View Full Version : Trying to create a custom pop up

03-09-2008, 03:13 AM
Hi Everyone!

I am trying create a popup that does not open a "webpage" - I want to create a popup with just plain text, for example:

This site: http://www.emailmeform.com/?v=turing&pt=popup - it opens up to just plain text, no website, thats what I want to create, preferrably done with a wizard.

I hope you understand what Im trying to do.

The site you linked to is not a good example of what you want to accomplish as it uses a webpage (HTML) for it. If you look at the source, you will see all the elements that build up and HTML page (webpage). You can still create a popup that uses plain text; although you lose all formatting that you could achieve using HTML/CSS. For more info on making the popup, simply search this forum or the DD library for a pop-up window script.

Hope this helps.

Ok, thank you thetestingsite,

so I searched for the pop-up window script in this forum, and havn't found much as in instrcuctional, but may do a rollover script as explained on this site. Im experimenting different things as well.

BTW: whats the bext pixel size for a popup window?

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"


<script type="text/javascript">
function OpenText(URL){
window.open(URL,null, 'width=500, height=500, scrollbars=yes, toolbar=no, menubar=no, directories=no, location=no, left=200, height=200, top=10, resizable=yes, status=no, scrollbars=yes')


<a href="javascript:void(0)" onclick=OpenText('text.txt')>Open text</a>


A plain text-file (extension: txt). Make sure to have hard returns on the appropriate places there, since there is no formatting.
