<a href="javascript:doThat();"
onmouseover="window.status='no link';return true;">do that</a>

With recent browsers that can no more work.

Hi,

I think you r not getting my question. I want status bar to be
displayed which is having progress bar. But i don't want url to be
displayed or javascript call to be displayed on status bar.

if you know then let me know abt it.

Ah, I see. You are referring to *my* status bar. Sorry, I like it
the way it is.

See the FAQ, as recommended.

However, it can be argued that it would be a Good Thing that users see at a
glance that the pseudo-link they are about to click is only a pseudo-link
and does not necessarily cause navigation. Insofar I can see nothing wrong
in using both the href="javascript:..." and the `onclick' attribute in links
*that are created with scripting*, whereas the `onclick' code would return
`false' to prevent the default action of the pseudo-link.
