javascript
// Create a function to display a popup
function displayPopup() {
// Create a new popup window
var popup = window.open("", "MyPopup", "width=300,height=200");

// Add content to the popup window
popup.document.write("

Popup Window

");
popup.document.write("

This is a sample popup window created using JavaScript.

");

// Add a close button to the popup window
var closeButton = popup.document.createElement("button");
closeButton.textContent = "Close";
closeButton.addEventListener("click", function() {
popup.close(); // Close the popup window when the button is clicked
});
popup.document.body.appendChild(closeButton);
}

// Call the displayPopup function when a button is clicked
var popupButton = document.getElementById("popupButton");
popupButton.addEventListener("click", displayPopup);

In this sample code, we define a `displayPopup` function that creates a new popup window using the `window.open` method. We then write some content to the popup window using its `document.write` method. Additionally, we add a close button to the popup window using `createElement` and `appendChild` methods. Finally, we attach an event listener to a button element (with id “popupButton”) that calls the `displayPopup` function when clicked.

Please note that for this code to work, you would need to have an HTML file with a button element having the id “popupButton.”
