    Description

      Situation:
      I had several times the need to change the page design in popup windows.

      Problem:
      There is no way to determine if a page is loaded in a popup window. (As far as I know).

      Solution after a longer chat Eloy proposed:
      A function in weblib.php

      /**

      • Returns true if the page is displayed in a popup window.
      • Gets the information from the URL parameter inpopup.
        *
      • @return boolean
        *
      • TODO Use a central function to create the popup calls allover Moodle and
      • TODO In the moment only works with resources and probably questions.
        */
        function is_in_popup() {
        $inpopup = optional_param('inpopup', '', PARAM_BOOL);

      return ($inpopup);
      }

      In the theme header and footer you can then get the status with
      <?php $inpopup = is_in_popup(); ?>
      and add a class to body or the "page" div or write a different header or footer when in a popup window.
