The Simple Way
This method is simple. We use the Get URL method to call the page we wish to open.
With Get URL we have a number of options to choose from in the Window section, these are:
_self : opens the URL into the current content area.
_blank : opens the URL in a new browser window with menus, buttons and at the same size as the current window.
_parent : This opens it to an area in the current window, overruling the parent frames.
_top : This opens the url into the same browser window at the top level, overruling all frames that may be present.
So if we choose the _blank option from the Window options we will open our URL in a new window.
If you wish you can also type in a value into the window field. If the name is a valid frame area then the URL will opened within this, if it is not the URL will also be opened into a new window. By allowing the name to be specified you can allow URLS to be opened to the same new window!
