    frames and status bar

    Is there any way to 'hide' the statusbar message (have it be blank) using a script on a page with frames - I know I could do it on with window open when I call the page, but would really like to do it on the page if possible. Here is what I have:

    <HEAD>
    <FRAMESET ROWS="1,*" BORDER="0">
    <FRAME SCROLLING=NO SRC="" FRAMEBORDER="0">
    <FRAME SCROLLING=AUTO statusbar=no SRC="http://www.mypage.com" FRAMEBORDER="0">
    <FRAME SRC="x">
    </FRAMESET>

    </head>

    <body >
    </body>
    </HTML>

    I've tried the 'hide status message' script from javascript kit, and also tried setting defaultStatus -- but nothing seems to make any diff to the status bar. HELP!

    Well, I think you have to do this for EVERY link.. :

    Code:
    <a href="wherever.html" onMouseOver="status=' '" onMouseOut="status=' '">Text..</a>
    I may have made a couple of errors.. But, I think you kinda get the idea

    I've tried defaultStatus in the page with the frameset - nothing happens - I had it in the head section - didn't try the body.
    I don't want to mess with the page in the second frame, so the onmouseover won't work.....

    Hmm, well... instead of leaving the src blank on the top frame, make a page like this:

    Code:
    <HTML>
    <HEAD>
    <SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
    <!--
    var statBarMsg " "
    function statuschange()
    {
        window.status = statBarMsg;
        setTimeout("startStatusScroller()", 0)
    }
    //-->
    </script>
    </HEAD>
    <BODY onload="statuschange()";> 
    </BODY>
    </HTML>
    Hope that works

    try this in the frameset page:

    window.onload = function() {
    status=";
    defualtStatus='';
    }

    in theory, that will wate till all of the frames have loaded, and then set the status to nothing, so that should take care of it. if it doesn't then i'm out of ideas
