Learn how to create a custom popup window for your website.

The method described below displayPopup() can be used to create a popup window with the dimensions that you want. Also this function can be modified to write html code inside of it. If you need to use this function to create a printer friendly version of the page, you need to make sure you call window.document.close() before calling window.print(), otherwise the popup window won't print. In this case calling vWinPht.document.close(), before calling the method to print the popup window would work.


Open PopUp


 Code Snippet 1

<script type="text/javascript"> 
function displayPopup(url, winName, dim1, dim2) {
     dim1 = dim1 + 20;

     var myparam = "width=" + dim1 + ",height=" + dim2 + 
     vWinPht =, winName, myparam);
     vWinPht.opener = self;

    //close the window object before calling print

    //add method for printing popup window
    //vWinPht.document.getElementById("btntoprint").onclick = function() { 
    //     vWinPht.print();
