I have a frameset: top,main and banner html pages. I have an image in top.html that changes on certain onmouseover events. Can I reference the image in top.html from an onmouseover event in banner.html?

hope this question makes sense.

Yep:

Example:

parent.page_name.images["imagename"].src = 'foo.gif'

please change "page_name" for the name of the page you give at the frameset and "imagename" for the real image name

I cannot get this to work.

my index.html page has one frameset:

<html>
<frameset cols=25%,*>
      <frame name="page1" src="page1.html">
      <frame name="page2" src="page2.html">
</frameset>
</html>

the code on page1.html is:

<html>
<body>
   <img id=me src="button1.gif" onclick=parent.page2.images["fill"].src="button2.gif">
</body>
</html>

the code on page2.html is:
<html>
<body>      
      <img id=fill src="button1.jpg">
</body>
</html>

This should work but it doesn't any ideas?

<img id=me src="button1.gif" onclick='parent.page2.images["fill"].src="button2.gif"'>

But this'll only work with IE. For compatibility with NN you should instead use:

<a href="#" onclick='parent.page2.images["fill"].src="button2.gif"; return false;'><img id=me src="button1.gif"></a>

or even

<a href='javascript:parent.page2.images["fill"].src="button2.gif";return false;'><img id=me src="button1.gif"></a>


Good luck,
CJ

the code on page2.html should be:

<html>
<body>
<img id=fill name="fill" src="button1.jpg">
</body>
</html>

PS: Note the "NAME" tag

I still could not for the life of me get that to work. I amended the code to read:

onclick=parent.page2.fill.src="button2.jpg"

I have spent too long on this so I will simply use that method.

But thanks anyway.
