how to open pop up by javascript

how to open pop up by javascript 


Hi Omar, can I ask why would you want to do that?

Please give more info regarding your use-case, as if you are using the Popup widget you have a property called showPopup, where you can bind to a boolean variable, and changing the value of your boolean local variable between True and False will make the popup appear/disappear. 

So in your logic if you want to make the popup open, just pass the value of your boolean variable bound to it, to True. 

But let me know your specific use-case and why you are not following the regular method so I can try and help further,


Hi @Omar AbdElhadi 

Yes, As Paulo suggest, use the OutSystems popup widget to show and hide. It will also work on client side as JavaScript.
