    How to put image in popup window?

    Hello everyone;

    I know that any html code can be written in a popup window by below technique:

    myWindow = window.open('', 'header', 'menubar=0', 'toolbar=0', etc..);
    myWindow.document.write('<font color=red>Hello World!</font>');

    But when I type;

    myWindow.document.write('<img alt=ALTERNATIVE src=./image.jpeg>');

    It never shows the image, instead it shows 'ALTERNATIVE' written on the page. I can't understand why it's doing this. Anyone of you has an idea? I'd appriciate it..

    Than you very much..

    there should be two periods in your src attribute src=../image.jpg

    try this

    myWindow.document.write("<img alt='ALTERNATIVE' src='../image.jpeg' />");

    Thanks but I just put that "./image.jpeg" for instance. Normally It's not working even if I put the full path!

    I wouldn't use document.write().

    Another way of doing it is:

    1) create a <div> in myWindow and give it an id, say 'imgContainer'.

    2) then use

    myWindow.document.getElementById('imgContainer').innerHTML = '<img src="./images/somePic.jpg" alt="some alt text" />';
    3) and make sure the 1st argument in window.open() contains the correct url to your popup. In your code it is empty.

    Thank you! But It didn't work as well. Still the same..

    This is ridiculous. I can't see the image on the popup window but when I view the source and create an html page by copying that source, it shows the image!!

    Any ideas? Anyone got an experience like this?

    Hi bud,
    You might find this useful if you just want an image to be displayed in a popup window

    Obviously you will need to edit the image name and the path to get it to work properly.
        <script type="text/javascript">
           function openWin(img){
               var path = "images/"
        <title>Open Window</title>
        <a href="javascript:openWin('image0.png')">open window</a>

    Hey thanks bud!

    This is kinda report and I'm not trying to show only an image on popup window. But anyway; I found the reason why it's not showing the image. I was using;


    at the end of the code because somehow page was not get to finish loading itself. When I remove the stop(); function everything works normal except as I said the page never gets to finish loading itself!

    Do you have any idea why it happens? By the way; my browser is firefox..

    Thanks again..
