CFLOCATION just sends a 30n status header to the browser, which tells it to go to a different URL.
If you need to monkey with the user's browser (bleah), then you need to do that via the doc the CFLOCATION goes to, but via where it's coming from.
IE: if you've got <cflocation url="foo.cfm>, then you need code in foo.cfm the monkey with stuff.
Thanks for your post.
While I've found a way to get at the statusbar on a Netscape browser using a signed script (NN4+):
I couldn't find any way to do from within Internet Explorer.
Do you have a way???
Thanks again for your help.
I have no idea. I would never attempt to mess with a person's browser like that, and get slightly annoyed when other people do it to mine. How a user's browser is configured is their business, not the business of the web page being rendered in it.
I have to agree, trying to mess about with peoples browsers is very 2001, and I'd put hiding status bars in the same basket as fullscreening my browser for me as some tosspot designer has decided that'll look better.
For what purpose do you actually want to hide it? Most browsers still use it to display SSL info, I'd be extremely suspicious of a site that tried to hide that.
That is the same thing than Danny Goodman said in his book and I would agree because I feel the same way.
I would have only done it on a Report not a normal page and it was a client requirement, but I've found another way to resolve the issue.
Thanks for you input.
