back and forward buttons and how to print

besuti8 asked
hi there,

i'm using dreamweaver 4. i've created a frameset with left and top frames.

on the top frame i want to create back and forward buttons. i think i have to use javasript which i've got the code for, but i'm a bit confused with the frames bit. could you tell me how to target the main frame when clicking on each buttons?

thank you
Watch Question

just use the history.back(), and history.forward() commands. It will take you back or forward a page. As far as I know you don't need to target a frame.

I use this on my web site as well and have no problems


BTW i have never done the print page one


thanks for that.

i'll try it.

<p><p><input type="button" onClick="javascript:parent.main.history.back()" value="Back"></p>

<p><p><input type="button" onClick="javascript:parent.main.history.forward()" value="Forward"></p>

<p><input type="button" onClick="javascript:parent.main.focus();parent.main.print()" value="Print"</p>

main is the bottom frame name.

Good Luck...:)
