javascript window.status.visible method in IE6

P: n/a
Hi,

I am trying to determine whether the status bar is visible or not .. is
there a method to check the state? I did a google search and found
info re: window.status.visible but it returns undefined?! Has it been
deprecated?

Thanks for any info!

Cheers!
M.

<script type='text/javascript'>
if ( window.confirm("Do you see the Status Bar?") ) {
document.write("<p>Visible.");
} else {
document.write("<p>Not visible.");
}
</script>

Note, requires the wetware API, an optional
plug-in for web surfers. ;-)

window.status is a (proprietary) string property to reflect the contents of
the status bar if previously changed. Of course a String object does not
have a visible property. You are looking for window.statusbar.visible, but
only in Gecko-based browsers, so probably not in IE (see MSDN Library).
