Hello.

My left frame lauches on mouseover a pop up window containing a multisearch script. When the selection is made the script lauches a new window containing the result of the search. The size of this window is the same as the pop up window. I need this result window to be full size. And the opo up window to disappear when the search is submitted.

Here is the Url

http://www.secretplace.com/test/search/

Here is the multisearch script also:

unfortuneetatelzy,  if you want a new window to be full size, open it using JS and give it width and height of, let's say, 2000 pixels. It will now be on maximum etxtent.

If you want to resize an _existing_ window, you will have to use Netscape Navigator 4+, sorry.

Could you tell me where this line will appear in the script.
I am not very good in manipulating window.open function.

Thank you.

several times, you have a line that looks like this:

  resultsWin = window.open();

or

  resultWin = window.open("", "results");

try changing this to
  resultWin = window.open("", "results", "width=2000,height=2000");

wherever you want a full-screen window to appear.

Please leave me a comment if you have additional questions.
