You should ask this in the JavaScript section...

I don't know too much javascript but I think you can get the screen size using
Screen.Width & Screen.Hieght
and you can set the window width/height

with that you should be able to min/max the window, but you can't disable closing of the window, after all it is the clients browser. they have the right to close it.

  Sorry.

you can probably rig it so that if they close it it will re open a new windo with the same url.

Don't bother asking in the JavaScript section, you can't do this.

you can open a window in  full screen (work in IE only I think)
but then it disables the resize as well

anyhow here is a very good tutorial on full screen :

you can't disable them.  but if you open a modal dialog window (works only in IE) you won't get any of them in that window.  a hack, yes, but maybe what you're looking for anyway.

I'm actually glad that the answer is "you can't", since I'd be rather angry if a web page author should have any say in how my own operating system should behave.

Hi,
  I think U can do That!!!
  when opening a window just give "fullscreen=yes" property just as u give "toolbar=yes". this will load ur screen full and u cannot minimize,maximize or close it or resize it. u can not even shift focus. U can close it only by pressing alt+f4 or using taskmanager(ctrl+alt+del). U can change focus by using window key on keyboard.
         It works with IE.I think it works with netscape also.

Luv,
Indian

I think you are wrong.

Doing full screen and toolbor=yes does not do what you stated.

Hi,
  It is working for me in IE.
    May be in Netscape, it may not work.
But U can use setResize(false) function for Netscape.
   it works with Netscape but not with IE.Don't forget to put "Javascript1.2"
for this setresize function.

Try the simple code below for fullscreen option:

<html>
<script>
open("","mywindow","fullscreen=yes")
</script>
</html>

This loads a window with fullscreen
Luv,
Indian
