    if anybody can hear me....

    if anybody reads this in this somewhat desolate forum i would like to know how to float a div out side the window (ie. over the refresh, stop, home buttons). this aparantly can be done in dhtml. i was wondering how to do this for making a custom window with nice custom close and minimize buttons. does anybody know where i can get a javascript manual (like the php one) with all the properties and functions.

    This is me participating in the somewhat desolate forum....

    Whackaxe - I don't have any answers for you - but let me know if you get anything, cause that sounds like an amazing idea - I didn't know you could do stuff like that (I've never seen it...)

    Use window.createPopup() from IE5.5 - a proprietary addition that was added and does exactly what you describe. Search msdn.microsoft.com for examples on how to do that.

    BTW, this doesn't fall under the DOM scripting category - as createPopup() is not a standardized W3C DOM method, object, or property. I'll move somewhere appropriate in a sec...

    well i have seen it but i cant remember where! the guy had managed to make his own titlebar and really cant see how he did it. i researched the createpopup method but the thing is that it dissappears if you click anywhere else on the page! so thats great if your navigating around a site and you go to check someothezr window and then the webpage is lost! this really is an effect i want to get so if anybody knows how this can be done. can they please tell me

    Just keep it focused then:

    refToPopup.attachEvent('onblur', function() { this.focus() });

    See what that accomplishes.
