This week's book giveaway is in the General Computing forum. We're giving away four copies of Arduino in Action and have Martin Evans, Joshua Noble, and Jordan Hochenbaum on-line! See this thread for details.
I want to generate a pop up from a JSR 168 portlet deployed in JBoss Portal.I tried it using 1 pen("<portlet:renderURL><portlet aram name="jspp" value="AddContact.jsp"></portlet aram></portlet:renderURL>","addContactWindow","status=no,toolbar=no,menubar=no,scrollbars=yes,height=300,width=300");
The best way to avoid this problem is not to use pop-ups.
Pop-ups are a serious problem in the portal. But they are also highly frowned upon. Most browsers block pop-ups, so your support desk will now be inundated with people asking why their portal page doesn't work. And pop-ups annoy users greatly.
Pop-ups are typically a lazy solution to a simple problem. Think about the problem, and you'll come up with a simply solution that avoids using a pop-up.
