Opera and Firefox both run the following function perfectly as expected but IE7 opens a new whole page window and complains about ActiveX, requiring an acceptance by the user before the 'Close Window' button will work. Any suggestions gratefully accepted.

function popup(mylink, windowname, w, h)
{
if (! window.focus)return true;
var href;
if (typeof(mylink) == 'string')
   href=mylink;
else
   href=mylink.href;
   settings="width=" + w + ",height=" + h + ",scrollbars=yes,location=no,directories=no,status=no,menubar=no,toolbar=no,resizable=no";
window.open(href, windowname, settings);
return false;
}

A sample call to the function would be:-

<span class="link2"><a href="070595.html" target="_blank" onClick="return popup(this, 'Item 070595', '400', '420')">Larger Image...</a> </span>

are you running this locally on your computer or via a website ?

if its locally you will recieve this error through IE to disable it. Set your security settings to low/intranet in IE.

Maybe this would help!

<body>
<span class="link2">
<a href="javascript:void(0);"  onclick=" window.open('070595.html', 'Item 070595', 'toolbar=no,scrollbars=yes,location=no,directories=no,status=no,resizable=no,width=400,height=420');">Larger Image...</a> 
</span>
</html>

</span>
</html>

Thanks for that - I'll give it a try. However, I was hoping to use a function so I could pass the size parameters for each popup without having to write the whole thing each time. There are up to 12 popups on some pages.

Maybe this would help!

Sorry, that doesn't seem to work at all.

You must be having some technical issue, i guess! And that code is actually workin fine with me...

If this doesnt solve the issue then i would like to say sorry in advanced...
