Create a pop-up window

You can create a pop-up message for your Web page by using Behaviors in Microsoft Office FrontPage 2003. Behaviors are scripting options that enable you to quickly add interactivity or increased functionality to text or other elements of your Web page.

To open a Web page in a new window, see Open a Web page in a new window in the See Also list, which is visible when you are connected to the Internet.

A Behavior is a combination of an event and an action that you want to occur when a site visitor interacts with a Web page or an element of a page. For example, when a visitor clicks a specific page element, you want a pop-up message to appear.

You work with FrontPage Behaviors by using the Behaviors task pane (task pane: A window within an Office program that provides commonly used commands. Its location and small size allow you to use these commands while still working on your files.).

  1. In Page view, at the bottom of the document window, click Design Button image.
  2. To open the Behaviors task pane, on the Format menu, click Behaviors.
  3. On the page, select the page element — for example, text or a graphic — that you want to trigger the pop-up message when it is clicked.
  4. In the Behaviors task pane, click Insert, and then click Popup Message.
  5. In the Popup Message dialog box, type the message that you want to appear in the pop-up message box, and then click OK.

The onMouseOver event is the default event that is associated with the pop-up message action. If you require that a different event be associated with the pop-up message action, replace the default with another event.

ShowHow?

Under Events, point to the default event that is associated with the pop-up message, click the arrow to display the list of events, and then choose the event that you want.
