How do i check a PopUp Windows Properties once it loads?

I need to check the width, height, top position , left position, scrollbars and resizable values that are passed from the window.open function that launches this window.

How do I do this?

Checking if scroll is enabled and resize is disabled is most important.

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<HTML>
<HEAD>
<TITLE> New Document </TITLE>
<SCRIPT type=text/javascript>
function WinParams()
{
  if( //Verify widht, height and other things here)
  {
    alert("Valid Window");
  } else
{
    alert("Invalid Window");
}
}
</script>

</HEAD>

<body onload="self.focus();WinParams();">

</BODY>
</HTML>

Can you tell us why you need to know?

It is not trivial to find these values unless you pass them in the url or have them as settings in the parent:

parent:

popResize = true
popScroll = false
function openWin() {
  window.open('test.html','newwin','scrollbars='+popScript+',resizable='+popResize)
}


child:

if (parent.popResize).....

Actually, i'll have a Window.open code that'll be installed on other sites, but which will draw data from our servers.
It'll be easy for users to change the size of the window and also enable or disable the scrollbars and tool bars and make things look odd.
Thats why i intend checking if the window is of a particular size and has scroll bars and is not resizable.

Sound to me you are better off designing your page so it can be resized and scrolled and NOT look odd when that happens...
