    Re-position Popups

    PlainEnglish
      Is it possible to set the position of a popup window? Seems odd that you can set the popup window size but there is no setting for relocating the popop.

      Thanks.

          To the best of my knowledge, the logic is the popup appears wherever the user clicks and there is no control. Maybe some javascript could affect that but it would need someone with a good knowledge of javascript so that it plays nicely within RoboHelp.

            I am using RoboHelp v6.

            I couldn't find a related topic at www.grainge.org.

            Can you please provide a solution or a specific reference?

            Thank you.

              Hi PlainEnglish

              I don't believe my fellow Adobe Community Expert stated he knew of anything or anywhere you could go to obtain this information. I don't believe it has ever been documented. It is something you would need to undertake on your own to determine what code needs to change and where to change it. As Peter indicated, you would definitely need to have a pretty good handle on JavaScript before undertaking such a project.

              Cheers... Rick

                  I suppose you could do some research on positioning JavaScript popups but it would require some homework on your part and then testing your modifications before committing them to your production project. Just try Googling "position javascript popup". Good luck.

                    For what it's worth department:

                    Popups in RoboHelp are done with the BSSC.js javascript file that is included with RoboHelp. They may have changed the filename by now - check your project directory for a .js file. The popup position is hard coded into the popup functions. However, this file can be edited if you or someone in your company is good with javascript. When Peter says it should "play nicely with RoboHelp," this is where you would want to work - modify the existing functions rather than try to write your own routine that overrides RoboHelp's.
