how to open a brower window with no menu bars from Flex 3

I can open a new web browser window with:
var thePetPhoto:URLRequest = new URLRequest(serverPath+"/PetPhotos/sendFTPPet.php");
var variables:URLVariables = new URLVariables();

variables.petID = myPetData.pet_id;
variables.petName = myPetData.pet_Name;
                              
thePetPhoto.data = variables;
navigateToURL(thePetPhoto,"_blank");

BUT
I can not find a way to open the window without menu bars and address bar.
I can do it from a html page with javascript document.open but not from Flex 3.

Thanks Rick

My best tip would be to use the Flex ExternalInterface and to user JavaScript commands to open the popup:

This is part of a large application and I would really not like to uses javascript in the main container html page.

BTW the first link using getURL only works with Flex 2 and the second page does not seem to have any real help, but thanks for trying.

Ok .. sorry for the Flex2 link .... think this will help:
http://www.flepstudio.org/forum/tutorials/894-actionscript-calls-javascript-externalinterface-class-flash-cs3.html

But it still seems that you would have to add a small piece of code in your html-wrapper of include a small JavaScript file to it.

Nice job that's what I needed. Did have to uses the javascript in the container but with some modifications it is working great.

Thanks
