Open Window w/out Title Bar

I use the following javascript function to open a popup window:

/* Open window*/
 var windowHandle = '';
 function popOpen(url,name,attributes) {
 windowHandle = window.open(url,name,attributes);
}

and then open the window like so:
<a href="javascript:popOpen('/folder/showImage.exe/pdf?id=<%=IDNumber%>','Image','toolbar=no,resizable=yes,scrollbars=yes,left=0,top=0,screenX=0,screenY=0,width='+w+',height='+h+'');">

The contents of the popup window are created dynamically but the title bar displays the url of the image displayed in the popup window.

I cannot set the title in the actual popup window. How can I open that window by passing the title or at least not displaying the url. Full screen window is not an option.

Thanks!

1. you can only remove titlebars if you use HTA which will tell the user to open or download
2. open an html page and pass the image to it instead
3. change to

<a href="#"
onClick=popOpen('/folder/showImage.exe/pdf?id=<%=IDNumber%>','Image','toolbar=no,resizable=yes,scrollbars=yes,left=0,top=0,screenX=0,screenY=0,width='+w+',height='+h+'');
return false">

to make it not try to follow the link

Thanks for responding. I tried suggestion 3 but the popup window still displays the URL in the title bar. To be more specific, I am not actually opening an image but making a call to a cgi which builds the page on the fly and then displays the image...

After speaking with my programmer, he informs me that I am not opening a window with an image but I am actually opening a window with a PDF... gadzooks!

yeah... same difference

to show the pdf you will need
<html>
<head>
<title>No pdf here</title>
</head>
<script>
document.write('<frameset rows="100%,*"><frame src="'+unescape(location.search.substring(1))+'"></frameset>')
</script>
</html>

and use

/* Open window*/
 var windowHandle = '';
 function popOpen(url,name,attributes) {
 windowHandle = window.open("showpdf.html?"+escape(url),name,attributes);
}

this will happen as javascript submission is always different from html form submission. so if use a button of type submit and use it to pass the parameter then it will work

I have been sitting on a thread with the same problem for some time now. I tried mplungjan's idea but it won't accept the +escape(url) for me. The page doesn't load.
I don't mean to be rude here but if anybody's got any good ideas my thread is worth 500 points and can be found at:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web/Web_Languages/JavaScript/Q_21220517.html

I hope we can work this out together.

Cheers.
