Possible to change popup attribute from within?

P: n/a
Is it possible to change a popup window's 'resizable attribute from within
the popup window itself?

I create the popup window with the window.open(....) function and use a
resizable=no parameter. But within the popup window itself, would it be
possible to then change the resizable property to enable the window to be
resized?

Many thanks for your expertise!

Then don't do that. If the content fits the window, the user will
most likely not resize the window. It the content doesn't fit (and
that can happen due to circumstances outside your control), he *needs*
to be able to resize it.

Thanks. The reason for my question is this:

I have a hyperlink in the popup window that, if clicked, I would like to
display in the same window, however - I want the hyperlinked display window
to be resizable. (I don't want to popup yet another window for the hyperlink
in the popup)

Thanks!
