Lesson 5. Adding User Interactivity > Opening a New Browser Window

Opening a New Browser Window

This exercise demonstrates how to open a new browser window when the page loads, which can be used for displaying an advertisement, definition terms, or a wide variety of other information. You could open a browser window by using the _blank target along with a standard link, but you wouldn't have any control over the attributes of that new window. On the other hand, the Open Browser Window behavior lets you control the size along with a number of attributes of the new browser window such as scroll bars and menu bars.

TIP

Although the Open Browser Window option is easy to add, think it through before using it on a Web page. Make sure that the extra window is necessary. Users are often irritated with new windows that continually pop up as they browse the Web.
