Using the "OnLoad" command in a FP98 enabled site, a "pop-up" window is opened with a series of text hyperlinks - Is it possible, and if so, how, to open the target page of these hyperlinks within the "main" frame of the original framed environment site.
Many Thanks - Chris

Hi Chris...

Just so that I understand you...the page you want the links to show up in is framed?  What are the frame names and which one do you want the "new" info to appear in?

Many thanks for the prompt response

The text links would be in the pop-up window, and when the user clicks on on eof these i wanted the target page to open up in the main frame of the site from which the pop-up was initiated - Does this help?

Try this:

<a href="javascript: window.opener.parent.rightframename.location = 'http://www.yahoo.com';">change right hand frame</a>

Can't remember whether the parent needs to be in there or not.

Hi,

Tried the code you suggested but alas I could not get it to function, however it spured me on to try a couple of things and what did work was the following (This is in the Pop-up window)

<head>
<Script Language=javascript type="text/javascript">
<!-- Hide script from old browsers
function updateParent(newURL) {
opener.document.location = newURL
}

// End hiding script from old browsers -->
</Script>
</head>
<Body><a href="javascript:updateParent('demo2.htm')">change right hand frame</a>

I am sure that if I persevere with your orignal code I will be able to get it to work with a single JS call - I am however indebted to you for your interest in assisting me solve my problem - You are a star!

Thanks again

Chris
