Could anyone tell how to hide the addressbar and toolbar of the current browser window(IE) using javascript. I am able to do it for new window using window.open().

the below Link can give you a clear idea of the attributes and values of Window.open();
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/workshop/author/dhtml/reference/methods/open_0.asp

To Hide the AddressBar :
window.open("Sample.htm",null,
"height=200,width=400,status=yes,toolbar=no,menubar=no,location=no");

premnath,
Rose said "Current window" and they could do it with the "window.open()"!

Rose,
You can not remove toolbars from the current window. Only way is through a pop up window.

Thank you verymuch Premnath and Eric. As Eric said I was able to do it using window.open already. But the popup blocker was the one which I prefered to get rid off and also it was better if I could do it with the current window. When I try to close the parent window after opening the popup, both windows are getting closed sometimes. And also I am not able to maximise the new window.

The code I tried is,

window.opener=self;

window.open('b.html','null','width=1000,height=750,top=0,left=0,toolbar=no,scrollbars=yes,location=no,resizable=yes');

window.resizeTo(screen.width,screen.height);

self.close();

Could anyone suggest a solution?

How unfriendly.

What is it you are really trying to accomplish? Aside from annoying your users.

Rose and prem,
Welcome to JavaRanch!

We're pleased to have you here with us in the HTML/Javascript forum, but there
are a few rules that need to be followed, and one is that proper names are
required. Please take a look at the
JavaRanch Naming Policy and
adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.

You can change it here
