FrontPage 2000 on Window 98se

I have a page at http://johnwille.com  I would like to make it so that when a person clicks on the nav buttons in the "content" frame, the "main" frame changes as normal and the "content" frame chagnes to display a yellow button for the page the visitor is currently viewing.  Does this have to be a whole new page, or is there a way to code in the change so that if jobs.htm is displayed in the "main" frame then btnjobs_ylw.gif is displayed in the "contents" frame in place of btnjob_1.gif?

Thanks,
Dan

This can be done (I'm pretty sure) but we have to use JavaScript.  

Are you ready for that?  You mentioned in your last question that you are a WYSIWYG guy....we need to delve into html mode for this.

Looks like I'm in for it, huh?  Excellent, I was wondering about Javascript.

Do you want me to give you some help with it?  I'm curious because people usually don't grade me until I've actually helped them  8-)

The script we will use to do this is from:

http://javascript.internet.com/navigation/change-2-frames.html

We will need to modify it a fair bit...but it is a starting point.

I already have the frames named, so I don?t need the first segment of code that the webpage has.  Here is the JavaScript from the second segment.

<!-- Begin
function loadFrames(frame1,page1,frame2,page2) {
eval("parent."+frame1+".location='"+page1+"'");
eval("parent."+frame2+".location='"+page2+"'");
}
// End -->

I think this one has me completely befuddled.  If I didn?t know what it was supposed to do I don?t think I would get it.  I think I understand how the links in the html are working, but the JavaScript itself I don?t get.

I am guessing that the link to load Jobs/Jobs.htm in the main frame, and LftJobs.htm in the contents from should look like;

<a href ="javascript:loadFrames('contents', 'LftJobs.htm', 'main', '/Jobs/Jobs.htm')">Load Page 1 & Page 2</a><br>

Perfect!

I knew you could do it!  

Now just put your code for the rollover buttons in place of the text for the anchor, then you are set to roll(over)!  ;-)
