Resize an existing popup window

Nigel Molesworth
Posts: n/a
I'm using a combination of various "googled" scripts to generate
borderless pop-ups when a thumbnail is clicked, see below. At present it
works OK, a new image takes the place of an old one, the pop up goes if
you close the parent etc.

My problem is that I would really like to resize an existing window if
one exists, rather than close and make a new one. See ******

I've tried .resizeTo() but it seems to come up with a tiny window.

Any thoughts?

var popwin='';

function viewPic(img)
picfile = new Image();
picfile.src =(img);

function fileCheck(img)
if( (picfile.width!=0) && (picfile.height!=0) )

function checkExisting(img)
if (popwin.location && !popwin.closed)
//popwin.location.href = img; need a tidy here, but it works ******
// popwin.focus();
else {makeWindow(img)}

function makeWindow(img)
ht = picfile.height;
wd = picfile.width;

var args= "height=" + ht + ",innerHeight=" + ht;
args += ",width=" + wd + ",innerWidth=" + wd;"","_blank",args)
bgcolor=white scroll=no topmargin=0 leftmargin=0 rightmargin=0
bottomargin=0 marginheight=0 marginwidth=0> <div style="position:
absolute; top:0px;left:0px"><a href="javascript:window.close()"> <img
src="'+img+'" width="'+wd+'" height="'+ht+'"

function tidy() {
if (popwin.location && !popwin.closed) {
popwin.close(); }
