What is a popup?
A popup is a text or graphic layer that is only visible on a web page when the user rolls over a button somewhere else on the page. When the user rolls off the triggering button the popup disappears again.

Rollovers always appear over approximately the same area as the triggering button. Popups always appear somewhere else on the page.

Many companies also design popups with misleading buttons, causing users to click the wrong button when they try to close the ad, which can trigger the appearance of more popups, or start a script whic
A popup is a type of picklist. When options are to be chosen from a foreign table and there are too many to display in a radio group or a dropdown list, then the only alternative is to use to another form instead of a control or widget within the current form. The popup form will display the contents of the foreign table and allow the user to choose either a single entry, or in some cases multiple entries. A popup form is identical to a LIST form, but with the addition of a CHOOSE button in the action bar. The availability of a popup in a form is signified with a popup button situated to the right of the data field. By pressing this the current form is suspended and a new form, the popup form, will appear in its place. By default the user cannot enter any text before activating the POPUP form, but this behaviour can be amended using the information provided in FAQ 81.
