View Full Version : Disabling Status Bar

I know you can disable a status bar on a window created from the parent window by doing the window.open(....,status=no...) but is there a way to disable the status bar after the new window has been created?

Have a look at VIPStephan's post in http://www.codingforums.com/showthread.php?p=725613 (a similar issue)

OK, I asked the wrong question. I don't want to disable the status bar so that messages don't appear in it. I want to hide the status bar so that it doesn't show up on the bottom of the window I opened. If I could, I would just change the call on my html page located in the parent window that opens the new window to "status=no", but I have this html page at all of my customer sites and I can't just send them a new page since every page is taylored to their site. I found a way to hide scrollbars after the window has opened. Now I need a way to hide the status bar.

Is window.status the only attribute available for the status bar or is there a window.status.value or something like that? Also, is there some webpage I can go to to find a list of all the different javascript attributes for window, document, scrollbars, etc....?
