By default, the IE status bar will shows the HyperLink if you move the mouse over a Link, also, it will shows the executing status like
"Opening [url=http://www.javaranch.com/index.jsp".]http://www.javaranch.com/index.jsp".[/url]

I am trying to read this message into my variable,
AGAIN, I need to READ it from the system status bar, but not
WRITE to the bar as the simple -- window.status="my own message"

My test code:
---------------------------------------------------------------
*html*
*s c r i p t language="j a v a s c r i p t"*
function howStatusBarMsg(){
var message=window.status;
alert(message);
}
*/s c r i p t*
*body*
*a href="http://www.javaranch.com/index.jsp" on M ouseOver="showStatusBarMsg()"*Link*/a*
*/body*
*/html*
---------------------------------------------------------------
But it doesn't work, any hints?

Why do a dumb thing like this? because there is something happen very weird on my page, I need to track where it goes,step by step

This forum doesn't allow the scripting, I have to change the <> to **

not sure why you would want to do it, but I do not think you can do it.
