Pop-up windows in IE
I’ve been working with pop-up windows (loading external html files) and discovered something odd with Internet Explorer 11. (Something odd with IE 11? How could that be?!)
If you want a custom pop-up window with just the frame and no controls, your first step is usually engaging the Jump to File/URL trigger, then filling out the definitions of the window, including no browser controls and a custom window size.
I’ve found, however, that if your new pop-up window height is larger than your default monitor’s height, IE 11 will open up to the height of your default monitor’s height (like it should), but it will not engage scroll bars. It will also not allow you to resize, since you’ve chosen no browser controls. [Chrome and Firefox does puts up scroll bars and allows for resizing.] This makes viewing the lower content of your custom-sized pop-up window difficult and non-intuitive. I would imagine that the same behavior would happen in the width dimension too, although I haven’t confirmed this.
var myWindow = window.open("yourPopUp.html", "", "width=800, height=1100,toolbar=no, scrollbars=yes, resizable=yes");
Just plug in your URL, and your width and height, and this takes care of the issue.
