Opening a "minimal" browser / hiding url variables - Macromedia ColdFusion

Hi I have a largish application that relys on url variables being passed around between pages. I would prefer it if these variable were hidden from the user. Is there any way of doing this? I'm guessing that one solution would be to open a child window that doesn't have any controls on it (such as back button, and no address bar). Thanks Nigel...

    HI,

    How about session variables? Client Variables? Hidden Form fields?

    yes, I am totally uncertain of your inquiry - most variables are never shown to the user.

    There is no way to hide URL variables as by definition they are in the URL
    which you cannot hide. If you really must hide them then as WestSide suggests
    then you must scope them in another way. The power of URL variables is allowing
    users to bookmark pages with dynamic content, like search results.

    Hi WestSide. I don't have access to Application.cfm, so session variables are out.

    Hi. I was thinking of sites such as banks (UK ones anyway) which hide url variables by opening child windows that don't have address bars.

    How on earth have you not got access to the Application.cfm?

    You do not need to have access to the Application.cfm you can code the
    cfapplication tag into every page yourself.

    To open child windows you need to use Javascript, but there is no way to
    really hide URL variables as they will always be able to check your source HTML.
