Frames! Brain Fart Need Help

I have a index page with 3 frames all named.  Events, Pic and Description.  

What i want to do in Dreamweaver is click on the link in events and then 2 pages load one in pic frame and one in description frame.  However i can only seem to see the way to open one.

Use a link looking like this:

<a href="javascript:;" onClick=parent.Pic.location='pic_page.html';parent.Description.location='description_page.html';>

I am hopefully looking for a solution that wont require me to code it...there are like 100+ events.

MHQCommented:
uhmm... I'm not sure how you mean "not code it"... there must be some way you separe those 100+ events. How?
Cause if you want to load a specific page, you'll need to specify it somewhere...

In Dreamweaver it is point and click...that way when i am done others will be able to modify it easier.

MHQCommented:
I still feel uncertain about what you mean. Could you clarify what you mean with "point and click"?

If you are reffering to the way you can choose target in DW by geting a targeting-sight and then clicking the target you want, it is not doable.

Yes that is what i mean.  You would think that what I want to do is something that other sites would do.

Could adobe golive perform this operation?

0
 
MHQCommented:
Adobe golive can not do this either. You will have to use my above code by pasting it into the code window of dreamweaver, it's an easy enough solution and won't take much more time to do than "point-'n-click".  This is the way other sites using this works.

I agree with MHQ, however, his script won't work with some of the newer browsers.

His script:
a href="javascript:;" onClick=parent.Pic.location='pic_page.html';parent.Description.location='description_page.html';>

Should be changed to:

a href="javascript:;" onClick=parent.frames[Pic].location='pic_page.html';parent.frames[Description].location='description_page.html';>

This way your script will work with all browsers, although, you will still have to manually enter this information.

MHQCommented:
Thank you for the update of my code Dionysus but shouldn't it be frames['Pic'] not frames[Pic] since it's a string and not a var?

msunder: add frames[...] to your code as above, possibly with the '' added.

DionysusCommented:
WOOPS...  you're right.. :)

Final answer:

<a href="javascript:;" onClick=parent.frames['Pic'].location='pic_page.html';parent.frames['Description'].location='description_page.html';>

Damn coffee isn't strong enough! :)

Thanks..

Msunder... give him the points!

you may also want to try somehow adding this with the replace function built into Dreamweaver...
ctrl+H gives you the window to do a massive source code replace, but be careful and be 100% sure before you do it.

costelloCommented:
msunder,

Can you indicate how to split points? You indicated to give 1/2 of points to each participants, but I see three participants here?

OK, I am force accepting Dionysus' comment for half of the 150 points. The other 75 points have been refunded to your account, msunder, but you still need to open a dummy question, 'For MHQ' worth 75 points to complete the point split, and then wait for MHQ to answer or comment in your new dummy question and accept his answer.

Hey there!

Been away for a while so I havn't been able to post in this thread. I appreciate the kind offer Dionysus but I must say that I'm happy costello was faster since I believe you earn some credit too!

I'm glad we could help you msunder!

In order to not forget this question, I will post the 75 points for MHQ myself.

Here it is

msunder, you don't need to post another question anymore. I have adjusted your point total.

Thanks
