I need to know if the client can receive the error code 404(Page not found) in order to manipulate it by programing.<BR>thanks
what?<BR><BR>your question makes no sense to me. try again.
the thing is that I need to know if I can send a url to a function as a parameter and the function will return a value indicating if that page will return a 404 error code or any http code.
no. at least, not reliably across platforms. in IE on windows you can use XMLHTTP from the browser, though security restrictions may even prevent this.
Maybe you could use a 100% hidden frame. And open that URL in the hidden frame. And then, after it loads (or doesn't load) you could examine the contents of the frame to see if you got a 404 error.<BR><BR>
what is XMLHTTP?...is a Method or how can I use that function?
