-Regular secondary window
<form><input type="button" onClick="loadwindow()" value="Load Window"></form>
"status=1" tells the method to display the status bar; "1" is the computer equivalent of "yes"
Manipulating the window
There are various methods available to move, close, resize or reload the window.
–window.location.reload() //reloads window
-window.close() //closes window
-window.moveTo(x,y) //moves window to specified location
-window.moveBy(x,y) //moves window by specified offset
-window.resizeTo(x,y) //resizes window to specified dimensions
-window.resizeBy(x,y) //resizes window by specified amount
To use these methods on the current window, simply call them as is on the page. You can also use them on the opened window, by following these two steps:
Step 1: When opening a window, assign a variable to it:
Step 1: Use this variable to reference the opened window, then apply the desired method on it:
mywin.location.reload //reload mywin
mywin.moveTo(0,0) //positions window at upper left corner of monitor
Ok, getting back on track…
Modal windows are a fun Internet Explorer specific feature. The window sits "focused" on the page until the user clicks on the close button. The window does not go into the background no matter what (for example, clicking on the main window).
Notice how I use dialogWidth and dialogHeight to specify the window’s dimension. You also need to specify the unit, which in this case I use px.
