How to get my popup blocked from an anchor tag

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

I use Flash in my website to open some popups, which instead calls my popup blocker because the browser doesn't recognise the flash click as user input.  I'm trying to force the user to accept popups within my site.  To do so, I have a button which calls a javascript function which in turns calls a window.open.  The problem is that that popup goes through since it came from user input.  My question is, since it's unlikely that I can circumvent popup blockers to enable window.open from my Flash, is there a way to make the blocker appear from a regular click?  Thanks a lot.

jquery anchor click


looking for confirmation that using jquery to click an <a> element does not simulate the click of the link like it does in the object returned by getElementById.

<a id="anchor1" href="http://www.google.com">google</a>

// this does not click the link.
var x2 = $('#anchor1');

// this does click the link.
var x3 = document.getElementById('anchor1') ;
x3.click( ) ;

// this syntax returns the DOM object for the anchor element which can be clicked to redirect to the link.
var x4 = $('#anchor1') ;
var x5 = x4[0] ;
x5.click( ) ;

Toast Popup Form is Stealing Focus

I have a Windows Form application that when it is running a process it displays a MSM type toast popup.  The problem is when we create this form in a second thread and display it.  The problem is when it is displayed it steals focus from other applications or even our own.  Anyone have any ideas on this and how to make it not steal focus. I create the popup in a thread pool. ThreadPool.QueueUserWorkItem( new WaitCallback( DisplayPopUp ), new PopUpParameters( BackgroundImage, ForeColor, Clicked, Delay, Message, ButtonText ) ); This is the code for DisplayPopUp: using (PopUp p = new PopUp((PopUpParameters)popUpParameters)) { p.ShowDialog(); } Inside the form it has 3 timers.  One for Pop, Pause, and UnPop.  The form Load event is where the position of form is set and the event pop timer is started.  The events for Pop and UnPop just change the form Top location.  The form is not set to TopMost. Any help would be great. Thanks, Eric

Exit Popup and response.redirect

Hi, I have a requirement to show an Exit Popup on one of our processing pages. I am showing the exit popup by registering a client side javascript like window.onbeforeunload = ShowExitPopUp(); The popup executes fine if you close the window, or try to type in a different URL. However the issue is that my processing page is also performing a "Response.Redirect" on the server side once the process completes. When response.redirect happens the exitpopup also shows up. Is there a way to have the exit popup not show up in that case? Since my server side code is running through an UpdatePanel, so I have tried registering the following, in an attempt to remove ExitPopup from client side. However this doesn't work since server side redirection happens before end request. Sys.WebForms.PageRequestManager.getInstance().add_endRequest(RemoveExitPopup); Has anyone faced a similar situation and handled it?
