output link open in new window

Hi

 

I have an output link when clicked should open in new window not the tab. I tried using target=blank for IE browser but the link is getting opened in new tab but not new window.  Is there any way that I can open it in new window as popup instead of tab

Hi,

 

Use following,

 

 

<apex:outputLink value="your URL" target="_blank">Edit</apex:outputLink>

 This will work in IE properly. But in firefox, t will be a new tab.

chamil,

 

As a clarification, target="_blank" can be configured to open in a new window or a new tab, depending on the user preference.

Hi

 

Can you explain how   target="_blank" can be configured to open in a new window or tab? Because when I use IE browser   with default tab settings as " let  browser decide how popup should be open as a tab or window" the link is always getting opened in new tab but I want it to be opened in new window always. For this I don't want to change browser settings. Is this can be achieved?

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

My IE browser has following settings

Tools>Internet Options>General>Tabs>Settings>"A new tab in the current window"

 

And I have used the code as in my previous reply. It works properly. It produce a new window for popoup.
