can any one tell me how to avoid displaying url in the new window?

i have opened a window using"index.jsp?data="+data_value+"","main","scrollbars=yes, resizable=yes, top=100,left=100,width=800, height=400"); method.

In the new window, the url is displayed on the top with parameters, can any one suggest me some ideas for removing the url from the top.

If you do not want to display parameters, you can not do a get, you need to do a post. Since you are doing a pop up window, you are sort of limited on it.

You can look around the web for examples of using a form to post to a pop up window.

Hello Abhishek,

take a look at this page. It has an example of how to post a form to a popup.

There's of course another solution, which is really ugly . You can create a page that takes the parameters from a get request, put them in hidden fields in a form, then use javascript to automatically submit this form to the real page you want. This way you can open the dummy page in a popup, and it will submit the parameters to the real page you want. As I said, it's ugly, but you can use that if you face problems with posting to the popup directly (which you shouldn't ).

I agree. Here's the link:
