creating popup child window

Specs: windows xp, 512

I am working on to create on online medical database program. what I want to do is when the main window opens up, two popup child windows will open up but they will not show on windows taskbar and also will close when the main window is closed and also pop up software will not block the popup windows.
For example: if anybody uses AOL to connect to the internet, after the connection is astablished it opens couple of windows under the main window which can be moved or closed or minimized, maximized....

I would really appreciate if anybody could help me out with this.
thank you

"I am working on to create on online medical database program."

If you mean that it is a web application, then I don't believe it is possible to do what you are asking because of security constraints. AOL doesn't have the same problem because it is a windows aplpication that is installed on the user's computer. The only way I could think of doing it with a web application would be to create some sort of activeX or Java program that runs on the client computer. This would require them to to install the software on their computer. You could prompt them to install it the first time they visit the site.

Michael, thanks for your reply. Atleast is there any way to hide the popup window from windows task bar . I know you can do it with javascript for netscape navigator by dependent commmand. Is there anything for Internet explorer.

Not that I know of. And I would highly doubt it since it could be considered a security risk.

Would having these popup as elements in the parent window be an option - such as floating layers? Just a thought. You could even get fancy and make them "dockable" along any of the edges.
