I want to add virtual tours to a website. I'd like the viewer to be able to click on an icon and have a window pop up with an IPX file that is the virtual tour, that automatically starts playing. I have the applet code, I'm just not sure where to put it.

code="IpixViewer.class" name="IpixViewer" 
width="320" height="240" align="middle" 
archive="IpixViewer.jar" id="IpixViewer">
		<param name="url" value="great-room.ipx" />
		<param name="toolbar" value="off" />
		<param name="initfov" value="0" />
		<param name="spinspeed" value="2" />
		<param name="spinstyle" value="flat" />

Does anyone know how to do this? Thanks!

I've certainly seen it done. Just some javascript with window open but the window has to have a name so that it will load with the correct file as well as the applet. There's tons of free javascript other there, just Google till you find what you want.

<script type="text/javascript">
 function pop(url,name)
	if (window.focus) {
	return false;

You might have to tweak the height= and the width= but that should be all you need to do. Just put that in between the <head></head> tags. The used something like this to open the window

<a href="http://www.example.com/pop.html" onclick="return pop('http://www.example.com/pop.html','Pop page');" >Open me</a>

I would still put the href="" in just in case the person does not have JavaScript enabled.
