Using javascript to open, close and control browser windows



Here's the scenario:


Your site's default start page is a splash screen, this screen gives links to obtain the various pluggins and software that are needed to view your site. It also has a link to enter your site. If this 'enter' link is clicked a small pop up window will appear with 3 further links - fullscreen, pop up and normal. When you click on one of these links, that type of window will open with your site inside. The small pop up with the 3 links will then close down.

 - fullscreen: this will open a new window that fills the users screen (whatever size and resolution it is) it will be non-resizeable and will have no toolbars, menubars, status bars or anything else apart from the title bar the existing window (the one with the splash screen) will also change location (i make mine go to a page with a graphic saying 'thanks for visiting, yadda yadda yadda') and also the small pop up window will then close itself and dissapear.

 - pop up: this will open a new window (usually 800x600) which will have all usual window features (toolbars, menu, etc) the user can move and resize this window as standard. the existing window (the one with the splash screen) will change location (i make mine go to a page with a graphic saying 'thanks for visiting, yadda yadda yadda') and also the small pop up window will then close itself and dissapear.

 - normal: this will simply load the site into the existing window and also the small pop up window will then close itself and dissapear.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
