Dreamweaver CS3 – Open Browser Window Behavior
Open Browser Window will open a page in a new window when the user clicks on an element, such as an image. The Open Browser allows you to specify the width and height of the window. You can also customize the attributes of the new window, including the navigation toolbar, location toolbar, status bar, menu bar, and scroll bars, as needed, and resize the handles. You can also set the window title through the browser’s Open Window dialog.
If you did not specify the height and width, the new window will open with the same height and width as the main window from where the user clicks the link. Setting one attribute will automatically disable other attributes that are not relevant. For example, if you did not specify the height and width, the new window will open at 1024 X 768 pixels with a scroll bar. However, if you specify the height and width of the window to 600 X 480 pixels, which is the exact size of the content, no toolbar will be displayed.
To apply the behavior of the open browser window, you must select Windows > Behavior. After that you need to select an object. Next, you need to click the + button in the Behaviors windows and select Open Browser Window. In the Open Browser dialog, you need to enter the URL of the web page you want to display. Alternatively, you can click the Browse button to select a document from your computer. In the Window Width text box, you must specify the width of the new window.
You must check the checkbox of the attributes that you want to appear in the new window. If you want the new window to have a navigation toolbar, check the Navigation Toolbar check box. If you want the new window to have a Location toolbar, check the Location Toolbar check box. If you want the new window to have a status bar, check the Status Bar check box. If you want the new window to have a menu bar, check the Menu Bar check box. If you want the new window to have scroll bars, check the Scroll Bars box as required. If you want the new window to have resize controls, check the Resize Controls check box.
Finally, you need to specify a title for the new window in the Window Name text box and click the OK button.
