    Simple Question : window.location target??

    Hey there,

    I'm using a very simple redirect for printing a printer-friendly version of some information.

    I use a frame so that the page is hidden from the user.

    The redirect I am using is :

    Code:
    <body onload="window.location='example.htm'">
    This works great for me as I don't need any extra JS, just this quick, simple solution.

    My question is, how can I add a target="_top" to the redirect to break out of the frames?

    Thanks a lot!

    You may have to use window.open() (though I'm not sure about the purpose)

    browsers block popup windows

    window.open will open in new window... what if the browser is set to block the popup... whereas hyperlinks target=_blank works fine and why not a javascript code other than window.open...??? or we have to trigger a hyperlink event on an hyperlink which is set open in new window.... phew...
