I'm using FrontPage 2002 & I'm trying create a page that when opened will only open to a specified size & have no visible menu's or scroll bars.  I'd appreciate any help with this.

Hi there.

You do this from the link to the page.

Put this little JavaScript in your <head> section:

<script language="JavaScript">

<!--//BEGIN Script

function new_window(url) {

link = window.open(url,"Link","toolbar=0,location=0,directories=0,status=0,menubar=0,scrollbars=1,resizable=1,width=600,height=500,left=40,top=50");

}
//END Script-->
</script>

Then you can call your links like this:

<a href="javascript:new_window('http://www.canada411.sympatico.ca/')">Canada 411</a>

Set a feature to 0 if you want to disable it.  Change the width & height parameters to the size of window you want to open and the left/top to where you want it to appear on the screen.

I should explain a little bit more about what the final outcome will be.  I'm trying to get a cd I'm creating to "autorun" a .html file set to a paticular size w/no menues showing.  From this .html page you will have the option of opening the website from the cd-rom or installing an .exe file.

Aye, there's the rub.

AFAIK, Unless you have your autorun hitting a link, you cannot control how the browser opens.  That is a user setting.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

how are you calling the html from the auto run?  Maybe we can work with that (but I don't know much about autoruns so bare with me.)
