Jquery DataTables popup error

What error? I'm having a hard time understand what you are having?

You are having trouble making another window open a website?

Where is your ajax code?

I mean this:

<?= "<a href=? onclick=\"xajax_getContact('".$row['mobile']."','".$row['id']."');return false;\">".$row['customer']." (".$row['mobile'].")</a>"?>
