Pop-up works in Firefox but not in IE?


Hi
Love the product.
got a lovely app running, but the calander will not pop up in IE7. It will only open up a new tabe where the date can be picked.

In Firefox 3 everything works fine a nice 2" x 3" popup shows.

Is this a bug or have i missed something stupid?

a small code snippet below which may help? it may not come out too clear - sorry.

<tr>
<td valign="top">Start Date:</td>

<td valign="top"><input size="20" maxlength="250" type="text" name="start_date"> </td>

<td valign="top"><a href="javascript:calEntry1.popup();"><img src="../calendar/img/cal.gif" width="16" height="16" border="0" alt="Click here to choose a date" title="Click here to choose a date"> </a> </td>
</tr>
....
....
....
...
<script language="JavaScript">
var calEntry1 = new unix_calendar(document.forms['dates'].elements['start_date']);
calEntry1.year_scroll = true;
calEntry1.time_comp = false;

Any thoughts or suggestions greatfully appreciated.
cheers

do you experience the same issue with the demo?
may be some pop-up blocker.

I get the same results using the demo. I tried the demo with the IE7 popup blocker on and my site in the list of allowed sites and with the popup blocker turned off completely. In both instances a new window/tab was opened and not a resized popup. My version of IE7 is 7.0.5730.11.

ah, so the problem with with resizing...
yes, it's the known issue. IE maintains the minimum window size since v7 and it's bigger than required for calendar.
Consider the modal version of Calendar PRO. We plan to release the modal version of free calendar as well.

This solution is working for me:

In IE7, choose Tools=>Internet Options=>General=>Tab Settings. Once there, look in the section labeled: "When a pop is encountered:".

I tried both the "Let Internet Explorer decide how pop-ups should open" and "Always open pop-ups in a new window" and both opened the calendar in a perfectly resized window.
