Hi I was wonding if I could change where the location of a pop widow pops up. It pops up in the top left corner now. I want it to pop up somewhere in the middle. Here is what i did to create it. Thanks

How to create & edit Pop-Up Windows

Pop-Up Windows can be easily created using the 'Open Browser Window' of the Dreamweaver behaviors panel. You can give the URL and set the window properties using the 'Open Browser Window' dialog box.

For Example: Click here for live Demo

To create a pop-up window for any link, create the link (either text / image) using '#', select it and then open the Behaviors panel (Shift+F3).
Click the Add (+) button and select 'Open Browser Window' from the Actions pop-up menu.
Select the URL to be opened and set the window properties, say width, height, attributes (Navigation toolbar, Location toolbar, Status bar, Menu bar, Scrollbars as needed, Resize handles) and a name.
To edit a pop-up window, select the link and then double-click the 'Open Browser Window' in the Actions column of the Behaviors panel to make the necessary changes.
Save and test your file in a web browser. That's it you've learnt how to create pop-up windows using Dreamweaver Behaviours.

If I remember right there's an old extension in the Dreamweaver Exchange http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/exchange/ for this. The exchange is down for the moment, but if you search there later, there should be that one plus a couple of other maybe.

There does'nt seem to be an option in DW8 for positioning the Behavior..hmmm..

This site may be useful though, gives more detail for the behaviour:
