On starting an html page, how can I force the browser to open as a window of, lets say, 300 x 300 pixels? I know how to open a second window with predefined mesures, so that is not the question. I'm talking about the first one. Can it also be centered on the screen?

Use javescript method window.open like this:

<FORM NAME="myform">
<INPUT TYPE="button" NAME="Button1" VALUE="Open Sesame!"
   onClick="window.open
   ('sesame.html', 'newWin', 'scrollbars=yes,status=yes,width=300,height=300')">
</FORM>


============================================================

[windowVar = ][window].open("URL", "windowName", ["windowFeatures"])

windowVar is the name of a new window. Use this variable when referring to a window's properties, methods, and containership.

URL specifies the URL to open in the new window.

windowName is the window name to use in the TARGET attribute of a <FORM> or <A> tag. windowName can contain only alphanumeric or underscore (_) characters.

windowFeatures is a comma-separated list of any of the following options and values:

   toolbar[=yes|no]|[=1|0]
   location[=yes|no]|[=1|0]
   directories[=yes|no]|[=1|0]
   status[=yes|no]|[=1|0]
   menubar[=yes|no]|[=1|0]
   scrollbars[=yes|no]|[=1|0]
   resizable[=yes|no]|[=1|0]
   width=pixels
   height=pixels

I was affraid to get this kind of answer... Although well documented, this was not the question. I stated clearly that I want to open the FIRST page with predefined mesures, NOT the second or third. Can you review this?

Guess the only way to do this is to write an ActiveX component that uses the MoveWindow api function. But then you will have annoying security warnings etc.

you can change current windows size(for NN4 or IE4), below.


<HTML>
<HEAD>
<SCRIPT Language="JavaScript">
<!--
scrWidth = screen.width;
scrHeight = screen.height;
window.resizeTo(300,300);
window.moveTo(scrWidth/2-150, scrHeight/2-150);
// -->
</SCRIPT>
</HEAD>


<BODY>
</BODY>
</HTML>

thanks.
