Popup windows show status bar

P: n/a
When I launch a popup window from our application, the status bar now
shows up for some reason. I explicitly turn it off in the code that
launches it. This problem just started happening after our app has
been around for more than a year. It may be because of I.E. SP2, but
I'm not sure yet. If anyone has experienced this problem, I would
appreciate some help. Thanks, Terry.

You'll need to ask this in a client-side newsgroup since it has nothing to
do with asp (you could reproduce this problem with a .htm page, correct?
Nothing to do with asp). The .scripting groups will handle client-side code
questions. Or you could try one of the groups with "dhtml" in their names.

Unfortunately I do not know the answer to your question.

This is Microsoft's idea of a joke. XP Service Pack 2 added this little
feature to prevent people from spoofing addresses (e.g. the phishing scams).
The *really* stupid thing is that the size of these bars are taken away from
your X Y sizes, e.g. if the bar's 16px and you asked for 100px high, it's
now 100-16=84px.

Therefore you've got to re-visit all your code and detect the browser so you
can allow for Microsoft's status bar. I've got to re-visit dozens of pages
to fix this and I'm not in the least bit amused.

Some people in the IE group have a lot in common with Dyson; they never
stop sucking.

Don't you just love it. I think the whole idea of security should be addressed this way. If you want a bike that everyone loves; has a bell; a basket; cool gold-plated handle-bars; nice tread action pedals; Michelin tires; reflecting spokes; an odometer;... then you set yourself off to likely be ripped off. So the best bike is one that has slightly flat tires; crooked handle-bars; a stick for whacking people out of the way; hollow pedals;... I believe that is Microsoft's answer to the security risks in Windows. Make it so dysfunctional that no one would want to use it. Sound like a plan?
