View Full Version : Keeping a pop up window visible

11-11-2004, 07:55 AM

I know that this subject hs been covered before however it wasnt quite what I was looking for, hence the new thread on an old favourite.

I have a database driven website that I have done which has a log on area for the owner to manage the content of the site.

I have written a manual that explains all the inner workings of the adminPanel (as it is called) but I would also like to include a step by step 'How do I....?' feature. Ideally what would happen when this was clicked is a list of all the tasks possible will appear and when the user clicks on one a pop up window will appear with step by step instructions for the selected task.

For this to work the popup needs to stay in view as the user works on the main window. The affect would be similar to a feature like 'Find & Replace' in dreamweaver which always stays in view even when not in focus.

Is there any way I can achieve this affect with javascript?

I hope Im being clear and thanks in advance for any advice
