I am looking to implement a popup window that
when a user dbl-clks a small image a larger one
is displayed in the window. I use the DW open
window in browser and it works fine, but lacks
two features that I would like to have int the
popup window. They are;

1. Surpress the URL field at the top of the Window.
Checking or un-checking the "location: checkbox
in the DW config dialogue seems like it should
address this, but has no effect on the window

2. The window always runs on top of the parent
window. It comes up by default that way, but a
if the user inadvertantly clicks in the parent window
while the large window is displayed, the parent
window hides the large popup (which is still up
but hidden). If the user then tries to click on the
small image to bring up the large one, it will do
nothing because the large window is already up,
but underneath.

Thanks,

Dan

UR,

This is a really cool tool. Got it all hooked up
and did a little hybriding to it and it works great!
If it works as well over all popular browsers, I will
be thrilled. Their forum for it helped a lot for the
customization parts I did. Highly recommend it;
I will use it on many sites.

Thanks,

Dan
