Maintain minimum width and height of browser window when resizing


I want resize browser window to 1000x700 pixel by default on load of html page. Also whenever you resize window the minimum dimension 1000x700 should be maintained. I tried

window.onresize = function(){

but in IE8 its not working giving error "Access denied", however in FF its work fine.

Please guide me with some alternate solution that can be handled using JavaScript

on the onresize event of the window you can check the screenX and screenY properties of the window.
if it is lesser than certain value, invoke window.resizeTo(minwidth, minheight);

Hi gurvinder372;

Thanks for quick response. You code perfectly works, when i tried on other's machine. So onlaod event of body browser resizes to given dimension. But when onresize is getting fired with resizeto function IE8 gives "Access denied" error. Is it because of Ie not allowing this methode to execurte?

Yes, thats what is seems and the expert-exchange link i posted earlier seems to confirm that.
However, i have noticed that on my machine on IE8
1) when i click on the maximize button, this code works
2) when i resize from left side, this code works
3) when i resize from right side, this code does not works
