Deactivate maximize button

I am opening a window through javascript using the below statement

w1=window.open('xxx',w1, 'nomaximize;scrolling=no,....');

when I try this program in netscape bydefault the maximize button will be deactivated, whereas in IE even after specifying the window feature as nomaximize or maximize=no , we can still maximize it.

Is there any other way to deactivate the maximize button for IE browser, which is also applicable to Netscape.


Thanks in Advance.

You can always just specify resizable=0.... then they can't resize OR maximize.

no, specify "resizable=0" just can avoid resize, but the minimize and maximize can work at least in IE.

xyzffff, you are right.  I hadn't checked it...  and I don't use IE much...  Why can't the browsers get along??  Every time something works great in only Netscape, I'll find something that works great in only IE...

Oh well...  I can't think of anything else right now, sorry nirmalas.

I have a script that constantly puts focus on the page so even if it does get minimized, It *should* go back up, I will look at the script and tell you either way, K?

hey nirmalas,

i think i have the answer to your problem. in IE to display a window without the maximize and minimize buttons use the window.showModalDialog() function.

<html>
<head>
<script language="javascript">
function testdialog() {
    w_call = window.showModalDialog( "dummy.html", "",
             "dialogWidth=200,dialogHeight=200") ;
}
</script>
</head>
<body onload="testdialog()">
</body>
</html>

First let me thank you for your answer.

Its true that showmodeldialog() will open a window which cannot be maximized. But if window has 2 frames, then we cant refer or refresh them by giving parent.frames[0]..... etc., . I am creating this window to display a game, and it has got 2 frames where often the control goes to other document and gets back to parent file.

so....

i've tried experimenting on frames within a modal dialog box and i found no problems referring to the parent frames or the other child frame. and also, you're follow up question on frames is somewhat not clear, can you describe clearly.
