When you go to certain websites, it will automatically open a new window and hide tool, menu, status, and address bars.  How do I do this in a browser I created using the Microsoft Internet Control?  I got the browser to create a new instance of the window but I do not know how to make it so that it hides certain bars and resizes correctly.

That would most likely be done in Javascript.  Good luck.

When you create the new instance of the Window, you can also set a series of parameters to enable or disable creatin features such as menu bar, status bar, tool bars, etc.

The appropriate javascript method is:
  window.open(<Source>,<WindowName>,<Options>)

sample:
  window.open("mysource.htm","Window1","width=310,height=400,left=0,top=0,toolbar=no,menubar=no");


Possible options are:
dependent= yes|no
height= [Pixel]
hotkeys= yes|no
innerHeight= [Pixel]
innerWidth= [Pixel]
left= [Pixel]
location= yes|no
menubar= yes|no
resizable= yes|no
screenX= [Pixel]
screenY= [Pixel]
scrollbars= yes|no
status= yes|no
toolbar= yes|no
top= [Pixel]
width= [Pixel]


However it is maybe better to post further question on this to the appropriate javascript or ASP forum.

After seeing this response, I looked at the control again and I found events(?) like OnStatusBar or OnMenuBar which defined if these items would show.  I tried them and they worked perfectly.  Thanks.
