Hi. I am trying to get a modalDialog with no titlebar in it. I am using showModalDialog method. I don't need to have a titlebar into that modal. I want to know some way to do that using javascript. As we can remove status part from the modalDialog, is there any way we can completely omit the titlebar also?? i want to do that because i don't want user to close the dialog by clicking on the close(X) button on the right corner. They will be closing the dialog through the cancel button that i have on my modeldialog. Please help with it. Thanks.

Don't use showModalDialog(). It's IE-only. Try the DHTML Window script here at DD instead. You can remove the titlebar from it and stop it losing focus without too much trouble.

Not really, the title bar is now a security feature:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/workshop/author/dhtml/reference/methods/showmodelessdialog.asp

That's MS page on modal dialogue, no mention of removing the title bar. You may be able to remove the title bar in some browsers using title=0 with the window.open() method but, most browsers will not allow it.
