Mailbox popup... in header???

Hello,

I have been trying over the past couple of hours to get a popup box to popup when you have a new message.

As i have added the code into the header to do this the popup pops up on every page like i wish it to..

The problem is i only want it to pop up when a user has a new mail...

I have tried this and a few others..

Add this below global at very top of the page...

$mc=$ir['new_mail'];

 

Then add this at the very bottom of the page...

if($mc > 0) { print "Pop up box here."; }

 

The box is popping up if there is a new mail or not it dosn't matter.

Any help on fixing this would be great.

Re: Mailbox popup... in header???

What you mean, you want it show up somewhere on a page or do you want a box to pop up saying something like "you have 1 new mail"

well here's a little script to make a box pop up when you have 1 new mail

 

if ($ir['new_mail'] > 0)
{
echo '<script>
alert("You have 1 new mail!")
</script>';
}

 

add it to header.php

In my opinion I think it would be annoying as hell if u didn't want to read your email right away that you got a pop up on every page click. Especially if you are in the middle of attacking somebody.

Re: Mailbox popup... in header???

have you looked up <div> or just over looked it?

somthing along these lines (off the top of my head)

css:

.message {
border: 2px soild #333333;
font: 12px Arial;
text-indent: 3px;
height: 200px;
width: 300px;
overflow: auto;
position: absolute;
left: 100px;
right: 100px;
top: 100px;
bottom: 100px;

 

div:

if ($ir['new_mail'] > 0)
{
echo '<script>
alert("<div class='message'>stuff here or message</div>")
</script>';
}

 

if it dont work ... Use google and google <div>

Its not anything to do with the box..

It's to do with the if statment.

The popup box works fine (from dynamic drive)

But will not open when i want it to lol.

So its the statment.. must be not calling it properly

Re: Mailbox popup... in header???

Ok i have had a play around and have got this far...

 

<?php
global $db, $ir;
if ($ir['new_mail'] > 0)
{
echo '<script>
alert("You have 1 new mail!")
</script>';
}
else
{
}
?>

 

I have named that file mainmenu.php and got the header.php to call it.

The pop up box works but pops up even if you dont have a new mail.

Any more help?
