Hi,

I have to html pages the first page has links that shoud be opened on the second page.

My problem is that the second page includes ifram and I want to open specific file on that ifram.

For example when I click on "link 1" in the first page it should open the second page and load "link1.html" on the ifram , also when I click on "link 2" in the first page it should open the second page and load "link2.html" on the ifram and so on.

Any idea ?

You can do that with the querystring.

Add the following script to the second page:
<script>
var QueryString = new Array();
lArr = location.search.substring(1).split("&");
for(i=0;i<lArr.length;i++)
{
   t = lArr[i].split("=");
   QueryString[t[0]] = unescape(t[1]);
}
</script>

And at the place where you have the iframe, you make that:

<script>
str = "<iframe src='"+QueryString["url"]+"'></iframe>";
document.write(str);
</script>

Now load the second page using the following like:
href="secondpage.html?url=link2.html"


Regards,
CJ
