View Full Version : How do I set height/width and remove menubar/scrollbar/toolbar onload?

What I want to do is to make a window move to a certain location, set its height and width values, make it not resizable, and remove the scrollbars, toolbar and menubar. However, I do not want to open a new window, I want to make the current window do this onload, any ideas?

For example:
I know I can do this by opening a new window using window.open()


but I do not want to open a new window, I simply want to apply this to a currently opened window (eg. Say I type in 'http://www.wherever.com/' in the address bar and hit go, I want to set the afore-mentioned properties to the page about to load.)

For security reasons, it cannot be done. Web pages don't own the browser toolbars and menu unlike in desktop applications where it has full control of them. Imagine if you could do this (especially browsers nowadays use tabbed windows), what will happen to other pages opened in other tabs?
