Javascript Question

How to display text in the browser status bar?

How can we change the text displayed in the browser status bar using JavaScript (or jQuery)?

Answer Source

jQuery is not necessary to do this:

<script>
function writetostatus(input){
    window.status=input
    return true
}
</script>

However, most newer browsers prevent you from setting the text in the status bar from JavaScript.
