Detecting if a popup has been blocked by BillyRayPreachersSon
Posted: 14 Mar 05 (Edited 27 Jun 07)

This works for me in IE6 and FF1 to detect whether a popup was blocked or not:

CODE

<html>
<head>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    <!--
        function openWin() {
            var winHandle = window.open('http://www.google.co.uk/', '', '');
            if (winHandle == null) alert('Popup was blocked');
        }
    //-->
    </script>
</head>
<body onload="openWin();">
</body>
</html>
