Is there a way to resize an IE modal dialog window once a page is displayed? Here's the scenario:
I have an application that displays a prompt for user input. Once the user selects the desired parameters and clicks Submit, a PDF report file is generated and also displayed in the window.
The problem is that there a few parameters so a small dialog is appropriate to prompt the user. However, the report should be displayed in a larger window. I would like to include something like an invocation to resizeTo(800,600) in the unonload event for the first page but this does not seem to work.
The person I inherited this code from suggested writing code to close the initial prompt window and immediately re-open another. It seems there should be an easier way. Any ideas?
Note my company is an all-IE shop so browser compatibility is not an issue.
