Hi,

Is there a function in Netscape that works like showmodaldialog in IE?

If no, how do I solve this problem?

FYI, I intend to make a modal dialog box that can contain HTML page. Users can not access the background window until they press the button on the dialog.
I can do this by using showmodaldialog in IE, but this doesn't work in Netscape.

I really appreciate if you can help me.


Best regards,


Zairil

Netscape has no equivalent.

What you can do is open a new window using the window.open and check that when the main window receives the focus that whether the "other" window is open or not and set the focus to that window again. :-/
