I am building pop-ups using the myWin.open('Etc','Etc',heigth, etc, etc,); function or new object call. The popups are linked to urls like so
Now I record what XY position the mouse was in when the link was clicked and I then write out the new window out in that position. So it writes a popup window based on where it was clicked. If a new link is clicked I close the window and start the process again of finding the position the mouse and drawing a new window.
This is working well in most browsers. I have been asked to add some functionality which is the subject of my question. Once the pop up is drawn and a user moves it can I some how figure out if the window has been moved? Then when the user clicks on a new word not redraw the window based on the mouse click but on where the window was moved to previously?
I know there is an onmove handler in netscape but I need to work in "of course" most browsers. And I have not been able to get the onmove handler to work anyway. Any help would be greatly apprecatied, I have been on this one for a while.
In Netscape Have you tried window_name.screenX and window_name.screenY to get the x and y coordinates . In Inernet Explorer try windowname.screenTop and window_name.screenLeft. Those should retrieve the position of the window.
