How to open a popup window with jquery

Filed under: JavaScript— Tagged with: popup, snippets

Generally popups are considered bad-ish, but sometimes they’re handy. For example when opening an audio player.

The following expects you to have the following HTML:

<a class="popper" html="#">Pop it</a>
$(function () {
  $('.popper').click(function () {
    var href = $(this).attr('href'), 'popup', 'height=500,width=400,toolbar=no')

    return false

This will give you a pop-up window 500px tall and 400px wide.
