Popup Blocker Problem
I'm having problems with using the open url feature for buttons. If I make the url a pdf file on the web server and open it in a new window, it usually gets blocked by popup blockers. However, even within the same menu, some don't trigger the popup blocker, even though to all intents and purposes they are the same.
Whilst it isn't a problem for me to allow popups for that site, it causes no end of support calls from visitors to the site who can't open various resources.
Any ideas / ways round this?
why not opening in a new window/tab instead of the popUp?
popUps are disabled by most browsers by default not without reason
It was set to open in a new window (or tab).
I've solved it now (although its a bit of an odd solution):
Instead of using the onClick option, I put the actions in onRelease. For some reason, this kept popup blockers happy.
hmm interesting,- thx for the info

PS. It really sucks when you want to have the flash movie trigger the popup (user initiated), and have a slideshow or qtvr in a small window while still seeing the main window below... without the popup blocker telling you you can't. I hope nobody notices that little kludge
