HI,

In my application I am using popups to show some information. But if user has popup blocker installed in his browser, my popups are getting blocked. Is there any way to unblock popups on user's browser through java /javascript.

Thanks in Advance.
Namrta

No. And if you *did*, without my permission, I'd be upset.

Only option is to detect if they are blocked and display some sort of notification to enable them. A better solution is to not use pop ups at all. Use iframes or Ajax with "modal" divs.
