Though it is a simple method, many developers find it difficult to remember its syntax.
Syntax of window.open() :
window.open(‘URL’,’window name’ [,window attributes]);
URL = Address of the web page you want to open.
window name = Name of the window.
and there are number of window attributes of window.open() available which you can use :
scrollbars=yes|no – specifies whether the new window should have scrollbars.
resizable=yes|no – specifies if the window is resizable.
width=pixels – the width of the new window is specified in pixels and is in numerical format.
height=pixels – the height of the new window is specified in pixels and is in numerical format.
top=pixels – specifies the Y coordinate of the top left corner of the new window.
left=pixels – specifies the X coordinate of the top left corner of the new window.
These are the most important parameters of the window, however there are other parameters like :
toolbar=yes|no – specifies whether to display the toolbar in the new window.
location=yes|no – specifies whether to display the address line in the new window.
status=yes|no – specifies whether to display the browser status bar.
menubar=yes|no – specifies whether to display the browser menu bar.
Example of window.open() :
If a window with the name you have specified already exists, then window.open() will display the new content in that existing window, rather than creating a new one.
