I'm working on a site and I want a pop-up to appear when the user clicks a certain link.

eg. when the person clicks the link, a pop-up appears (the little customizable pop-ups that has the "OK" button), and when the user clicks "OK" the pop up closes and the browser links to another page.

Does any1 know the code for this? (if it exists)

Heres wat i have so far ....

a href="" onMouseover="alert('TEXT')">LINKTEXT
but I cannot actually get the browser to go to another page, I don't kno how to integrate the a href=URL> linktext</a into that code

I just quickly whipped this together:

code:
<html>
<head>
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
function popup() {
  var URL = "http://www.google.com";
  alert("A popup window will appear...");
  popup = window.open(URL,"popup","");
}
</script>
</head>


<body>
  <a href="javascript:popup();">click</a>
</body>
</html>

errr.
On re-read I think I missed what you were saying, is this what you want?

code:
<html>
<head>
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
function leaving() {
  var URL = "http://www.google.com";
  alert("You are leaving my site...");
  window.location = URL;
}
</script>
</head>


<body>
    <a href="javascript:leaving();">click</a>
</body>
</html>

I just tried it on my site, and for some reason it doesnt wrk .... the pop-up doesnt show ... and geocities(my host) ends up looking for a file

So far, I have


code:



<html>

<head>
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
function leaving() {
  var URL = "http://www.google.com";
  alert("You are leaving my site...");
  window.location = URL;
}
</script>
</head>



<body>
<text>

(My coding.  I omitted it because there's simply too much)


<a href="javascript:leaving();">click</a>

</text>
</body>
</html>




I was thinking, maybe the problem is in my placement of your coding or maybe .... href= " javacript:leaving() am I supposed to put a URL in there or something?

Also ... is there a way to put comments in html? (eg in turing, u use " % " in front of a statement to make it a comment)

you need to learn alot more java scripting not html... and CSS and dhtml are also very useful for webdesigning
