Window.open status and location RRS feed

  • Question

  • I use javascript "window.open" method to open a new browser window. I've set all features(toolbar, menubar, etc...) to "0" and it works fine while i run the page on my local machine(None of the features are shown on pop-up window). When i publish the web site and navigate it from internet, same pop-up window appears with address and status bar. I use Windows 7 on my local machine and Windows 2003 Server SP2 on my server. I've tested it with Internet Explorer 8 and on couple of different computers and the results were the same. I've read an article about it and it says IE forces to show these features due to security issues.

    Is there a way to fix this or should i look for alternative ways?

  • You should give up and accept the presence of the address bar in the Internet zone.  You can't circumvent security features, because then they wouldn't be secure.

    There is no work-around.
