View Full Version : Getting links in conveyor belt slideshow to open in a popup window

03-14-2007, 02:34 PM
1) Script Title:
Conveyor Belt slideshow

2) Script URL (on DD):

3) Describe problem:
Is there anyway to open links in the conveyor belt slideshow as chromeless popups? I've tried a few popup scripts but as soon as I use them the slideshow stops working and I'm way too much of a newbie to have any idea where the conflict is.

I kind of have a workaround which opens the link in a new window: <a href="link.html" target="_blank"> combined with a script in the new window that resizes it around the content. It does most of what I want apart from the chromeless bit, but before I settle for something that's almost but not exacly what I want I thought I'd ask if anyone has a better solution?

Did you ever find solution to the conveyer belt/popup window problem? I'm in the same situation. I found this but I need it to go horizontally not vertically.

Thanks for the help. One last thing though.... I'd like the pop-up window to appear when the user rolls over the images rather than clicks on the images. I've got it opening but it doesn't close when I roll off.

I have the following:

leftrightslide[1]='<a href="http://www.dynamicdrive.com" onMouseOut="window.close()" onMouseOver="window.open(this.href,\'\',\'width=300,height=250\');return false;"><img src="dynamicbook1.gif" border=1></a>'

leftrightslide[1]='<a href="http://www.dynamicdrive.com" onmouseout="blah.close()" onmouseover="blah=window.open(this.href,\'\',\'width=300,height=250\');return false;"><img src="dynamicbook1.gif" border=1></a>'

But, this will only work with pages on the same domain. And, most pop up blockers will prevent the mouseover event from working anyway.

I am trying to get this code to work but it actually disabled my conveyor belt. Can you help?

Since you are writing code as a part of a string variable that needs to first be parsed and written as innerHTML before it is parsed as code, you need to escape the contained delimiters used here (as shown in red):

onclick="window.open (this.href,\'\',\'width=300,height=250\')

in the above excerpt from your array entry.

These delimiters need to be escaped because they are the same delimiters used to delimit the entire string. Otherwise, the script parser thinks that the entire string ends here:

leftrightslide[0]='<a href="https://ww . . . onclick="window.open (this.href,'
