Conveyor Belt slideshow

greetings. trying to open window (when user clicks on image) using javascript:openWind but cannot get script to work - any help would be great (oh, opening directly to jpg file, but code to htm file is the same really, so I'll take that)

thanx in advance!!

The way this script is set up, using the target="_blank" would be easier (from the demo code, changes in red):
leftrightslide[0]='<a href="http://" target="_blank"><img src="dynamicbook1.gif" border=1></a>'but, you could use:
leftrightslide[0]='<a href="#" onclick="javascript:window.open(\'http://\');return false"><img src="dynamicbook1.gif" border=1></a>'There is no openWind unless you've defined it as a function.

I see that you helped someone on how to use the conveyor belt slideshow script to open a pop window via two methods. Through a _blank window as well as through a javascript openwindow. I can also see (though I'm not very knowledged in programming) that you seem to be escaping out with "\" to allow the ' character.

Now to the point. I'm seeking to use the javascript method of opening a window because I know its capable of setting size/noscroll/nostatus etc but I don't understand the proper form of integrating it within the slideshow script.

Could you kindly help by showing me a sample of opening a popupwindow to a specific size?

thank you for your time...

I knew I had the idea right... thank you for the reference that lead to the popup generator as well.

Much appreciated!
