    Opening Separate Browser Window To Size

    I have a button in a Flash Movie that I need to script to open another _Blank window which will be an HTML page only (no Flash Content).

    What I want is the HTML document in the blank window to open at a smaller fixed size (say 300x300) so that it does not entirely obscure my Flash movie in the background. The HTML page will only contain a registration form, so it does not need a menu bar - just a close box in the browser.

    I have been trying to get this to work using "Get URL" and I see where I can set a _blank window, but no size?

    Any Idea how to do this?

    heya,

    try this:

    on (release) {
    varHeight = "300";
    varWidth = "300";
    getURL("javascript:window.open('yourPopupLink.html ','homepage','width=300,height=300,top='+((screen. availHeight/2)-(" add varHeight/2 add "))+',left='+((screen.availWidth/2)-(" add varWidth/2 add "))); void(0);");

    }

    this will also center the popup
    good luck!

    Thanks EvolveDesigns for the script. I added it to a button in Flash and it opened a blank window, but that was it?

    I think your Script generator solved my problem - thank you so much for the link!

    look for this part in the script:

    yourPopupLink.html


    change it to the name of the page you want to open

    Great! Glad I could help.

    BTW, I rewrote the script last night using a textarea, instead of innerHTML, so this one is IE & NN4+ compatable.

    I think it's much nicer too--check it out, if you get a chance.
