    How to cause an IFrame link to open into a new window?

    Hi

    Here is my code, what do I add to make this open in a new window instead of trying to open inside the little iframe?

    <IFRAME SRC="http://www.???.html" target="_blank" height=300p width=468p></IFRAME>

    target="_blank" doesn't help.

    Thanks for any help!

    You need to use javascript to launch a new window with window.open()

    You can also google 'ajax thickbox' to get another way around the problem.

    If you're opening a new window, why use IFRAME? Perhaps a simple

    <A HREF="http://www.???.html" target="_blank" ....

    would do? If you really need to constrain the new window's size, then, yeah, as Burhan said, you'll have to make it a Javascript 'onMouseDown' object....

    Inside the window is a formmail box for data entry. Unfortunately the resulting page is too big for the template.

    Thanks!

    target="_top" does the trick.

    how do you do that

    okay, I am having the same problem, but now I am thinking that using iframes may not be the solution. I am just trying to put a request more information section on the side of my primary information of my home page, and I want it to be on the side. But, without an iframe it goes on the bottom. I like the request more information part in an iframe because I like the thankyou page to pop up in the same window. But, as for the rest of my home page it really annoys me having the links stay in the iframe....

    so what other ways can I constrain the size of the rest of my home page content, and just keep one iframe... Or how do I use Java Script to allow my src links to pop up in new windows?? please help.

    New Window Links on Pages

    To have a link open in it's own window so people won't be leaving your site, follow these directions:

    A normal link looks like this:

    <a href="somepage.htm">Link Name</a>

    To have the link open in a new window add this:

    <a href="somepage.htm" target="_blank">Link Name</a>


    Predefined targets are:
    _blank
    Loads the page into a new browser window.
    _self
    Loads the page into the current window.
    _parent
    Loads the page into the frame that is superior to the frame the hyperlink is in.
    _top
    Cancels all frames, and loads in full browser window.
    "name"
    You can also use any name for a target and it will load a page into a new window.

    yes, the <a href="http://www.yourdomainhere.com" target="_top">Link text here</a> code is what you need.

    Clearly nobody is reading the main point of the thread... In order to limit the size you need Javascript.

    I know, right? *laughs*
    if ($link == "me")
    {
    echo "

    }
