Make a site chromeless
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
First page opens up a popup without menubar etc, then the popup closes it's caller. Any popup has a reference to it's caller, accesible via 'window.opener'. So just calling window.opener.close() should do the trick.
As far as I know, you cannot alter a windows appearance after it has been created.
If, for some reason, the above only has to work in IE, then you might consider using a .hta extension, and thus writing a HTML application. This will start in a window with just a title bar straight away.
Sweet, sounds like a neat trick.
Problem is it needs to work for people with JS turned off. One other idea has come to mind--any way to trap the "buttonBack.click" event and negate it?
Without JS? No chance.
You best try your luck in the HTML forum, but I'm about 100% sure it cannot be done in pure HTML...unless it only has to work for IE, see description above.
Ok, I was not clear. This is kind of an added bonus, but the site still needs to fundamentally work without JS.
EG: Mary comes to the site to register. Mary's has JS turned on and her back button is disabled. She can register just fine without it.
Jim comes to the site to register. Jim has JS turned off, and his back button is enabled. But Jim follows our instructions not to hit back and regesters just fine.
