Try replacing:

'onclick' =>"return popitup('".$this->getUrl('*/*/edit', array('id' => $this->getId()))."')"


'target'    => '_blank'
  • thanks @Marius, but i want to show only pop up window, just i want row id of table , as i had fetched all data into Grid. I tried array('id' => $this->getId())) instead of function getRowUrl($row). Stil unable to get result. In future i want to change popbox to lightbox. Feb 17, 2014 at 10:58
  • Is there any way to fetch id of row at 'onclick' =>"return popitup('".$this->getUrl('*/*/edit', array('id' => $this->getId()))."')" this line. 'id' => $this->getId() just i want to change this line Feb 18, 2014 at 5:20
  • Why not implementing your own JS file with an onclick handler, then you have the full control over the event object Mar 19, 2014 at 12:01

Magento has an attribute for this already -> 'popup'.


'onclick' =>"return popitup('".$this->getUrl('*/*/edit', array('id' => $this->getId()))."')"


'popup' => true

For more information on this check out:


In the method _transformActionData() it says:

case 'popup':
     $action['onclick'] =
          'popWin(this.href,\'_blank\',\'width=800,height=700,resizable=1,scrollbars=1\');return false;';
