I am launching a new window from the first page of a site within which everything will then be loaded.
My question is how can I get the opening window to either close or minimise after if has opened my new window. What I want to be left with is just the window in the middle of the screen without the opener in the background.
My base platform is IE4. I have searched everywhere for a solution but non has been forthcoming. Also is it possible when opening the window to get rid of the really annoying controlbar at the top. I have everything turned off that I know of but I still have the thick controlbar at the top. If it can't turned off can it be made thinner?
At the moment I am just using a pretty standard opener script:-
self.name = 'opener';
Urlvar = "index2.htm";
PCMBrowser = window.open(Urlvar,'newWindow',winOpts);
I'll start the points at 50 incase (as I suspect) the answer comes back as "Not Possible". If it starts getting interesting I'll up the points.
