Popup Windows: status

status bars in popup windows The status bar is where the browser displays messages for the user. For example, most browsers display the URL of a link when the mouse passes over the link. By default popups don't have status bars. To set a popup with a status bar set status to yes in the open() command. For example, this command in the popup script creates a popup that has a status bar:

window.open(href, windowname, 'width=400,height=150,status=yes,scrollbars=yes');

this popup.
