  Here is the code for a small window I used to display "larger" pictures on
a website.
You should be able to modify this to do what you want...

___________________________begin code_____________________________________
<script language="Javascript">
var pWidth;
var pHeight;
function moveWin(){

function resizeWindow(){
	if(pWidth > screen.width-50)
	if(pHeight > screen.height-50)
<body onload="resizeWindow();moveWin();">
<img name=pic id=pic src="<%="images/products/" &
<form><INPUT type="button" value="Close" id=button1 name=button1
___________________________end code_____________________________________

Hope it helps.

Subject: [thelist] javascript RE-sizing open pop-up

Okay, I have a question for you folks. This is my first post so please be
patient. I have a website where I use javascript pop-up windows to display
images in a gallery. The pop-up is set to not be resizable, no scrollbars
and no browser menu/buttons. However, there are two different sizes of
images...600x400 and 400x600 (landscape and portrait). When you click on a
portrait image and later click on a different portrait image, the new image
loads in the currently opened pop-up. Great! However, if you later click a
landscape image, a new pop-up is required because of the different
dimensions. Does anyone here know if it is possible to use javascript to
resize the pop-up that is already opened? If so, how would you go about
doing this?

Here's the code I use:
function openWindowPlain(url, name, width, height, scrollbars) {
    var x = (screen.availWidth - width) / 2;
    var y = (screen.availHeight - height) / 2;
