using tabbed browsers that redirect popup windows to a new tab, might it not be better to simply set scrollbars to auto and let the user resize the window, if it is, in fact, in a new window at all?

    That said, here's a couple links.

    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.
