Displaying dynamic data in pop-up windows

This article explains how to display the dynamic contents of a detail page in a pop-up window. A detail page displays more information about specific records on a results page.

Users typically view search, results, and detail pages in a single browser window. You can create a detail page in a new browser, however, by using the target attribute.

For example, if you want your users to view the details of an on-line catalog item, but don't want them to lose sight of the catalog item list, you can create a detail page that will open in a new browser. When the user clicks the detail link for a specific item, the detail page opens in a pop-up window while the original page (the results page) remains visible behind it.
