    Challenging question: Popup using Javascript and not using JQuery

    hello all,

    This is my first posting in quite some time.

    I was looking at http://simplythebest.net/scripts/DHT...script_43.html - specifically the option (g) for something I want to accomplish but cannot:

    1) I have a page on my website on which I have a table. In the table in the first column I have a hyperlink which should create popup windows as follows:
    a A popup window which appears on a mouseover - essentially the content of another page whose URL is known.
    b On clicking, the content of this popup window is changed to show content of a different page again whose URL is known.

    2) If the first column is in the first row, then the mouseover URL, say x is displayed in the popup window.
    3) When clicked, the onclick URL in first row, say y is displayed in the popup window.
    4) If the first column is in the second row, then the mouseover URL, say a is displayed in the popup window.
    5) When clicked the onclick URL in the second row, say b is displayed in the popup window.
    6) Finally, in mouseover mode, if the mouse pointer moves off the hyperlink, the popped up window should close.

    What I am challenged by is:

    1) Mouseover URL is different from the onclick URL.
    2) Overcoming popup blockers.

    Thank you in advance.

    Iframe has to be left out since that un-optimize the website from SEO standpoint.

    I was looking more from a PHP / Javascript standpoint and with layers.. please see the example in the link - especially (g).

    Thank you for looking at my query.

    I managed to solve this problem myself - this is how:

    1) You need to download a second plugin called overlib_positioncap.js - check here http://overlib.boughner.us/plugins/p..._commands.html

    2) Then using the SRC attribute, you can display the content of a webpage.

    Important point to remember - some websites have locks on them whereby they have code which detects whether the page is opened in a native manner or in a frame. If there is such a lock on the page you are trying to display, then you will need to research a workaround if it exists. (The page I want to display is on my own website so I do not have such limitations to take care of... if at all, I need to incorporate such locks on my page as well - but that is a different forum / topic!)

    Thank you for your patience.

    Uttam
