Is it possible to resize frames using an onClick event?  I am using Javascript 1.2, and I want to use a button on a main frame to resize another frame.  I have three frames, a top frame and two bottom frames, left and right.  I want to use a button on the top frame to minimize the left frame and maximize the right frame.  Is this possible?

The easiest way to achieve this would be to have 2 seperate framesets.

The main frameset having a top and a bottom frame. The top frame would have as its default opening page the same as you would put in your existing setup i.e. the 'main page' with the buttons on it.

The bottom frame (instead of having 2 frames at the bottom would have only 1 at this time) would have as its default page another frameset with 2 frames, a left and a right frame. This frameset would have as its default pages the bottom left and bottom right pages that you mentioned in your original setup.

When you want to minimize one frame and maximize the other you would simply replace the frameset in the bottom frame of the main frameset with the page that you whish maximized and vise versa.

The setup for this would be:-

Frameset1.html(main frameset) contains 2 frames top(main page) & bottom.
The bottom frame would contain Frameset2.html.

Frameset2.html would contain 2 frames left and right. the left frame would contain the page that you would have in the bottom left frame in your old setup. The right would contain the bottom right.

To minimize the "bottom left" frame you would:
replace the page in frameset1.html's bottom frame, from frameset2.html to the page that you have in frameset2.htmls' left frame.

Hope all this makes sense! if not post a  comment.

Cheers,

H.

I believe this will work.  However, I was looking at the rest of the page, to make sure that the rest of the scripting is not affected by changing the frames.

I was trying to use outerwidth, etc. to change the existing frames, but couldn't get that to work.

Thanks for the help.
