Hi there.

If i have 2 frames, and then click on a link in one of the frames.
Is there any way (without using java) that i can get the browser to read a new page in BOTH frames? (Not the same page in both frames)
A friend of mine says it's possible, but another says it's not!
Who shal i beleave?

Regards. Martin Møller.

Hi,
Happy new year.

If i understand well,when you click one link, to open the page without frames,to a single window.
Am i wrong?

What i want is when i click a link in a frame, the browser should read 2 different pages into the two different frames.

I take it with Java, you mean JavaScript.

You'll have to create one frameset file for every file. Let me explain:
<A HREF="products.htm" TARGET="_parent">Products</A>
<A HREF="introduction.htm" TARGET="_parent">Introduction</A>

products.htm contains like this:
<FRAMESET COLS="200,*">
<FRAME SRC="products_menu.htm" NAME="menu">
<FRAME SRC="products_main.htm" NAME="main">
</FRAMESET>

introduction.htm:
<FRAMESET COLS="200,*">
<FRAME SRC="introduction_menu.htm" NAME="menu">
<FRAME SRC="introduction_main.htm" NAME="main">
</FRAMESET>

It's very simple :
------------------
this is the simple javascript that do it :
<!--
// SetFrames JavaScript Meir Faraj
// e-mail : faraj@beitza.jct.ac.il

function SetFrames(Frame1,url1,Frame2,url2) {

      parent.frames[Frame1].location.href=url1;
      parent.frames[Frame2].location.href=url2;
}
//-->

If you don't understand how to use this or wanna more info : let me know...
