Hi all,
I want to change some property of the browser through javascript. for example to clear the header and footer values in File -> page setup to blank. This way when i will print the page through javascript's window.print(), nothing will be printed in header or footer. This is very urgent and i will oblige all who will attempt to solve this.
Thank you in advance.

I don't believe you can do this, for security reasons.

Thankx chris,
I have a javascript through which u can change the default home page property of browser (in Tools -> Internet option). If this can be done then why not the footer values in Page setup.

Again, it's a security issue. A remote developer should not gain control over my browser.
And as for changing the homepage, I resent someone trying to change my preferences. But maybe that's just me.
