Hi,
is there a way to force pop up windows even if the browser preferences is set to block pop windows?

Hi,

I don't think there will be a way when the browser settings blocks pop ups. But not very sure on my answer. Wait for more Ranchers to answer you.

You can always try create a new window with minimal features the size set on it. It would then be as good as a pop-up.

Who needs popups when you can use dynamic divs and layering to show your message? In addition, you can use a div, put an iframe in it, and show the new page...Setting a divs z-index to something higher than 2 should do the trick. Also, if the reference to the div (id) is maintained, you can reuse the same div over and over...just change its size and z-index to hide...(1,1 and z-index < 0)

Popups are just so 2002!

Seriously, popups have gone out of favor as a means of delivering user information. They're intrusive and disruptive.

In my modern web apps, new windows are opened only as links to external sites. Everything else happens in-page.
