how to open new tab and insert content in it using javascript?

How can I open a new tab using javascript or jquery and insert new dynamic content in it? Bypassing the pop-up issue also, as I need to show a .pdf file in new window, but you can show me the code of opening and showing HTML in it, I will handle the pdf part.

I have done similar work in the past, you need to do two steps in it.

  1. Open another tab using using target as _blank
  2. Call html/pdf url in it

In this way you will be able to bypass pop-up message of browser also, so your code can be

//remember this button click should be by user, otherwise, you will get pop-up 
 $('.button').click(function (e) {

//open new blank tab 
authWindow ='about:blank', '_blank');

//place your html/pdf url in it
authWindow.location.replace('/pdfview/111/view'); // here '/pdfview/111/view' is url to fetch data for window


Please, do remember , the above button click should be by user otherwise you will get browser pop-up message
