|Controlling Appearance of Window|
| 6:39 pm on Apr 24, 2003 (gmt 0)|
I want to be able to control the appearance of a window ie:
scrollbars, location, resize etc.
But I want to do this from within the page itself, as with eg. window maximise scripts.
All I can find are scripts for doing this by opening from another page.
Can anyone help?

window.screen.left = 1;
window.resizeTo( window.screen.availHeight/4 );
window.screen.top = 0;
See [webmasterworld.com...] for further discussion on posssible cludges.

Looks like a good cludge would be to have a new window pop up another window, then close itself.
Where can I find a script to do this?

A quick and dirty is:
(I think that should work, haven't tested.)
However, do you really need to? It will look pretty clunky, and if you don't need to remove the toolbars, status bars, and scroll-bars then you should be able to do the rest without closing the window. Personally, I think its pretty condescending to your website visitors to remove the status bars & toolbars; and removing the scroll bars makes it difficult for people with small screens (such as on a PDA) to view your site. So have a think about whether you really need it or not...

I agree with ShawnR, I really hate it when a website takes away my menubar and toolbar.
I can't think of any good reason to do it.
I'm quite capable of making my browser full screen myself if I have to. :)
