How to Create a Popup Window With Dreamweaver
If you have ever wanted to include a pop-up window with your website, such as for thumbnails or accessibility, Dreamweaver makes it easy to do so. Dreamweaver has included automatic scripting to let you change a few options and add a pop-up window to your website almost automatically with no hard coding involved. Follow these steps to add a pop-up window to your website.
Things You'll Need
Start Dreamweaver. Open a new blank document by selecting "HTML" in the "New" category on the introduction splash screen.
Type the word "Link" or some other text so you can test out the pop-up window onto your new blank HTML document and select it when you are finished.
Choose the "Window" menu, and then "Behaviors" to bring up the Behaviors panel.
Click on the "+" symbol and then choose "Open Browser Window" to view the Open Browser Window pop-up properties. Here, you can set the specific properties you would like to apply to your pop-up window.
Key in, copy and paste or browse to input the URL you wish the visitor to be directed to when he clicks on the word "Link" in your document.
Specify the width and height of the pop-up, as well as any attributes you want the pop-up to contain such as a toolbar, menu bar, status bar, scrollbars or resize handles and click "OK."
Select "onClick" from the Events column in the Behaviors panel to set the pop-up window to occur when the word "Link" is clicked.
Tips & Warnings
- Use the keyboard shortcut of Shift+F4 to quickly bring up the Behaviors panel.
- You must be in Preview view before you can test to see if the pop-up window works correctly.
