From Opera 15 onward, Opera 11 & 12’s extension format is no longer supported, and instead, we’ve switched to Chromium’s extension model. Check out our new documentation for developing extensions for Opera 15 and higher and start building your own extensions.


A URL reference to the page to pop up; this page will pop up when the user clicks on an ExtensionUIItem; editing the href attribute while the popup is open will close the popup. Note that this attribute is set in the background script as part of the ToolbarUIItemProperties object. See the Browser Toolbar guide.


DOMString href


// The background process (e.g. '/background.js').

// Set options for the button
var UIItemProperties = {
  disabled: false,
  title: 'Opera Extension',
  icon: 'images/icon_18.png',
  popup: {}

// Set the popup's height to 480 pixels
UIItemProperties.popup.href = 'popup.html';

// Create the button and add it to the toolbar
var button = opera.contexts.toolbar.createItem(UIItemProperties);
